B.C. government looking into fines for people who engage in racist behaviour
The B.C. government is looking into whether people who engage in racist behaviour can be ticketed.
Delta North NDP MLA Ravi Kahlon has sent a letter to Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth, formally requesting the province look into what powers the province has to crack down on “racist and hateful behaviour.”
“I understand that some jurisdictions have implemented new, non-criminal sanctions to deter this behavior such as ticketing,” the letter reads.
“I would be grateful if your ministry could determine what options might be available to better deter perpetrators.”
Kahlon has been travelling the province to meet with people about hate and racism in B.C.
The letter comes as communities have noticed a rise in groups like the Soldiers of Odin and the Yellow Vest movement which drew criticism for attracting some members of the far right.
