Welcome to our V week and as presenter this week, I'd like to introduce you to my home "city" of Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. You may all recall that we had the 2010 Winter Olympics here last February and it was a smashing success! Unfortunately, you may have heard about the embarrassing riot after the Stanley Cup (hockey) final game this past June where a bunch of loony-tunes torched police cars and other cars, smashed store windows, and generally went wild. This mid-adventure was so un-Canadian that 99% of us were horrified and rushed to make amends by cleaning up the streets and setting things right as rain again.
Anyhoo, Vancouver lies on the west coast of Canada and is the 3rd largest city in the country. You can read about the city here but in the meantime, here's a very short list of some famous people from Vancouver. How many do you know?
Michael Buble,Pamela Anderson, Michael J. Fox, Joshua Jackson,Evangeline Lilly, Leslie Nielson, Sandra Oh, Grace Park, Jason Priestley, Ryan Reynolds, David Suzuki, Eckhart Tolle, Margaret Trudeau, plus many many famous musicians, scientists, writers, etc.
