On Dec 20th an Indigenous grandfather and his granddaughter were racially profiled and arrested at the Bank of Montreal in downtown Vancouver. The grandfather has been a customer of the bank since 2014 and he was simply trying to open an account for his 12 year old granddaughter so that he could transfer money to her when she was on the road for her basketball games. A bank employee decided that the pair were suspicious and called the police who placed them both in handcuffs and took them away. For more information see this CBC article.

A family member has organized a rally today @ 1PM PST @ the BMO 595 Burrard St in Vancouver
