“It would appear as though the City and APD are getting some very poor advice from somewhere.” – Bas Stevens.
From Facebook. In response to: City, APD Lose Bid To Keep Homeless Out Of Court
Trial will go ahead June 29. The court has set aside six weeks to hear the case.
The City of Abbotsford’s attempt to keep the court from hearing hear how The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) police and city staff enforced bylaws against the city’s homeless, as well as the APD’s attempt to keep evidence from the court unless the homeless were required to pay them up to $29,000, have failed.
DJ Larkin, the Pivot Legal Society lawyer representing the Abbotsford Chapter of the BC/Yukon Drug War Survivors (DWS) and Abbotsford’s homeless men and women told CKNW this afternoon that, the BC Supreme Court will now be able to hear how the APD and city staff worked together to enforce bylaws against Abbotsford’s homeless men and women.
