2010 security, merchandise and your great Britons
In the last couple of days, I've been out with the Vancouver police looking at how they are trying to make sure the Games are safe.
Walking and driving around the city with Superintendent Warren Lemcke from the Vancouver Police Department, I was struck by the large numbers of people on the streets, well away from the venues. You can see my report below.
It has surprised the police too how many Canadians are simply getting outside to enjoy the Olympic atmosphere.
Every day there are unbelievable queues outside the city centre store where Olympic merchandise is being sold.
Most people want to buy the bright, red mittens which boast the Olympic rings and Canada's maple leaf.
It's often the mascots which are the most successful seller at Olympics but the mittens win easily here, especially since they only cost around 10 Canadian dollars (£6).
This got me thinking about what London could sell to help boost the Olympic spirit. What do you think?
Now, don't go suggesting baseball caps or socks. We are looking for something more creative. Any ideas?
And the other thing London 2012 must steal from the Canadians is a magnificent moment from the opening ceremony.
The eight people who carried in the Olympic flag were a fascinating group of successful Canadians from all walks of life, including actor Donald Sutherland, racing driver Jacques Villeneuve and astronaut Julie Payette.
Who should Britain ask to do the same job in 2012? They have to be British figures known around the world.
Or are there people with a much stronger case? Who are our eight Great Britons for 2012?
