One Down, Three To Go…

“A Vancouver man allegedly involved in a gay-bashing incident Friday night on Davie Street is to appear in court Monday on a charge of assault causing bodily harm. Four men made insulting remarks toward Jordan Smith and a male companion as they walked hand-in-hand near Hornby Street. One of the men assaulted Smith, police say, knocking him unconscious and breaking his jaw in three places… The accused, 20-year-old Michael Kandola, was arrested early Saturday morning shortly after the incident.” [Leader-Post]

    Hey EdWooddy, I have lived in Vancouver going on 4 years now.
    The place completely rocks and it is by far one of the safest cities
    I have ever been in. But of course if there was not the occasional
    incident like this then it would not be a society of humans. Once
    you settle in go through some of the normal processes than everybody tends to go through when they move to a new place your
    gonna love it. It truly is one of the top 3 cities in the world to live in.
