I scared the hell out of a passenger

Well, there's more to the story. I was waiting to cross the street at Burrard and Georgia... and there was a car waiting to turn right... a fancy convertible with a douchey driver and a -- well, I don't need to insult her look, but it goes with what happened next. She was smoking a cigarette, and she contemptuously threw it out of the car, where it landed right by my feet. So I picked it up and threw it back in the car, where it must have landed on her lap or on the floor, I'm not sure. She screamed. I heard the driver yelling "What the FUCK!?!" But the light turned green for me, so I started crossing. And I heard some yelling and honking behind me, but I didn't turn around and there was no big explosion, so I think everything is just fine... as it should be under the circumstances. So yeah, don't litter.

Cigarette butts are some of the worst types of litter there is.

Most of us love what you did.

Fun fact:
Lower primates (monkeys) throw things at each other in territorial disputes. Usually feces and anything else that comes to hand.
Humans are a parallel evolutionary track so we have similar programming. When someone throws something in our direction, there's a primal urge to throw it back.
The lack of situational awareness you describe is very typical of the social norms here. Elsewhere, litterbugs usually have the grace to hold off until no one is around, or at least no obvious witnesses... One gets used to, for example, "trucker bombs" by the side of the road. Boys just trying to pay the bills.
Really, couldn't happen to a more deserving person. Don't throw smoldering sh*t at other people - this should not need to be said.
I very, very rarely say this, but... You done good.

There was that kid in Burnaby who did that a couple years ago and the woman went and got her boyfriend to follow him into Starbucks. Dude was punched so hard he hit his head and died. Look it up. As satisfying as it can be to teach douche-nozzles a lesson, it isn't worth endangering your life.
