Chandra Herbret

Vancouver: Vancouver Police Hate Crimes Unit is investigating an attack on NDP MLA Chandra Herbert’s office. On the morning of Feb 21, a 53-year-old intoxicated man entered Herbert’s constituency office and shouted homophobic slurs. The man got into a dispute with a staff member, assaulted the assistant, and left the office after punching the door. He was later arrested from the sidewalk near the office. Apparently the man was angry over the rainbow flag hoisted at the office. Rainbow flag is symbol of gay pride.
