Offensive clothing to be banned

Mike Farnworth, MLA for Port Coquitlam-Burke Mountain (NDP), has tabled a bill that calls for a ban on clothing considered "intimidating and threatening".

Mike Farnworth said his bill would make it illegal for members of motorcycle gangs to wear their distinctive jackets in bars, pubs or anywhere liquor is served.

He said gang members often use the clothing to intimidate and threaten other people.

No word on whether softball uniforms and bowling league jerseys will also be banned.
