Yesterday was a sad day for Vancouver and it was not reflective of the Vancouver that I've come to know and love. I sat yesterday mesmerized and unbelieving as I saw the riots unfold in downtown Vancouver on TV after the loss of the Stanley Cup (Ice Hockey).
Vancouver is beautiful. The first time I set eyes on this city, I was impressed - mountains, sea and so much greenery, just so much natural beauty. The people are friendly, welcoming and cosmopolitan. Things seem to run efficiently enough. Lots of great food and produce too.
This is the Vancouver I know.
Today, citizens are rallying together, cleaning up voluntarily and slowly returning the downtown back to business. How long will it take to heal?
