Bannister and Landy have both pointed out that the crucial moment of the race was that at the moment when Bannister decided to try to pass Landy, Landy looked over his left shoulder to gauge Bannister's position and Bannister burst past him on the right, never relinquishing the lead. A larger-than-life bronze sculpture of the two men at this moment was created by Vancouver sculptor Jack Harman in 1967 from a photograph by ''Vancouver Sun'' photographer Charlie Warner and stood for many years at the entrance to Empire Stadium (Empire Stadium (Vancouver)); after the stadium was demolished the sculpture was moved a short distance away to the Hastings and Renfrew entrance of the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) fairgrounds. Regarding this sculpture, Landy quipped: "While Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt for looking back, I am probably the only one ever turned into bronze for looking back." thumb left upright Statue of Bannister and Landy in Vancouver (File:Bannister and Landy.jpg) On 7 August, at the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver, B.C., Bannister, running for England, competed against Landy for the first time in a race billed as ''"The Miracle Mile"''. They were the only two men in the world to have broken the 4-minute barrier, with Landy still holding the world record. Landy led for most of the race, building a lead of 10 yards in the third lap (of four), but was overtaken on the last bend, and Bannister won in 3 min 58.8 s, with Landy 0.8 s behind in 3 min 59.6 s.

Within the DC Universe, Metropolis is portrayed as one of the largest and wealthiest cities on Earth. Since then, Metropolis has become a city inspired by New York City, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, Vancouver, and Los Angeles. Most of the notable landmarks in Metropolis are based on real-life landmarks in New York City. However contrary to belief, Metropolis, according Joe Shuster, was modelled after Toronto.

HRM currently accounts for 40% of Nova Scotia's population, and 15% of that of Atlantic Canada. While electoral districts in Canada are now exclusively single-member districts, in the past, multiple-member districts

were used at both the federal and provincial levels. Alberta had a few districts in its history that returned from two up to seven members: see Calgary (Calgary (provincial electoral district)), Edmonton (Edmonton (provincial electoral district)) and Medicine Hat (Medicine Hat (provincial electoral district)). British Columbia had a mix of multiple-member districts in Vancouver and single-member districts elsewhere until the 1991 election (British Columbia general election, 1991), and Prince Edward Island had dual-member districts until the 1996 election (Prince Edward Island general election, 1996). '''''Millennium''''' is an American (United States) television series created by Chris Carter (Chris Carter (screenwriter)), creator of ''The X-Files''.

'''Vancouver''' ( ; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish language): ''K'emk'emelay''), title Knowing Coves accessdate December 26, 2014 url http: zuky.tumblr.com post 68067156016 officially the '''City of Vancouver,''' is a coastal seaport city on the mainland (Lower Mainland) of British Columbia, Canada. The 2011 census (Canada 2011 Census) recorded 603,502 people in the city, making it the eighth largest (List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population) Canadian municipality. The Greater Vancouver area of around 2.4 million inhabitants is the third most populous metropolitan area (List of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in Canada) in the country and the most populous in Western Canada. Vancouver is one of the most ethnically (Ethnic groups in Canada) and linguistically diverse cities in Canada; 52% of its residents have a first language other than English. Vancouver is classed as a Beta global city (global city). The City of Vancouver encompasses a land area of about 114 square kilometres, giving it a population density of about 5,249 people per square kilometre (13,590 per square mile). Vancouver is the most densely populated Canadian municipality, and the fourth most densely populated city over 250,000 residents in North America, behind New York City, San Francisco, and Mexico City.

The original settlement, named Gastown, grew up on clearcuts on the west edge of the Hastings Mill logging sawmill's property, where a makeshift tavern had been set up on a plank between two stumps and the proprietor, Gassy Jack, persuaded the curious millworkers to build him a tavern, on July 1, 1867. From that first enterprise, other stores and some hotels quickly appeared along the waterfront to the west. Gastown became formally laid out as a registered townsite dubbed Granville, B.I. (Granville, British Columbia) ("B.I" standing for "Burrard Inlet"). As part of the land and political deal whereby the area of the townsite was made the railhead of the CPR, it was renamed "Vancouver" and incorporated shortly thereafter as a city, in 1886. By 1887, the transcontinental railway (Canadian Pacific Railway) was extended to the city to take advantage of its large natural seaport, which soon became a vital link in a trade route between the Orient, Eastern Canada, and Europe. As of 2009, Port Metro Vancouver is the busiest and largest port in Canada, and the most diversified port in North America. While forestry remains its largest industry, Vancouver is well known as an urban centre surrounded by nature, making tourism (Tourism in Canada) its second-largest industry. Major film production studios in Vancouver and Burnaby have turned Metro Vancouver into one of the largest film production (principal photography) centres in North America, earning it the film industry nickname, Hollywood North.

Vancouver is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life, and the Economist Intelligence Unit acknowledged it as the first city to rank among the top-ten of the world's most liveable cities for five consecutive years. Vancouver has hosted many international conferences and events, including the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, UN Habitat I, Expo 86, and the World Police and Fire Games in 1989 and 2009. In 2014, following thirty years in California, Vancouver became the indefinite home of the annual TED (TED (conference)) conference. Canada will host the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, and several matches will be played in Vancouver, including the final at BC Place Stadium. The 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics were held in Vancouver and nearby Whistler (Whistler, British Columbia), a resort community north of the city.
