The best part of Vancouver I would have to offer is the variety of people you meet. Vancouver is full of talented, interesting and inspiring individuals. But sometimes in the throes of losing something we thought we deserved, like hockey, we meet the worst in people. The people who burn police cars, who inflict pain onto others, and generally piss off those who actually love this city.

In short, the rioting has gotten out of hand, and we need to reclaim this city from the wreckage. In the past few hours, thousands of signed up on Facebook to join a city-wide cleaning, and a tumblr account and this Facebook page is making it hard for those who’ve tried to burn this city down to get away with it.

Join the community. This is our city, and this is how we do it.
