Vancouver Riots

Riots broke out in Vancouver last night after the Boston Bruins beat the hometown Canucks in Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup finals. Vehicles were set on fire, store windows were smashed, and rioters battled police officers, armed with tear gas. Last night, Instagrammers captured photos of the riots, and today they’re sharing photos of the recovery effort, which includes a wall where citizens are expressing their disappointment over the outbreak. The photos on Instagram tell a fascinating story not only of last night’s mayhem, but of how the city is bouncing back after the damage. Check out the #vancouver and #canucks tags to see the rest of the story unfold.
