Increased public security screening procedures are coming to one of Vancouver’s premier sports and entertainment venues.
- Charges possible for VPD officer after following cyclist who fell off bike
- Langara College arson suspect facing additional charges in alleged assault, theft
- All BC schools will now provide free menstrual products to students
In a move it says are part of its efforts to “improve the guest experience upon entry,” BC Place said that starting this month, security screenings will include the use of hand-held metal detectors.
Failure to participate in screening will result in denial of entry.
On its website, BC Place said it is “committed to providing a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience” and invites everyone to “help make events at BC Place an experience that is welcoming and respectful for all guests, as well as those working during events.”
BC Place added that any guest not respecting the Code of Conduct “may be removed from the venue and may be subject to arrest by law enforcement.”
GUEST ADVISORY: We’re working to improve the guest experience upon entry! Starting this month, security screenings will include the use of hand-held metal detectors.
