And here’s a little known fact: the original name of the area where Vancouver is now located was called Gastown. The huge city has its origins in a site that belonged to a logging sawmill: Hasting’s Mill. The city has played a key role in the transportation of goods, connected to Eastern Canada and the Asian nations.
