I guess I was wrong

Up until very recently, I tended to think of British Columbia as the natural breeding grounds of the infamous soft-shelled socialist... but recent events are revealing La-la Land to actually be the Wild, Wild West...
Police in Metro Vancouver say they rescued an 18-year-old Chinese student, who was kidnapped on Saturday, in a dramatic early morning takedown.

"Members of the VPD … executed numerous takedowns on multiple vehicles and the hostage was rescued uninjured," Deputy Chief Doug Lepard said in a news release.
I'm thinking this has to have something to do with the "target rich environment". Remember when infamous bank robber Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks?

Sutton's answer... "That's where the money is."
