Statement on the Arrest of Paul Holden


On Friday September 15th, Paul Holden, President and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade, was “arrested” by the Burnaby RCMP and brought to a jail cell at Lougheed Town Centre where he secured his freedom by fundraising for his bail.

Funds raised for Paul’s “bail” will support the 2017 Cops for Cancer “Jail & Bail” fundraising efforts of Sgt. Tess Landry, Sgt. Derek Thibodeau, and Cst. Michael Kalanj of the Burnaby RCMP and will help fund pediatric cancer research and programs for children and families living with cancer.

Donations can be made here.
