Vancouver Rioters Caused 'Millions Of Dollars' Worth Of Damage

In case you needed any proof that very little of Vancouver's Wednesday night riots technically had anything to do with sports: multiple local businesses are claiming more than thousands of dollars worth of merchandise were lost to looters. In most American cities, this would inspire lots of people to start throwing around the word thugs, but at least hooligans is popping up.

British Columbia's CTV reports the post-Stanley Cup mayhem and looting amounts to "millions of dollars" in damage done to a construction site, clothing store, coffee shop and dozens of other businesses.

Nearby London Drugs was perhaps the hardest-hit venue, with 20 employees forced to retreat when a mob broke through the store's locked and barricaded doors. The company's CEO estimates a $1 million total setback due to destruction and stolen product.
