The chain of seven Eccotique spa outlets launched advertising Thursday in which rioters were invited to visit a spa and describe their looting or arson on June 15 when the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup.
The confessors will leave a fingerprint on a spa card and then turn themselves into police. When they return to the spa with a police arrest form, they receive the $50 voucher to be used toward massages, manicures, pedicures or waxing, the company said in a release.
Eccotique President Milajne Soligo said the offer was not a reward for bad behavior.
"Suspects can finally come to terms with their conscience, while the police can see justice is done" Soligo said. "These people obviously had a lot of pent-up anger during all the chaos. We think they need to learn how to calm down and relax."
The company published an ad showing a rioter in a police mug shot wearing a spa face pack.
