Who is Vancouver’s newsmaker of 2010?

It was a great year to be a headline writer in Vancouver — with classic calamities like faulty Olympic cauldrons and bare ski hills, and your pick of political controversies.

It was a great year to be a headline writer in Vancouver — with classic calamities like faulty Olympic cauldrons and bare ski hills, and your pick of political controversies.

There was the bizarre laser-tag incident — sorry, alleged incident — involving Justin Bieber, and the ongoing fiasco with the Olympic Village development.

Metro Vancouver wants to know what — or who — you think is the city’s newsmaker of the year.

Maybe it’s the sudden and back-to-back resignations of Premier Gordon Campbell and NDP Leader Carole James.

Or the imprisonment of Marc Emery for what some say was the “trivial” crime of selling pot seeds online.

Of course there’s also Bill Vander Zalm and his anti-HST team, which may soon make history by forcing a referendum to repeal the highly unpopular tax.

And who can forget freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau, who won Canada’s first Olympic gold on home soil.

Then, of course, there’s Sidney Crosby, whose overtime goal on the last day of the Olympics secured a gold medal for Canada’s men’s hockey team against the Americans.
