The difference between the hockey riots in Vancouver and Boonstock is that the stadium was secured effectively in Vancouver. They had proper security, increased personnel and deployment as a response to the risk (a riot or some other crowd control incident was considered), and the facility itself had few if any security or safety related issues.

In Vancouver, the impact to public safety occurred outside, off stadium grounds and arguably unrelated to stadium activities. The City of Vancouver established large outdoor viewing areas to watch the games, and literally encouraged hundreds of thousands of people to migrate downtown for the event. Due to those variables, plus the relatively poor response time by the police services (truth be told, they should have had a larger riot team available to respond quicker, considering how likely those in the private security field felt a riot would occur), it resulted in a riot that, in all parts, was outside of the stadium's security plan.

Boonstock, this is not the case. Their security plan failed to mitigate the appropriate security risks and as it may have impacted public safety, policing costs are assigned to them.

In short, one of these is an example of private security forces used efficiently to mitigate major risks at a reasonable cost, and the other is an example of private security forces completely mis-used, resulting in a major public cost and public safety risk.

Are we still flogging this dead horse? How bout we see what happens after year two or three when there might actually be some empirical evidence to make a valid judgment on.

I understood that Boonstock had signed a 5 year lease with the landowner. Wonder how that will work if they don't continue with Boonstock?

Boonstock organizer, owner, and general spokesman was a hockey tough guy years ago. Put up a couple of 200+ minute seasons in the BCHL. Maybe Goonstock does apply.

Would not be at all surprised if a buyer was being sought. Would be very interesting if the PIB bought it. Or the money behind Barefoot Beach. They do after all seem to have a penchant for utilizing Reserve Lands and the unique exclusions that come along with it. Where else would you see a fitness center and sound stage being built within a few feet of a Highway easement and not many more feet away from the high water mark of a lake.
Does anyone know if there is a sewage/wastewater connection for this building? As far I know there is not.
