When Built: June 13, 1994
It is the mascot of the North Burnaby Vikings (high school)
The plaque on the Viking reads:
"This statue of the Burnaby North Viking symbolizes the spirit of strength and courage in each of us that seeks new challenges and new horizons to make a better world.
Created by John Clarke and built by the staff and Welding students of Burnaby North - June 13, 1994"
Apparently graduates refer to it as Satan and every single household on the street across from it signed a petition against it being erected. It was vandalized in 1995 or 1996 to have blonde hair, makeup and a pink bra!
It is dressed in a fur-trimmed red hat during December.
