Protest in Downtown Vancouver leads to 8 arrested

Darpan News Desk Vancouver Police, 15 Apr, 2021 12:19 AM
  • Protest in Downtown Vancouver leads to 8 arrested

Vancouver Police had to arrest eight people for mischief and obstruction in relation to two protests held at two different Downtown Vancouver buildings today, after hours of attempted negotiation.

“Two groups of protestors chained off the main entrances and exits at both 250 Howe Street and 999 West Hastings Street,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. “For several hours, officers and building managers asked them to leave as this was creating a serious safety hazard.”

Eight adults, between 22 and 38 years old, were arrested for mischief and obstruction.  It is expected they will be released from custody today pending a later court date.
