S08-2 Royal Bank of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights
S08-3 VANOC and Government of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights

The content of the VANOC image set and the Government of Canada image set were found to be identical in content and organization, so only one set was retained, and assigned to a single sub-series.
