UFC in Vancity

August 28th, 2009

This was on the front page of both free Vancouver dailies this morning. I don’t read either, but I see them at bus stops and on the bus. Here are the actual articles: Metro and 24. I’ve written about how the UFC would mean money for Vancouver’s ailing tourism industry. Heck I was in a meeting about tourism & hospitality in Vancouver this morning. The UFC never came up but the Keefer, Fortune Sound, the Bao Bai and even issues with Vancouver’s live music venues did. People seem more interested in the businesses that are opening rather than the plight of the Cobalt, the Biltmore may be more saveable. I personally may get more involved or perhaps Building Opportunities with Business can help.

If you want to see the UFC in Vancouver you missed some opportunities to speak and write to council, but the buck was basically passed to the Province, hence the meeting with Mike de Jong. There is a facebook group devoted to this, I’ve been a member for a while.

    Today City Hall passed some sort of law making MMA legal as a sporting event in Vancouver proper for a trial period of two years. Expect Dana White to make an announcement soon, we Vancouerites buy a lot of PPVs per person and we go to a lot of bars and drink and watch professional cage fighting. Even women like it in Vancouver, well some women.
