Santacon Vancouver: Update

beer_santa.jpgI had a post about Santacon a couple of weeks ago [mbv] which is a part of global Santarchy hijinx. Thanks to a tip from Keith, here’s an update on the event that took place Saturday, Dec. 16th.

BURNABY, B.C. (CP) – Even Santa can be a little naughty at times. RCMP were called to a disturbance at Metrotown Mall near Vancouver on Saturday and found a gaggle of 100 Santas carrying a gasoline container full of “a pungent mix of holiday cheer.”

“The Santas were relieved of their cocktails and sent on their way without incident,” RCMP said in a news release Tuesday.

“Santa was using public transportation and no reindeer were located. With the seizure of the Christmas spirits, police feel confident he will not be impaired at the reins and be on schedule for next week.”[Yahoo]

Naughty, naughty Santas. Did anyone attend? Feel free to leave a comment… names may be changed to protect the innocent

    I saw them walking South on Burrard, past the HMV – I expect they’d just gotten off the train a couple of blocks down, so this was likely shortly after they’d been invited to spread xmas cheer elsewhere, by the police.
