Your "assessment" of "liberals" not owning guns or being capable to defend themselves from the Canadian government is a complete load. I'm British
Columbian, I grew up in a small forest town where most people have guns for hunting and self-defense while at the same time despise both the
government and politics (especially the police).
I've been all over BC, met thousands of my people, and the only people who support gun laws and government are usually upper-class or very well off
who feel that they need the police to keep us grubby huligans away from their property. In other words, most conservatives around here are not common
In fact, if you want to even get political about it, the Conservative Party of BC hasn't been in the top two on the ranking list for a long time in
terms of public opinion.
So far, a lot of those identified are recent high school grads and students of universities. A lot were from out of town too..
Youth? You mean the current brain power of the modern Canadian generation? And most of them weren't from Vancouver (not many people in Vancouver
really are from there, by the way)?
These were BC citizens. This was BC culture.
I find it funny that some of the people who were arguing with me earlier in this thread actually didn't even know what the Canucks were, yet they
still felt it necessary to form the popular opinion without even understanding the situation.
Hockey is religion for a lot of Canadians (as another poster mentioned), and the truth is that there was going to be a riot regardless if the Canucks
won or not.
Turns out the photo is extremely popular and has symbolized the riot to some extent. Damn good PR for the people!
PS Even RT has covered this (but I doubt most people on ATS will accept it as real because RT is biased and all
), here's some more great
