Community Forum Cancelled
A public forum organized by members of the LGBT Police Advisory Committee and scheduled for Thursday, February 16 at Gordon Neighborhood House has been cancelled. A new date has not been announced.
The Cancellation was a result of discussions taking place between the LGBT Liaison Officer and members of the the LGBT Police Liaison Committee. The forum was planned so community members could discuss the issue of the recent murder and attacks in Stanley Park as well as general LGBT safety. The cancellation was due to a conflict of interest as a member of the LGBT Police Liaison Committee was involved with a petition recently launched on change.org to keep the Police in the Vancouver Pride Parade. This may give the impression that the Vancouver Police Department was somehow involved in the petition, which they are not, so it was decided to cancel to avoid any conflict. A new date will be posted once announced.
