The Stanley Cup arrived a few hours later than expected in a small southwestern Ontario community Sunday.

Thousands of people braved the heat in downtown Dunnville to celebrate recent champion Nathan Horton’s win and the cup’s arrival with a parade.

But Horton told the crowd at around 1:00 p.m. the cup would be arriving late.

Many of the people who had gathered for the event had already left by the time it arrived closer to 2:30 p.m.
The cup was late because it was left behind in Boston.

Horton, a native of nearby Welland, Ont., was an NHL champion with the Boston Bruins this past year.

“I was a little disappointed about not seeing the cup because that was the main reason why I wanted to go, because I haven’t seen it yet,” said Caledonia resident Amber Eyre, who drove down to see the cup but left at around 1:30 p.m before it arrived.

He “LOST” the Cup?!?! Seriously, why am I not surprised. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on that Horton kid — I knew he couldn’t be trusted with the Grail. It’s safe again, all is well, but I think that obvious the Bruins have shown that they can’t be responsible and take care of the Cup the way that it’s supposed to be cared for. I don’t think they should get to keep it. That’s the way it was in our house growing up — if you didn’t care for your possessions, you didn’t get to keep them!
