“Water polo player suspended, accused of rioting in Vancouver”
CP headline, June 18, 211
I heard Mike Smyth get all class “warfare”ish on the radio the day after riot. Channeling Bruce Allen and Don Cherry he claimed there was a political agenda afoot… “Did you see the cars they went after? High end.”
So they’ve got the first anarchist… the son of a Mission doctor… star of the water polo team… attends an elite private school called Meadowridge Academy.
Maybe, the kid was channeling Malcolm MacDowell in the great “IF“. Or maybe he was just a drunk jock, charged up on playoff hockey, in from the ‘burbs to wreak havoc.
Whatever… They made anarchists different in my day… Do you think it might have been Mike Smyth who had the political agenda?
