Vancouver, B.C. [September 22]—On Tuesday, September 23, the provincial court of B.C. will deliver its decision on a Pivot Legal Society-led challenge to the City of Vancouver’s bylaws prohibiting street vending.
Using the law as a catalyst for positive social change, Pivot Legal Society works to improve the lives of marginalized communities.
Four residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside are challenging the constitutionality of the city’s street vending bylaw on the grounds that it infringes on the constitutional right to the security of the person. The challenge was heard by the B.C. provincial court this past April.
