One year after the Vancouver hockey riot which followed the final game of the Stanley Cup playoffs on June 15, 2011, University of British Columbia Educational Studies PhD candidates Shannon Moore and Kal Heer discuss their research and writing on those events, the media coverage, the aftermath, and the community response. Their discussion for The F Word around race, class, gender, policing, and citizenship is based on their papers for a panel at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) on April 17th 2012.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
