It also appears that Oasis Hong Kong may start flights at the end of May. According to another thread, Wikipedia and

The South China Morning Post (article dated 11 Jan 07). "The carrier also plans to begin a service to Oakland, California, in June and expects to get approval to fly to Vancouver in three months....Vancouver will be the third destination once the carrier receives approval from the Hong Kong government to serve the route....
Mr Miller said he expected approval to be granted three or four months from now as the Hong Kong-Vancouver route is underserved, keeping ticket prices high."

China Eastern returns to daily flights YVR-PVG and Air China is upgrading their daily YVR-PEK flight from a B763 to A330.
