Stanley Cup in Campbell River

Rod Brind’Amour brought the Stanley Cup, professional hockey’s most important trophy, to Campbell River just days after the Hurricanes won the Cup. Campbell River is a big hockey town. Most Riverites are Canucks fans, but with the Canucks out of the playoffs it set the stage for all of Campbell River to cheer Rod and the Hurricanes on!

Here are a few images, taken by Erin Wallis Photography, of the Stanley Cup at Tyee Plaza in Campbell River. Contact Erin Wallis if you would like to use the images.

The chemicals are used in everything from non-stick cookware to stain-repellent fabric.”These chemicals are everywhere in our homes — stain repellants, non-stick chemicals, kitchen products, rice cookers.
