I want to say a huge, public thank-you to the members and volunteers of the Abbotsford Police Department who spend hours on end standing on South Fraser Way amid all the horn honking, cheering and flag waving after a Vancouver Canucks playoff victory, to make sure everyone behaves themselves.
This is a tradition that goes back at least as far as the ’94 cup run – I should know, I was cruising South Fraser Way then, too.
And I hope it’s one that continues.
It is great fun to be able to go out and celebrate as part of a crowd.
I’ve been out driving the strip many times, as well as standing and cheering on South Fraser Way.
Thanks for helping keep game night celebrations a safe, family outing that my daughters and I can continue to look forward to every game night!
Go Canucks, go!
