The Tent City in Mayor's Grove, Beacon Hill Park, Victoria, BC, was busted and dismantled on October 17, 2008
Four days earlier, the BC Supreme Court overturned a City of Victoria bylaw that prohibited erecting temporary shelters in city parks.
Two days after that, in a closed door meeting, city council created a new bylaw requiring all tents dismantled after 7am and not put up again until after 9pm.

Police response was swift and uncompromising.
