Vancouver Police has issued $2,300 fine to a homeowner for flouting the orders of the Public Health Officer.
On Saturday night, VPD responded to a call from a member of the public about a loud house party in a unit at a condo building downtown.
Responding officers were surprised to see a group of people openly flouting COVID-19 restrictions for social gatherings.
All of the party guests were seated close to each other and no one was wearing masks.
Officers attempted to educate the group on why their gathering was not permitted, but the group was dismissive and non-compliant.
In the end, the main occupant of the suite was issued a $2,300 violation ticket.
