Yes. When you get an NHL team in Castlegar, or Trail, or Nelson, or Hot Scrotum British Columbia or whatever other town you come from, then you can use a tuque wearing lumberjack.
Anybody who comes to Vancouver will only see lumberjacks at that stupid show they have on Grouse Mountain.
Says the guy from Vancouverish. Were you too embarrassed to say Chilliwack in your profile or something?
BTW, there are plenty of active lumberjacks working in the mountains surrounding the Vancouver area. Sure the contemporary term we use for them is loggers, but its a continuation of the same profession.
You used to be called a slater when you put a roof on a house, now you're just called a roofer. Are those different professions as well?
BTW, that 'stupid' show probably wasn't designed for 30 year old virgins with entitlement issues living in their parents' basement, but rather for children and older people who want to enjoy a little soft adventure tourism experience and a taste of 'authentic Canadiana.' However authentic it actually is, is both irrelevant and moot.
Since you have obviously been up there to see the show, you will know that outside perhaps the middle of July/August, toques are often quite appropriate attire in the coastal mountains.
Also Johnny Canuck is Canadian first and foremost. He has many different incarnations or renditions if you will; but has been an icon associated with the hockey team in Vancouver a hell of a lot longer than the stupid orca whale. Wasn't he first brought in, in the 50's?
Regardless, if he was a drunk french logger conjured up in the aftermath of a barfight, or a BC logger/lumberjack who moonlights as a pilot during WWII, he was redeveloped into something new when the team chose to utilize him, and he still resonates with fans and captures some of the essence of what it means to be a Canuck.
Stan Lee probably could have come up with a pretty bad ass axe wielding mad man, but it probably wouldn't have had the safe mainstream appeal of a guy who can instantaneously hit a 6 block radius with gentle Vancouver rain.
