The construction has now begun on facilities in the (now referred to as the) twin cities of Whistler and Vancouver and I have all the confidence in the world that these games will go off without a hinge. In fact, I know they'll be a huge success.
Whistler has been long recognized as a premier resort town but it's now garnering a reputation for more than just snowboarding/skiing, mountain biking and golf. The Whistler Film Festival takes place this weekend until December 4th. CBC will be broadcasting "The Hour" with George Stromboulopoulous from the festival, one that has been growing in recent years thanks to increased marketing and attention from an international spoltlight due to the Games.
