I wasn't thinking of going to see another Canucks game but scored free tickets in Club Section, so figured why not.





There were surprisingly many people at Rogers Arena on Friday evening despite Canucks' season being over already.





Our seats were on the 6th row, so view wasn't bad.







Of course, Wild did score several times during the night and was victorious.





It was a fun night, although Minnesota took the points home with a 2-5 win.

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery", well, I don't know Churchill's era but nowadays it is more fitting into capitalism, not a philosophy of failure but a philosophy of sucks.

^ I had a reflex of googling "winston churchill quotes socialism" at this signature.
The actual bit of speech would be truncated, and may be more like:

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

In either case, fact checking is systematically necessary these days, cause there's a whole lot of BS from propagandists on those online networks.

Capitalism is good at producing wealth, socialism, or say social democracy that's more polite and less totalitarian better at sharing it.
That's about it. Nothing much hard to understand in there.

We spent our Easter long weekend up in Sun Peaks. While there was no snow in Kamloops, the snow base up in the village was a nice 200 cm. It was only our second time to Sun Peaks and we did enjoy the non-crowded runs.

Here are few photos from last Sunday's annual Sun Run event.



Downtown streets get flooded with runners and spectators alike.





There are all sorts of people and creatures running.





Crowds at the goal line.



After the event people are guided inside BC Place for drinks and some music.









Sun Run is a nice annual event in Vancouver and always a pleasure to witness when the weather is nice.
