Abstract: On the 15th June 2011 the ice hockey Stanley Cup final series between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins took place in Vancouver. As the Vancouver Canuks were losing, riots started downtown Vancouver. Social media were used to communicate among authorities and citizenry including the rioters. The media reporting these events engages with different narratives, which in turn invoke different ethical considerations. This paper identifies those narratives and reflects upon the ideas of justice, fairness, responsibility, accountability and integrity as key ethical considerations. The paper also identifies some challenges arising from the use of social media in crisis situations.
