VicPD are seeking a suspect who allegedly caused mischief during a protest at the BC Legislature on Friday.
At approximately 3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 26th protesters gathered on the lawns of the BC Legislature. The protest was in response to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visiting with Premier John Horgan in response to ongoing flooding across the province.
According to officers, they were on scene working with members of the public and protest groups to keep the peace and ensure lawful access to the buildings.
After the meeting concluded and the Prime Minister had departed the premises, VicPD received reports of mischief at the protest site.
VicPD are now seeking a suspect in connection with this mischief.
We are asking for your help to identify a suspect in a mischief at the BC Legislature during a protest on Friday, November 26th.
