Not the Olympics: Vancouver tourism depends on convention centre

The second summer followng the Winter Olympics of 2010 has shown a fall in overnight stays in Vancouver. Instead of a legacy from the Olympics tourism has depended on the Vancouver Convention Centre.

"I know a lot of people are hurting," said Vancouver Trolley Company president Jim Storie. "I look at my numbers and how we've done this year, I think 'thank God for the Vancouver Convention Centre.' If we didn't have that convention centre bringing in all these people we'd be in a lot worse shape than we've been in the past."
