Well, it was fun while it lasted. Councillors in the city of North Vancouver voted to disband the North Vancouver Athletic Commission on Monday after former chairman Mirko Mladenovic was impeached and replaced by city bureaucrat Dave Rudberg. UFC recently opened a corporate office in Canada with the intention of spreading the gospel to unregulated areas like Toronto. And while fan support is at an all-time high, especially with Canadian stars like Georges St. Pierre going mainstream, politicians are not impressed.

Right, you've seen enough of MMA surfing through channels to make an educated decision. Good thing people who take the time to understand things before making decisions about them are the ones running the country.

Whew! Good work Pam!

I have a hard time believing this will last very long. Some time in the near future I'm sure popular demand and the revenue they will bring in from other countries will sway their opinion, no matter how ignorant and knee-jerk reactionary these idiots are (the politicians I mean).
