INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE SANDY GAROSSINO RESPONDS TO MOTION BY SUZANNE ANTON
Sandy Garossino, a former Crown prosecutor and business owner, asks for Suzanne Anton to reconsider her motion calling on staff to remove the Occupy Vancouver tents from the Vancouver Art Gallery.
“In the absence of any cost estimate, it is premature to attempt to remove the Occupy movement from the Vancouver Art Gallery.” says Garossino, an Independent candidate for City Council.
“Any action by the City to forcibly remove Occupy Vancouver carries the risk of violence and will necessarily embroil us in an open-ended and extremely expensive policing and legal process,” says Garossino.
The Stanley Cup riot and its subsequent investigation was one of the costliest policing exercises in recent years, and charges have yet to be laid, she notes.
Occupy protests are going on in 900 cities worldwide, and none have been removed without violence. Physical confrontation is expensive, unpredictable, and rarely successful in a democratic society.
Garossino calls for a measured response.
