“If you have recently visited our parks and beaches during the gorgeous weather, the third wave is, unfortunately, very reminiscent of the first wave, with crowds and disruptive behaviour,” said West Vancouver Mayor Mary-Ann Booth.
“Our police department and staff are already working hard to enforce bylaws and manage our public spaces, and it is still very important that we all continue to follow the recommendations of Dr. Henry.”
