Awesome 10-minute walking tour of Vancouver City Centre Station:





And a shorter 5-minute walking tour of Oakridge from the last open house:

Like I said, that map is not accurate enough.

This one might be better to see it with the whole region:
Since they are building the line as Skytrain, now Im wondering if there is any chance of a line from Lougheed Town Centre, across the Millenium/Expo line down to Richmond...

Lougheed to Richmond? Straight as the crow flies? Not really on the radar. More likely it'll be a trip west along the M-Line to Broadway, and a transfer to the C-Line to Richmond like Allen2 said.

Just wondering, why did they opt for sky blue to represent the Canada line over red when they already have a deep blue for the Expo line? Wouldn't red have been more fitting as a national colour as well? Or did they want the same logic for using blue and green in the logo?

They're using Translink colour scheme - so light blue instead of red.

Apparently because red would be confused for other colours for those that are colour blind.
