About City

Vancouver is Canada's 3rd largest city with an area population of just under 3 million. It has the mildest climate (along with Victoria) in Canada. Unlike most Canadian Cities, Vancouver is divided into several self-governing municipalities. (Vancouver city itself only has a population of about 565,000). The generic term for Vancouver and its environs is the "Lower Mainland" or "Greater Vancouver". Vancouver is North America's second largest Port (in tonnage & physical size - after New York) and one of the world’s major cruise ship ports. I believe it is the 4th largest cruise ship terminus in the world. It has the highest proportion (per capita) of Asians of any North American city. This makes for a great selection of Oriental restaurants. It has one of the largest and oldest Chinatowns in North America.

Vancouver has over 1 million automobiles, almost one for every 2 people. Combine this with the fact downtown is essentially an island, and you have one of the worst traffic nightmares in North America. The West End of Vancouver is the most densely populated area in North America.

Some Famous Vancouverites: Jason Priestly, Yvonne de Carlo, James Doohan (Scotty on Star Trek), John Ireland. We will also claim Raymond Burr, Pamela Anderson, Michael Buble & Michael J Fox. Raymond Burr was born in a Vancouver suburb, Michael Fox grew up here and Pamela Anderson is from Vancouver Island. (not Victoria Island, as Americans seem to call it). The concept of Open Line radio originated in Vancouver in the 50's with the late Pat Burns (who had a copyright on the term "hotline"). It also had the first rock'n'roll radio station in Canada (CKWX) in the early 50's and the first rock FM station (CKLG) in 1967.
