Tucked into Canada's southwest corner, less than an hour from the United States border lies Vancouver, the largest metropolitan centre in Western Canada and host city of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Over 35 percent of Greater Vancouver's population is foreign-born which makes the resulting culture uniquely Pacific Rim - think Los Angeles meets Hong Kong with a dose of Seattle. Vancouver enjoys Canada's gentlest climate, which makes for great sailing, golfing, skiing, mountain biking and whale watching. It consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the world.
As the 2010 Olympic Winter Games approach, you can count on NBC to be there to cover every glorious moment of victory and defeat as the world's best athletes face-off in world-class competition. KNSD 7/39 and NBCSanDiego.com will cover all of the local athletes such as Shaun White who takes on the world's best snowboarders along with many others.
