Day – I'm Ready For My Surprise Close-up

Oh sure. Totally out of the blue and unplanned.

How fortunate there were so many reporters available to chronicle this amazing act of spontaneity.

Vancouver police investigating another stabbing in the city’s Downtown Eastside had a surprise visitor Thursday morning: Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day.

The minister’s unexpected appearance on a street corner in Vancouver’s grittiest neighbourhood surprised police and reporters who were already at the crime scene.

After emerging without notice from his official car, Day spent a couple of minutes being briefed by Sgt. Anne Drennan, the former VPD media liaison turned beat cop, before talking to reporters while his two handlers looked on.
