I am a hockey fan, especially when it comes to my Vancouver Canucks and the thrill I have each season that they start to make their run for the Stanley Cup. I’ve been with them through their ups and downs through the 90’s all the way to last year when they were knocked out in the first round. I was with them in Game 5, standing in CBC plaza during the 2010/2011 run, with my close friends, cheering them on as they tied up an exciting series with the Boston Bruins.

Instead, small groups of individuals took it upon themselves to start throwing objects at a large television screen, flip over a car, start fires, vandalize and destroy one of the most beautiful downtown cores in the world.
Vancouver Police Department with assistance from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, quickly brought these rioters under control after three hours, showing amazing control and restraint under some very tense conditions.
Within’ minutes of these hooligans starting this 3 hours of destruction and violence, civilians started tweeting, phoning and volunteering photos and video of the actions of small groups of individuals.
Vancouver needs to hang it’s head because of a group of idiots and hooligans. The media are calling these people morons and asses.
This Is What We Live For.
Words cannot explain the tension, excitment and pride we in British Columbia have for this hockey team. We have waited 17 years for the Canucks to redeem themselves in a Stanley Cup Final, and 40 years for a chance to hoist the most coveted prize in hockey, Lord Stanley’s Cup.
Not since the Olympics has Vancouver been on the edge of excitement and pride, and it’s not just a city. It’s a province, and it’s a country.
