OMG CBSA on the street.

WOW slow news day, what ever could the CBSA be up to, it must be nefarious....

BC Civil Liberties Calls on Canadian Border Services to Explain their "Inland" Patrols
by BCCLA
The BCCLA is calling on the Canadian Border Services Agency to explain the presence of "inland" patrols in downtown Vancouver which are increasingly being noted by the BCCLA Legal Observers.

"We are seeing an edgier tone to the policing of the demonstrations with increased incidents of our Legal Observers being pointedly photographed and addressed by name by police officers who are apparently interested in letting our volunteer citizen observers know that the police have gone to some effort to identify them."

Legal Observers attended at yesterday's major demonstrations which proceeded peacefully: an anti-war demonstration that took place at the Vancouver Art Gallery Monday evening and an anti-houseless demonstration took place at noon.

The housing demonstration culminated in a "tent village" that is situated in a vacant lot in the 100 block of West Hastings Street. While all went well at these events, the Legal Observers are noting policing changes.

Micheal Vonn, Policy Director, BCCLA: "We are sensing a shift in the policing culture of the public demonstrations, in particular we are noting the presence of Canadian Border Services Agents patrolling public space. We are unclear on their authority and mandate and ask the CBSA to clarify for the public what they are doing patrolling our downtown streets."

That is some run-on sentence.

I don't know how anyone in BC can stand for this retarded donkey organization.

Why would any Law Enforcement organization need to explain anything to a group of shit-disturbing hippies.
Federally appointed Peace Officers in the execution of their duties.
Why don't you go ask an office worker why they are doing office work?

What did they think the CBSA is doing? Inland Enforcement, hence the name...

I don't know why, I mean its not like the increased police presence would have anything to do with Saturdays violent protest.

I've given thought to going to BC to protest protesting but then I would end up beside the guy who was protesting people who are against protesting. Shouldnt someone tell these people that the money they have wasted or could have earned by working could have been give to a charitable organization. I get the fact that they believe the money spent should be destributed to poorer nations etc etc but some of those piss poor nations still send people to the olympics and it gives them something to stand behind and be proud of...providing they can find a TV.

I am saddend to announce to you all that BC is very very liberal for any of you that don't know "obvious sarcasm". *proceeds to hang head in shame*

If it wasn't for the weather and family obligations I would hightail it to Calgary Alberta where the conservatives hide.
Very good. But brick not hit back!

You should go to Flikr and search CBSA.

The BCCLA has posted lots of pics of CBSA: CBSA IN DTES, CBSA in Pigeon Park, CBSA in tent city yada yada....

Guess their lawyers never looked up what CBSA does before they started questioning CBSA's authorities...

I would fully encourage the BCCLA open a full scale investigation regarding the actions of the CBSA....that would mean less time following me around:D

Policing is a lot like pissing into a dark black pair of pants. You get that nice warm feeling but almost noone notices.
