Despite constant warnings from public health authorities saying not to gather in large groups, over 100 teens reportedly showed up to a packed street party in B.C.
According to a video shared with CTV News, a large gathering of over 100 people, many of whom appeared to be teenagers, took over a street in Saanich, B.C. on Friday, August 14.
I have lived here over 11 years, and never have I seen this type of gathering.
Local Sarah Wakefield said a different large group partied in the area last weekend — but there were even more people this time.
The incident came just days after a different video surfaced showing a Vancouver nightclub full of people.
The province has been experiencing a spike in new cases; officials are pleading locals to tone down the partying and follow the rules.
