Benning's Son Attacked In Yaletown

If this has anything to do with Jim being the Canucks GM, it's sick and twisted.  Well it is no matter what the case, but that would just be so far over the line.  You're not a fan if you do this stuff, you're a maniac.  With that, we don't have the details or know the circumstances so I will reserve further judgement.

The son of Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning was hospitalized following an alleged assault outside a Yaletown nightspot early Sunday morning.

 

Danica Benning, the daughter of the Canucks GM, posted on Instagram that her brother was attacked by four men while the two were waiting for an Uber outside the Banter Room at 1039 Mainland Street.

“I tried to fight them off my brother and then one of them strangled me and threw me up against the wall,” Danica Benning wrote in her post. “The police were notified but (the four men) ran off immediately. My brother is in the hospital.”

Vancouver police spokesperson Tania Visintin confirmed that officers were called to an assault in progress around 2 a.m. in the 1000 block of Mainland Street.

“A 25-year-old man had very visible injuries to his face. He declined any assistance from paramedics and told officers he would go to the hospital himself,” said Visintin.

Danica Benning has two brothers and didn’t say in her post which one was attacked. However, the age of the victim lines up with the age of her younger brother, Nicholas.

Brandon, the older Benning brother, is in his 30s and works as a scout for the Canucks.

Postmedia has reached out to the Canucks for comment.

I sure hope these four cowards are caught, prosecuted, and put in prison.  

Would they have known these were Benning’s kids?  

That’s what I’m wondering. It’s why I thought the whole banner thing and grocery store thing was way out of bounds. It’s easy for things like that to escalate into something dangerous.

Hard to say, I'm sure how much Benning's son resembles his dad. While Benning is a pretty visible Canuck presence I wouldn't think most people would recognize his family?

 

Regardless, it shouldn't have happened.

I don't know for sure obviously but I think it has less to do with being Jim Benning's son & more to do with the type of people in downtown Vancouver (actually anywhere in metro Vancouver nowadays).  No surprise many of the same people took advantage of a given situation (Stanley Cup riot) to loot businesses downtown.

its true downtown for sure on Granville St and in Yaletown, too many packs of men-babies looking to hurt people. A near total lack of police presence doesn't help.

I'm inclined to agree tbh.

Pro athletes, politicians, in this day and age they're all targets. But, a GM's son is a whole lot of crazy.

I always thought John Wayne said this (either in an interview or in a movie but apparently according to Snopes.com, that's a negative).
