  • One arrested in LGBTQ rally

Vancouver police say one person was briefly taken into custody yesterday during protests and counter-protests related to including sexual orientation and gender identity supports in B-C schools.

Police say the arrest happened during a confrontation between opposing groups but they say there were no significant public safety issues.

Two people were arrested in Victoria during a similar encounter and in Prince George, a man opposed to L-G-B-T-Q issues was arrested for pushing a speaker at a rally supporting inclusion of all gender identities.

The person who was pushed says they will pursue charges against the suspect.
