A jury convened by a Coroner’s Inquest has deemed the death of Myles Gray to be a homicide, seven years after he was dead following an altercation with Vancouver Police. But this is only the latest in a long history of challenges for policing in Vancouver. Meanwhile, the province has recommended Surrey continue transitioning to the Surrey Police Service and Brenda Locke refuses to read the reasons why.
Vancouver Council opts to make Gastown car free but also wants to give developers a big cheque. Burnaby is still figuring out the Alternative Approval Process and considering moving city hall.
And the Park Board mulls a goose cull.
