You'll need much more than 3 days to see all of Vancouver! It's not a small city by any standards. Lots of history worth taking in like Canadian First Nations. Vancouver has a big park about this. Stanley Park, Chinatown, Gastown, English Bay, the harbour (at night) and the Icefields Parkway are all worth seeing.
You may not be a snow bunny, but that does not mean Banff, Whistler and other alpine areas are not worth seeing. Those mountainous areas are huge and a visual spectacle — and high (fancy a bit of altitude sickness?). Take a helicopter trip over Sun Peaks or the glaciers. Anything but sit in a hotel and drink and talk. Bears active around Banff. People are friendly, very friendly.
Two from this family are at this time on an APT Australia tour of the Rockies and Canada (one month). "Sanitised" for older folk (no walking, cushy beds and 7 days drifing up the Inside Passage) and apparently dripping with luxury and indulgence. So it should at $20,000 a pop...
