Should longboarding be banned on public streets? – A timeline of recent events in Vancouver

Vancouver, BC: You know things are getting serious when Peter Mansbridge, the head anchor at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, introduces a story titled “Should longboarding be banned on public streets?” on his national broadcast. While there have been many media coverage about the issue in the past but none with quite the same momentum.

This spike in interest is sadly due to five major accidents involving longboarders in the region, including an accident in Maple Ridge in which a 12-year-old boy who hit a car suffered serious head injuries.
