Stanley Cup Violence In Downtown Vancouver
Parked cars have been set on fire, others have been tipped over and people tossed beer bottles at giant television screens following the Vancouver Canucks' 4-0 loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.
People chanted obscenities and some leaped over raging bonfires as riot police moved in to try to restore order in the downtown streets strewn with garbage and filled with acrid smoke. Flames shot about 10 meters into the air off the cars. The chaos was reminiscent of a similar scene that erupted in the city in 1994 following the Canucks' Game 7 loss to the New York Rangers.
Tear gas has been unleashed on the streets of Vancouver as riot police battle the ugly violence that began after the hometown Vancouver Canucks lost the Cup.
Unhappy Vancouver Canucks fans are rioting The Bay, London Drugs & SEARS........
