Yesterday saw the raising of the 12th man flag at the BC Lions Training Facility in Surrey. On hand were The Mayor Linda Hepner, Omar Mawjee from Seahawks Canada and Tamara Strachan with the Canadian Seahawkers. The flag was raised at 12:12, however after a few glitches it did not reach the top until 3 minutes later.
