Sophie LaBoissonniere

Anarchists. Thugs. Criminals. Hooligans. Ruffians. Hoods. Beauty queens.

Yes, Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot brought together an eclectic collection of individuals. The Province newspaper is reporting that Sophie LaBoissonniere, a 20-year-old beauty-pageant contestant, is among the latest alleged participants in the mob that tore apart the city’s downtown on June 15.

LaBoissonniere – who (you couldn’t make this up) was named Miss Congeniality in one of her pageants – is facing two charges, one for participating in a riot, the other for break and enter.

No truth to the rumor LaBoissonniere twirls a flaming baton through a car window for the talent portion of her pageants.

    Sounds like she’s a tough lady! Maybe the ‘Nucks should sign her to keep the Sedins safe the next time Boston plays them? I bet SHE’D punch Marchand, at least.
