Transit Police are acting quickly to remove offensive ads from Metro Vancouver skytrains.
“We apologize to anybody that this has offended. That was not our intention.”
Spokesperson Anne Drennan says the decision to replace the ads carrying the slogan: “Not reporting sexual assault is the real shame” was made soon after complaints started pouring in.
“What we were trying to say was that it is such a shame sexual offences are so often not reported, and that shame continues with the fact that the suspects are getting away with these offences.”
Drennan says all the insulting ads will be removed by the end of the week.
