One person has been arrested and two people were taken to the hospital after a stabbing in Kitsilano on Friday morning.
The Vancouver Police Department said the incident was unprovoked and those involved may have known each other. “Their relationship is still something we are investigating,” said VPD.
The two people taken to the hospital are said to have non-life-threatening injuries.
On Twitter, people are questioning why more isn’t done to prevent crime in the city.
Wonder how many more stabbings we will see before actions to deter and prevent these crimes are taken. These people being hurt are someone’s son, daughter, sister, brother, spouse, staff etc. not just statistics! Soft on crime never works. @Dave_Eby @iamkennethchan @dave_pasin

Vancouver City Councillor Melissa De Genova weighed in, saying recommendations from a public safety meeting can’t come soon enough.
Looking forward to next month when @CityofVancouver staff and @VancouverPD will come back with recommendations from the #PublicSafety meeting of Council last month. It can’t come soon enough. #VanPoli
