Vancouver Canucks Apologize For Campfire Tweet

The team tweeted a photo from its training camp of some prospects building a small campfire.

Chalk this up to a "poor decision."

The Vancouver Canucks were burned by online criticism this weekend after the team tweeted a photo from its training camp of some prospects building a small campfire.

Problem is, the province is under a complete ban on open fires as crews battle close to 200 wildfires.

The Canucks' campfire was part of a team-building exercise in Shawnigan Lake.

After many people responded online that the team's tweet was badly timed and inappropriate, the team issued an apology.
