A lot happens in Vancouver. And even more so in the summertime. At 604 Now, we’re here to help you sort through all the news so you know what’s important in your city, and what there is going on. Here is everything you need to know about from this past week.

Incidents Gallore

This week started off with several high profile incidents, all of which were caught on tape by bystanders. The biggest one was an incident between a woman on a bus lashed out at a teenage girl who was visiting from Brazil. The incident is being treated as a hate crime.
