OPEN TO PUBLIC (BUT NO LONGER LIT) At the end of the opening ceremonies of Vancouver's Olympic Games, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky jumped in the back of a pickup truck and made his way to Vancouver's waterfront to light up the cauldron. It now shines brightly just east of the new convention centre and has become an instant attraction. Unfortunately, you are only able to see the flame from behind a secure chain link fence. According to VANOC officials, it is a security risk to allow people too close to the flame. If you want a nice photo of the Olympic cauldron (without the chain link fence), VANOC says they will post a few photos you can download off their website vancouver2010.com.
