The other day I joined a fan club – a real fan club.

Canucks Fan Time Lapse Videos

June 13th, 2011 @ 1:46pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I love featuring creative videos of Vancouver, from time lapses to tributes that tug at our heart strings. There’s no shortage of content being uploading during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and fan enthusiasm is at an all-time high. Even the Johnny Canuck video has been published on the Huffington Post.
