By now, you've heard about Vancouver's Burrard Bridge being closed on June 21 to celebrate the International Day of Yoga.
Announced by Premier Christy Clark and sponsored by lululemon athletica, YYoga, and Altagas, the Om The Bridge event will see the bridge closed to car traffic between 4 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Kids' entertainer Raffi Cavoukian, who I blame for my having to sing "Down By the Bay" to my young one more times than I can count, has criticized the event for taking place on National Aboriginal Day.
Raffi has even promoted the hashtag #shunthebridge on Twitter.
On Facebook, hundreds of people have indicated they will show up for a counter-event on the same day to mark National Aboriginal Day.
Instead of see-through yoga pants and mats, attendees are being asked to don "traditional wear and bring your drums".
The event page calls the yoga celebration "disrespectful" and states:
THIS IS NOT A PROTEST!!! This will be a peaceful event to bring awareness about Aboriginal Day and invite guests to our events. Please bring pamphlets of events happening in and around town to distribute.
The Burrard Bridge lies in the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, and runs through a Squamish Nation reserve.
Update (June 12): #OmTheBridge has been cancelled.
