Photographer's Note

The title to this photo reflects many Vancouverites feelings about the Orca.

The Orca whale is an Iconic symbol of Vancouver, and if you come to our city you'll see it plastered everywhere. There are whale boat sight seeing tours, and many T-shirts, hats, and souvenirs with the Orca whale.

A big reason why its 'hated' is because of the passion of our fans for the National Hockey League team the Vancouver Canucks.

Hockey is religion here in Canada, so the passion runs through our veins, mine included.

The Vancouver Canucks team logo used to be a skate blade, and everyone liked it, there were no issues or complaints about it.

Then when the team was sold to a new owner in the late 90's, the owner changed the skate blade logo to......you guessed it...an Orca Whale!!!!!!!!!!

Yikes

Needless to say, almost ALL hockey fans here dislike the new logo and often make fun of it.

In this photo, you can see a large Orca whale located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, with Coal Harbour seen in the bg.

I'll add a couple of WS photo's of the same area too.

thanks for looking
