  1. I think Mr. X is right. Even though I'm commenting from afar, I think their focus right now on doing according to Vancouver and Canada is a natural way (it's what they know), but as they move closer and closer to the games themselves, with the venues nearing completion, the focus will likely change toward the international and actual hosting side of the games. As I've said before, and in that I think they'll do a great job, surpassing Salt Lake City.

  2. The expanded facility will be used as the international broadcast and press centre for thousands of media during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The 100,000-square-metre centre, which will be linked to the existing convention centre at Canada Place, will feature a so-called "living roof" of native plants and greenery.

    It will be a great location for the media and press during 2010, much better than the other locations previously discussed.  Centrally located and awesome with the shots behind the anchor's desks of the mountains in the distance, I would think.  "Living roof" we can accept, although it's not exactly a replacement for the actual thing.  Just to make sure I'm orienting myself, as I'm not from Vancouver proper, ... the new addition is to the north of the current convention and cruise ship terminal, am I correct about that?
