Status since photo:
The statue of Rick Hansen outside Rogers Arena honors his legacy as a spinal cord injury advocate. The Vancouver native is one of Canada's top two disability icons (along with Terry Fox) and is known for his cross-Canada journey in a wheelchair to raise funds for the cause, as well as his accomplishments as a Paralympic athlete. During the 2010 Winter Olympics, he was one of the torchbearers in the opening ceremony held at the building next to the statue, BC Place.
