In this episode, Vancouver Special takes look back at 2010 – the year that Vancouver hosted the world at the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Join us as CBC's Ian Hanomansing sets the scene for the year and John Furlong, CEO of the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, and Dr. Jack Taunton, Chief Medical Officer for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, share their memories of this incredible international event. Then, bringing it all together, VPL librarian Tim McMillan is back with some great reads you can find at your library.

In February and March of 2010, Vancouver took its place on the world’s stage and created an outstanding and memorable experience for athletes, visitors and locals alike. With glowing hearts, thousands of people – athletes, officials, volunteers, artists, visitors and Vancouverites – came together to create a lasting legacy that can still be seen around city today.

Filled with memorable moments, the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games are a remarkable and defining part of Vancouver's history and are considered by some to be one of the best Winter Games in the history of the Olympics.

The theme song is “North Wind” by Vancouver band Lakefield, from the album Sounds from the Treeline.
