Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, leading some parts of the Internet to refer to them as the "Stargate City Olympics". This came after hosting Expo '86 (the 1986 World's Fair), a minor transportation themed exposition; the Expo featured the opening of Vancouver's light-rail transit system, the SkyTrain; as of 2006, the SkyTrain held the record for the longest fully-automated rapid-transit system in the world.
