I am glad the natives where going to protest. People always complain on line but never do anything about it.

National Aboriginal Day - set by Federal Government
International Yoga Day - set by United Nations

The bridge closure event was approved by the City of Vancouver (with consideration of policing/traffic etc), and the Premier gets reamed for supporting it, and calling out the haters (literally). Thanks guys, we are now back to no-fun-vancouver. I hope we don't have a Sun Run or BMO Marathon ever again because I couldn't drive through downtown on a Sunday morning.

yeah i read $70k alone was to be dedicated to the policing
were they gonna dispatch air 1, and a full ERT squad or something? That's $10k per hour!

mind you this was before all the heat it got on media and people wanting to protest.

I wish people would stop comparing this Christy Clark yoga farce (hey it' rhymes!) to the Sun Run and various marathons.

Runs have their dates set months, if not a full year in advance. This was announced 2 weeks prior and falls on not one but two other important days.

Fun Runs/Marathons also recoup the majority of their costs through entry fees and corporate sponsorships. Plus, it makes sense to RUN across a bridge. How does it make sense to put a yoga mat on a dirty asphalt while doing downward dog?

Oh and please, if this event determines whether or not Vancouver is defined as a no-fun city, then we're even more pathetic that I thought. "Fun" is not, under my definition, government sanctioned corporate publicity stunts.

I don't do Yoga, but I thought it would be pretty cool to be on the Burrard St Bridge watching the sun rise on summer solstice.

There are plenty of government funded events which don't include runs. Things like Canada Day Celebrations, Fireworks, etc - all get funding from different governments, while they're still sponsored by corporations. Hell, the fireworks were sponsored by a tobacco company for a long time until they made it illegal.

Even those who do yoga, who the hell would like to put their matt down on a fricking bridge roadway?

I would hazard a guess that the bridge was chosen for its height to view the sunrise, so in that respect it makes sense. But the second you factor in the cost and massive inconvenience, that idea falls flat pretty fast.

pretty off-topic, but i was stunned yesterday when i found out that first nations get more lenient criminal sentencing than everybody else... so laws apply less to them than the rest of us because their ancestors were abused by our ancestors

She was handed a suspended sentence and 16 months' probation, given credit by the judge, because of her efforts to turn her life around — and because she's of First Nations heritage.

Harris noted Vanichuk is "a first time aboriginal offender" and handed her the light sentence, citing a section of the Criminal Code that calls for "all available sanctions other than imprisonment that are reasonable in the circumstances" for aboriginal offenders, because of the historical mistreatment of First Nations people and their disproportionate representation in Canadian prisons.
Stanley Cup rioter's victim describes controversial sentencing as 'wonderful outcome' - British Columbia - CBC News

i agree something needs to be fixed if they're disproportionately incarcerated, but this is absolutely fucking ridiculous

Yeah, that was the other thing that got me... after it was cancelled, they had the Grand Chief (or some other spokesperson) saying that the protest was off and now they would "celebrate Aboriginal day instead".

Uhhh... WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST DO THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE AND LEAVE OTHER PEOPLE THE FUCK ALONE TO DO THEIR THING??

Not sunrise, but... yeah, the bridge gets some pretty fantastic views:

If Vancouver is a no-fun city, maybe it's because Vancouverites like it that way....

What if a leak comes out in 5 years that Yoga day was specifically created as a part of many desperate attempts in reducing the native Canadian movements?

Is it any surprise when the majority of the 'security counsel' veto holders are also the creators and supporters of ISIS and the U.N. is basically sitting on its ass while atrocities are openly being made.across the world. Like in Yemen now, indiscriminate bombing of women and children... these numbers are surpassing the last Gaza blood bath.

Anyway sharpen your blades ghuys, Yoga on the bridge is the last thing you'll remember when youre up north, being sniped by Russians, for control of Arctic natural resources.

Yes, I'm sure the UNITED NATIONS created INTERNATIONAL Day of Yoga just to fuck with the natives in CANADA, a country that doesn't even rate for the UN Security Council. The WHOLE WORLD is celebrating Yoga just to piss off a handful of Canadians.

Because there are spending 150K of tax payers money. If you want to spend 150K that's up to you but when you want to spend 150K of other peoples money they have a right to complain.
