Canadians are usually not as patriottic as the Americans in hoisting national flags, but Canada place has a maple leaf flag hanging every couple of yards. Inside the complex you can see an overview of the history of Vancouver. You also find the World Trade Center and the Vancouver trade and convention center in the same complex. This center has a seating capacity of 11000 guests. Canada place also houses the Pan Pacific Hotel (which housed Boris Jeltsin during his summit with Clinton) as well as an IMAX theatre, and a cruise ship terminal. Most of the cruises take the route to Alaska.
