How To Help Clean Up After Vancouver Riot 2011? Facebook Helps
Sickened By the Stupidity of the Vancouver Stanley Cup 2011 Riot? Here's How You Can Help Clean Up
In case you're wondering: Vancouver is not a city full of douchebags. The vast majority of Vancouverites were horrified by the 2011 Stanley Cup riot and would like to do everything they can to help fix their city.
On the night of the Vancouver riot, a Facebook group was set up to organize volunteers to clean up downtown Vancouver after the riot.
According to the "Post Riot Clean-up - Let's help Vancouver" Facebook page:
"VPD and the city say it is good to go! You can head down at anytime and start helping out. Granville st. is closed but everywhere else is open. Lets do this!"
The group says that they hope to have volunteers cleaning up as soon as the morning of Thursday, June 16, 2011.
They recommend that volunteers bring gloves, garbage bags and a positive attitude. There doesn't seem to be an exact meeting spot, but hopefully if you head downtown, you will find like-minded people who are interested in cleaning up the city and its reputation.
