BC resident fined twice for hosting illegal house parties on back-to-back nights

The Vancouver Police Department had their hands full over the weekend with a resident who seemingly refuses to play by the rules.

According to the VPD, officers issued four $2,300 tickets in downtown Vancouver this weekend for “illegal house parties.”


The first two tickets were issued on Friday, as police responded was a “noisy house party” in Yaletown and a party on the 58th floor of a building on West Georgia Street.

On Saturday night, the VPD was back at the building on West Georgia Street for a separate party that had 10 people in attendance.

The host didn’t seem to take the visit from police or the fine too seriously, however, as they were back at it not even 24 hours later.

Officers returned to the same unit on Sunday and found 14 partygoers in the unit this time.

“In addition to breaking the rules around gatherings, none of the people in the suite were wearing masks or practicing physical distancing,” explained a VPD release.

The tenant received tickets on both nights, totalling $4,600 in fines.
