Police remove man from ferry terminal for refusing to wear mask

Dec 20 2020, 3:17 pm

A man was removed from the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal on Saturday night for refusing to wear a mask.

Constable Kevin Goodmurphy, a communications officer with the West Vancouver Police, wrote on social media that officers’ first call of the night took them to the terminal.

“Staff reported a belligerent man who was refusing to wear a mask,” Goodmurphy tweeted just after 8 pm.

BC Ferries’ COVID-19 policy states that face masks are mandatory on board their vessels and inside terminals. The ships’ mask signage is quite memorable.

Goodmurphy said that the man was asked to leave the property and officers escorted him out.

“It’s not personal. It’s the rules,” he said.
