    These criminals are called ‘terrorists’ in other countries. I feel they must serve a minimum of one year jail time. More immediate arrests would have prevented some of the carnage. Police just moved them down the street where they continued their vandalism in the next area. This grandma is disgusted!

    I was one of the local crew inside and it was at GM Place NOT BC Place. The 2 venues are across the street from each other. It was scary and we were kept together in a safe place while we could hear what was happening above us (we were at ice/stage level and the riot folk were on the concourse level above us. I now live in Winnipeg and GNR have come through here twice since 2004 and both shows have been fine…just long days.
