Predator cheers on Canucks with name change

B.C.’s hockey pride has hit new heights as Predator Ridge changes its name to Canucks Ridge.

Canucks Ridge will be cheering on the home team all week as they face-off against the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The golf resort guests will even be greeted by a new Canucks Ridge sign and staff will don Vancouver Canucks jerseys as their new uniform.

The change comes in response to a petition with more than 200 signatures rallying for the name change. The petition was launched by SUN FM hosts Kevin Lim and Sonia Sidhu.

“We were pleasantly surprised by the petition and all of us at Predator Ridge felt that we should show our support for the home team,” said Rod Cochrane, resort general manager. “Go Canucks, go.”

The temporary change will even see the clubhouse louge decorated in the Canuck colours (blue and green).

Canucks Ridge will also donate $25 to the Canucks Place Children’s Hospice for every goal scored during the series.
