Courtenay mayor, Greg Phelps, was interviewed by CTV News and he promised a stronger protocol to help crub any future attacks. No word yet from other by leaders in surrounding communities.
According to Constable Tammy Douglas, from the RCMP, the last two attackers at large turned themselves in only after realizing that the issue is not going to go away. The suspects are currently charged with standard assult charges, but that may change at sentencing. The BC Hate Crime Team is currently involved.
