When the Stanley Cup was stolen: How a thief took the cup from the Stanley Cups’ safe house in downtown Toronto
When the world was rocked by the theft of the 2013 Stanley Cup, one thing was clear: Toronto wasn’t the only city affected.
On Monday, CBC News broke the news that a thief has taken the Stanley cup safe house at the corner of Queen Street West and Queen Street East, one of the city’s few remaining safe houses.
“We are a city that prides itself on being the most welcoming and inclusive city in the world,” Mayor Rob Ford said.
“We have always embraced diversity and we will continue to do so.”
“I’m sorry this happened to us.
I can’t imagine the loss this has caused.”
In a statement, the Stanley Kings tweeted that it was “shocked and saddened by the loss of the Stanley King safe house.”
The Kings’ owner, Stan Mikita, said he was “deeply sorry” to the community.
“I am deeply sorry for the loss and devastation this has brought to the residents and businesses in our community,” Mikita said.
Toronto police confirmed they are investigating the theft, but no arrests have been made.
The Stanley Kings said they will continue their regular business hours until the safe house is safe.
