After over 200 eloquent and passionate speakers first step to transforming police work to community led work passes. Still lots of work to do. Keep the pressure up.

My police motion pushed to July 21. Over 200 speakers signed up. I'm wondering if this is a record. I can't remember anything having this many speakers in my several decades. Lets keep up the pressure

222 speakers signed up for 's motion to start the process of defunding the police and prioritizing community-led initiatives. I've never seen this large a number on any member motions. People are fed up with police violence.

I’ve got a motion coming to council tues: that council directs the mayor to inform the police board that it is this councils priority to respond to mental health, sex work, homelessness, and substance use with community-led initiatives rather than policing

Not OK. Forcing homeless people from an OK place to who knows where. Property rights trump human rights again .

Don’t displace homeless tenters next to CRAB park. They have nowhere else to go! We’re in the middle of two pandemics. Let them have some relief of not being pushed around every day.

More BC overdose deaths in May (170) than COVID deaths since it started (167). Why don’t we shut down the province to stop ODs?

How many police will b responding to complaints of homeless people in alleys, doorways, sidewalks once, then again and again as the people r moved from site to site—if they r forced out of the parking lot next to crab park?

A riddle: What’s 1 thing govts could do that would save lives, reduce suffering, help businesses, reduce issues in neighbourhoods, and save taxpayers money?

Police budget cut 1%. Reduced work due to bars being closed, no big sports events, no celebration of lights etc.
