Wednesday evening I had the opportunity to speak with Marcia McMillan on CTV News Channel about the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots. This incident has been in the news again as the Vancouver Police have recently laid a number of charges with first court appearances having occurred this week.
In the interview I explain the reasoning behind why it likely took so long for the charges to be laid (many have been critical of this) as well as the suggestion by British Columbia Premier Christy Clark that the trials be televised. My position was clearly against the Premier’s idea (check out the video for my reasoning).
The video can be found here (see the second video under the heading ‘CTV News Videos’).
