Kevin Biestra Posted October 31, 2019 Share Posted October 31, 2019 (edited) After the Canucks lost Game 7 in 1994 and the riot tore the downtown apart, and the city was in poor graces on the international stage, the Canucks had to fly home back to Vancouver after the game, and word got out a little bit about when they were arriving. So a smallish but notable group of people from all around the GVRD had the same idea and drove out to the airport to provide some positivity, to cheer on the players as their plane landed and they arrived back home and made their way off the plane, to probably crawl into bed with black eyes and ice on their bruises. To make them feel appreciated for what they had given the city. But the cops were freaked out after the riot, so they corralled all of these cars into a field where you could just kind of see the player and they could just kind of see the cars if they looked in that direction and squinted. The charter landed and they made their way off, and something like a mile away, maybe 150 cars with maybe three hundred people started honking and cheering... And the players kind of looked over like...was that a noise over there? Shrug. And got on the bus and that was that. And everybody kind of looked at each other and shrugged and got in their cars and drove home. I think only perhaps 300 people and a dozen cops know this even happened.
