The District of Oak Bay issued a notice to homeless campers under the Trespass Act on Thursday, ordering them to leave Uplands Park…

On Thursday morning, Oak Bay police cut open some zip-tied tent zippers to inspect them for “safety” and to advise campers of bylaws prohibiting day camping and “interfering with the lawful use of that area of the park by others … rendering it inoperative to others,” said Deputy Police Chief Ray Bernoties.
