As April 20 approaches, questions about "high costs" of 4/20 are coming up again. I have been looking into issue of @VancouverPD policing costs for public events in @CityofVancouver, and I've discovered there's a much bigger story here which needs to be discussed. 1/X #vanpoli
Soaring @VancouverPD bills have been forcing @CityofVancouver's public events into bankruptcy for years. For instance, St Patrick's Day Parade was forced to cancel in 2016 & '17 because they couldn't afford city's high bills, mainly for policing. 2/X news1130.com/2017/12/07/van…
Another example is Vancouver's Santa Claus Parade, which almost shut down in 2017 because they couldn't afford soaring costs of policing. They were saved at the last minute by a big corporate sponsor. 3/X
