Wow, first off - congratulations Janice.
Next visual representations of weather maps around Vancouver (all of Canada in fact) are available on line. The best place to go is the Environment Canada web site at http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/jet_stream/index_e.html.
Also to get good quality representations of cold fronts, warm fronts etc check out http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/mtr/home.rxml
Note that there is one meteorological feature that is primarily only used on Canadian maps: a trowal, or a trough of warm air aloft (American's call it a warm occlusion).
