THE PROVINCE – SOCCER:
  • Lions 22, Alouettes 10: Shaky start, superb finish for B.C. in home opener
    It’s ironic that the Montreal Alouettes’ charter flight plane did not have enough fuel to make the flight to Vancouver on Friday. The visitors ran out of gas early at B.C. Place Stadium on Saturday night. The Als scored all 10 of their points in the first quarter Saturday, but were held off the scoreboard […]
  • World Cup 2018 predictions: Who will make it out of the group stage?
    The World Cup has begun, as 32 nations vie for soccer dominance (or, as most of them would say, football dominance). But before any of the competitors even think of hoisting the coveted trophy, they have to make it out of the group stage. Who moves on to the round of 16? Who goes home […]
  • Bob Lenarduzzi: New-look England aims to make amends for getting waxed at Brazil 2014
    England against Tunisia is the big Group G game Monday at Volgograd Arena, in what is proving to be an entertaining FIFA World Cup in Russia. That game is preceded by Panama against Belgium at Fisht Stadium in the other Group G match. Belgium and England are clear favourites even though both have a history […]
  • Video: Lions DB Marcell Young absolutely crushes fan on the field with shoulder check
    The B.C. Lions took to the field on Saturday to kick off their CFL regular season campaign. So did a fan, who kicked off his shoes, ditched his pants, hopped the rail and sprinted across the turf during a first quarter stoppage in B.C.’s home opener with the Montreal Alouettes, taunting the players and officials […]
  • Lions Game Day: B.C. looking to restore the roar against Als in season opener tonight
    The B.C. Lions and Montreal Alouettes, not endeared by most CFL pundits to be Grey Cup contenders this season, are set to begin their seasons — and efforts to prove the football forecasters wrong — tonight at B.C. Place Stadium. The game gets underway at 7 p.m., and will be televised on TSN and carried […]
  • Trevor Hargreaves: Trump is wrong — this time about Canadian dairy
    The United States has long been fond of a “bigger is better” economic model. In an increasingly globalized economy, the dedication to carving out new markets to justify growth is a growing liability across the border. In the U.S., a combination of large dairy farms paired with ongoing technological improvement has created an ever-increasing surplus […]
  • Mike Smyth: For NDP, lots can go wrong when Krog vacates Nanaimo seat
    Columnist Mike Smyth writes about NDP MLA Leonard Krog running for mayor of Nanaimo and the resulting by-election that could bring down the government.
  • Fred Lee’s Social Network: A parade of distinguished women
    WONDER WOMEN: Sixty-five leading ladies — business and community leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers — were feted at the 35th annual YWCA Women of Distinction Awards. Always a sellout, this year’s affair was no different as more than 1,200 guests squeezed into the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver Ballroom for the premiere party, recognized as one [… […]
  • New Vancouver Giants GM fires Jason McKee, begins coaching search once again
    I wondered if Jason McKee would finish the season as Vancouver Giants coach. I did think he’d at least get a chance to start it. Vancouver took a step forward this past season with McKee back for a second straight campaign at the helm, with the club making the playoffs for the first time in […]
  • Far-flung Morocco: Beyond the souks and into the surf
    “You do not need strength for surfing,” says Waled, demonstrating a pop-up on his beached surfboard. “It’s all about technique.” He makes it look easy, so I take his words to heart and steer my big beginner board into the churning Atlantic off the coast of Taghazout, Morocco. The forgiving beach break goes on for […]
