Huge party broken up


Unsanctioned outdoor gathering attracts close to 1,000 young adults to University of Victoria. They did not break any pandemic public-health rules because restrictions have been eased, but police and security officers were still called out Sunday night when hundreds of young adults gathered outdoors to party on the University of Victoria campus. “There were hundreds, if not close to 1,000, young adults up at the university last night,” said Saanich police spokesman Const. Markus Anastasiades. “The majority of the people there were respectful, but as usual, there were some that were not.” Saanich police conducted 50 pour-outs of liquor and ticketed two people for underage drinking. There were no reports of altercations or property damage. “People were just happy not to be inside for a change,” said a first-year student from Vancouver who stayed for part of the evening. “Everybody was really friendly and there was a great vibe.”
