this is my vancouver ♥

The Boston Bruins won Game 7 and the Stanley Cup and unfortunately, a riot ensued almost immediately afterward. The violence was mostly confined to the Georgia Street and Hamilton area, close to Library Square and the Canada Post office. While most fans went home dejected and sad, a few assholes decided to do some property damage downtown. But, the amazing thing that happened the next morning was the thousands of volunteers showed up, armed with garbage bags, mops and brooms to help clean up the garbage and broken glass on the streets.

So, I want to dedicate this post to the extraordinary heroes that came and took time out of their day to help clean up the mess, and to the Vancouver Police Department, firefighters and ambulance workers for keeping the general public safe. On behalf of myself and many true Canucks fans:
