After countless storefronts were smashed in the 2011 Stanley Cup Riot, hundreds (thousands?) of Vancouverites flocked to the boarded up windows downtown, scribbling notes of apology, love and unity, denouncing the shithead rioters who trashed our city. I think even the most reserved can agree that the gesture is incredibly heartwarming. The city has vowed to preserve them as public art.
Friend and colleague Erin Loxam and I have pledged to take and upload one photo every day for all of 2011. See how she’s doing here.
