 This torch is from the AGT March of Champions 1995 Canada Winter Games Torch Relay. It visited 16 Alberta communities before lighting the cauldron to open the 1995 Canada Winter Games in Grande Prairie.

This torch was preserved by being stored sealed in the AGT March of Champions Time Capsule given to the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in trust to be opened the next time the Canada Games were held in Alberta. At a press conference on January 15th, 2019 the time capsules were opened in preparation for the 2019 Canada Winter Games to be held in Red Deer from February 15 - March 3, 2019.
