Penticton, B.C., approves ban on sitting, lying, on some downtown sidewalks PENTICTON, B.C. — Councillors in Penticton have ignored protests from inside and outside the British Columbia city and have passed a bylaw amendment that makes it an offence to sit or lie on some downtown sidewalks. In a crackdown on loitering, Penticton council voted 5-2 to approve an amendment to the Good Neighbourhood Bylaw, giving police and bylaw officers the power to hand out $100 fines. "My platform during the election, my No. 1 priority was crime and safety, and that's what this is all about: safety," said Mayor John Vassilaki. Coun. Jake Kimberley insisted the change looks after the community at large.

Reports of a brutal dog attack on a Penticton baby have been confirmed by a GoFundMe page set up for the family of the Okanagan child.

"On the night of May 31st at 9 p.m. this sweet baby, Kade, was attacked by the family's dog," Daniel Hill wrote on the crowdfunding page set up June 8. "My brothers wife, Amber, and Kade were taken by jet to Vancouver [to B.C.] Children's Hospital."

The child, believed to be 7-months-old according to information on the father's Facebook page, is said to have suffered a shattered optical bone and nose, according to the post.

Okanagan mom calls for action after daughter struck by vehicle while trying to avoid drug user in underpass The Penticton mother would like to see the city do more to address public safety and open drug use, such as increased patrols and the installation of more needle disposal bins. Sidorchuk said she doesn’t know what the answer is, but she’d like to be part of the solution. “I would love to be a part of the solution though, and if we can ban together as a community for those who advocate for safe passages, beaches, fields and schoolyards, if we can all band together and come up with something, I'm sure there is enough of us in the city that can come up with some solution,” she said.

Toronto police are asking for the public’s help locating a man who allegedly threw a “corrosive substance” on a family with an infant baby near Christie Pits Park on Thursday. A man and woman were walking with their baby on Clifton St., north of Bloor St., around 4:30 p.m. when a man on a bicycle approached them and “threw a bottle containing a corrosive substance at the family, striking them,” police said in a Friday news release. The male cyclist then fled the area screaming and yelling, according to the release. The man travelled westbound on Bloor St., then possibly southbound on Grace St., police said. The family received minor injuries in the attack, police said.
