“The VPD supports protesters’ right to peacefully assemble and express their opinions, however, we will not stand by when people choose to break the law or damage property,” stated Sgt. Steve Addison. Source – cbc.ca

Addison stated a 20-year-old man and two women, of the age group of 18 and 16, were taken to Vancouver prison and have since been freed pending their next appearance in court. 

“They did not meet the lawful requirement to be released at the arrest location, as it was likely they would continue to engage in the criminal activity for which they were arrested,” Addison said.  Source – cbc.ca

“Instead, they were driven to jail, given access to counsel, and released on an undertaking after agreeing to attend court and agreeing not to return to the location of the offence.” Source – cbc.ca
