VPFD – Vancouver Police Fire Department

^Vancouver Police & Fire Department aggressively manhandle and assault protestors at the Vancouver Art Gallery while extinguishing a sacred fire lit by a native elder. During the scuffle to remove their only source of heat; a pregnant woman was thrown to the ground, a man on crutches for 24 hours, minor injuries sustained and dozens of people complaining of chemical burns and respiratory problems after firemen unleased their extinguisher, at point blank range, into the faces of those surrounding the fire.

The fire was contained in a barrel and surrounded by at least 10 ft of concrete. A fireman worked with a native elder to assure the fire was safe and to code but changed his tune immediately after it was lit. More on that story here Fire Department Official Sparks Conflict
