People in the Downtown East Side feel they are getting ticketed more than everyone else.
Residents as well as Pivot Legal Society are challenging Vancouver Police on the way hand out by-law tickets.
Pivot says 95 percent of some tickets are being handed out exclusively in the area.
Douglas King says this sort of ticketing wouldn't happen in any other part of the city.
"It's the type of behaviour that I think is only seen as acceptable in the Downtown Eastside because you're dealing with marginalized people. If they were enforcing bylaws this way in any other neighborhood, they would never be able to get away with it and that to me is the heart of discriminatory policing."
The complaint comes in the wake of the final report from the Missing Womens Inquiry, which made a recommendation that police should limit the enforcement of minor offences.
