UVic students fined during 100-person “bush party”

January 13, 2021
Two UVic students have each received a $230 fine for failing to comply with an officer’s request to disperse during a 100-person “bush party” near the University of Victoria’s campus. Times Colonist reports that students had congregated in the bushes on a nearby road and that many were not wearing face coverings. After the police ordered them to disperse, many students congregated again in smaller groups. “So, we had to deal with some of them on multiple occasions as we tried to disperse that group and encourage them to go away,” said Oak Bay Deputy Chief Const. Mark Fisher. Times Colonist | Global News (BC)
