Vancouver Convention Centre III

February 15, 2015 § Leave a comment

Adjacent to the West building of the Vancouver Convention Centre is the Jack Poole Plaza, named in honour of Jack Poole, who was responsible for securing the bid of the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics to Vancouver.

On the Plaza is the 2010 Olympic Flame that, due to cost concerns, only has it’s flame lit on special occasions.
