In 2008 the VPD budget was $180 million. In 2019 the VPD budget was $317 million. How can they claim the VPD had been defunded when their budget has been increased by $137 million?
The City of Vancouver has already "defunded" the VPD for the last 10 years. In 2020 we have just got to 2009 staffing levels, amidst increased demand and work load. City's own citizen engagement survey shows 85+ % citizens and businesses are in support of VPD. https://t.co/9pgG4P6NP3
