Brickbats (The Worst) Goes to Mayencourt

BC Civil Rights Group Awards Best and Worst in Civil Liberties for 2004

Brickbats (The Worst)

To Lorne Mayencourt and the Provincial Government for the Safe Streets Act to deal with "aggressive panhandling".

Nevermind that the Criminal Code already deals with aggression and the new law makes even the meekest of solicitations illegal if they occur within certain zones around pay phones, bank machines, bus stops, public toilets or parking lots.

Hmmmmm… you don't think this has anything to do with street sweeping the poor, do you?

Thank you for bringing this up again. Did you see his "living" with the homeless stunt. The man has no honour.
