Vancouver is a town in the south-west of British Columbia and on the west coast of Canada. It is the third largest city of Canada. The population is 611.869 and it's named after the British captain George Vancouver, who explored the area in the 1790s. 52% don't speak English as their first language, almost 30% of them are Chinese. That's why the city is often called Vankong or Hongcouver.
Sports The 2010 Winter Olympics and the 2010 Winter Paralympics were held in Vancouver. In the near of Vancouver, there are three ski areas: Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymore.

Traffic There aren't freeways, but there is a tram network (Sky Train), which connect all parts of the city. In the past there was a railway network too, but now Vancouver has buses.
