One arrest following Vancouver protest

ONE person was arrested following a protest that blocked an intersection in Vancouver on Saturday afternoon.

“Approximately 75 people marched to the intersection of Main Street and East Broadway at around 2:30 p.m.,” said Constable Tania Visintin. “They placed banners in the middle of the intersection, disrupting traffic for several hours.”

After protesters were given time to express their views, VPD officers asked the group to disperse. Most of the crowd left the area, except for one 26-year-old woman.

The woman was arrested for mischief and released pending a future court appearance.
