Incorrect.

Before Vancouver was incorporated in 1886, it's name was Granville.

Gastown, got it's name when because of Gassy Jack, a bar owner with a lot of hot air for conversation.

Gastown, as far as I know, wasn't used back then, but was created when they redeveloped the area in the 1970's. Just like all the other " towns " Vancouver has made up over the years...Yaletown, Railtown, Crosstown. None of these names existed until development.
