    That made me chuckle cause it's so true. It's hilarious what makes Canadians get so riled up or instill fierce patriotism. Last year, when Canada won the hockey gold, people in my stiff conservative city ran out of their houses to party in the streets. I was downtown and took a walk to Parliament Hill where thousands of Canadians gathered to sing dozens of drunken "O Canada" renditions. I'm sure if we were bombed by some rogue nation at the same time we'd have ignored it until the party was over.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    i kinda doubt that.......... but since you are in Canada's Capitol......do all cities in Canada build a wall when they host a major event to hide the poverty stricken part of town, or is that just a Vancouver thing?

    Oh, completely. And conservative cities do it as well, they just sugar coat it in a different way.

    To be honest, I adore Canada. I have a bunch of friends there. I've actually considered moving there a few times.

    Our slums look like palaces compared to what I have personally seen in many major American cities. Just sayin'.

    We'd love to have you! :-)

    There are a lot of great things about Canada and some not so great. But we are both lucky that we mostly live in great and prosperous nations.

    I really dont see why this goes political...every city has its fair share of assclowns...unfortunately...several cities worth descended on Vancouver...

    One can only hope the police utilize video and brutalize these simple minded little ****s.

    This is why I prefer small towns.

    So, while some of the Van fans obviously were out of line, I think it is important for everyone to also see this.

    What seemed distinctly more Canadian were the e-mails the Globe received from some Canucks fans, apologizing to the city of Boston for their fellow fans’ behavior.

    “I would like to congratulate the Boston Bruins on a game well played for the Stanley Cup,” Lindy Bellamy, a Canucks fan from Abbotsford, British Columbia, wrote to the Globe. “And most of all I would like to apologize to the Bruins hockey team and the people of Boston for the outrageous behavior and disgusting sportsmanship shown by a small few that caused so many problems in riots in the city of Vancouver after the game.”

    It doesn't excuse what Van fans did, but it does say a lot about others reaching out and emailing the Globe apologizing to Boston.

    Im in Vancouver now and have lived here most of my life and there is no way this was done by hockey fans. The guys who did this were well prepared days earlier and are the same ones who protest at every major public gathering.

    During previous games the streets were full of many thousands of genuine fans and there was good will everywhere. This is not Vancouver or its hockey fans.
