Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot wins prestigious award

Dec 15, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT


Just a note of congratulations to Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot for being named the top news story of the year in British Columbia by CBC. It’s an honor that wouldn’t have been possible without thousands of people joining forces, tipping cars over together, and sharing lighter fluid to set stuff on fire. There were also some great individual performances in the categories of smashing windows and stealing purses. Hats off to all the participants.

    Your writing has gone down hill since your move. Go back to your roots when you actually wrote quality pieces.

      I wouldn’t say the writing has gone down hill. Although, I have noticed more jabs at Vancity than necessary. Maybe aiming to be impartial on the national stage and overshooting a little.

    Isn’t it an honour in Canada?

    Maybe there should be a Winter Riot Classic. Held in the city that gets the most unruly over the most flimsy of reasons. I’d have to say that Montreal would win this hands down. Mon dieu! Scott Gomez does not score again! Les Flannels Cranky are not on top!

    It was a good fire…
    A real good fire.
