While JLo being in Vancouver is exciting news for her fans, one group was severely disappointed by the production.
A local Vancouver group, known as the Binners’ Project, initially had an event planned at Victory Square called Coffee Cup Revolution. But due to the filming, they were forced to move to Oppenheimer Park, according to a post on their Facebook page.
“While we have confirmed space in Oppenheimer for CCR instead, we’re disappointed and frustrated with how this unfolded.”
