Vancouver Police issued four $2,300 tickets this weekend in downtown Vancouver for illegal house parties – two were to the same party host within a 24-hour period.
On Friday night, police responded to a noisy house party in Yaletown with ten people in attendance. The host was given a ticket and the party was dispersed.
That same night, just after midnight, police responded to a party on the 58th floor of a building on West Georgia Street. The tenant of the unit was issued a ticket.
Police responded to two other calls in the same building – one on Saturday night and then again on Sunday. Both calls were for the same unit. On Saturday night, there were ten people at the party. On Sunday, there were 14 partygoers. In addition to breaking the rules around gatherings, none of the people in the suite were wearing masks or practicing physical distancing. The tenant received two tickets – one for each night.
