Katie Schneider interviews bylaw officers

Calgary Sun reporter Katie Schneider tries asking the bylaw officers whether they’re allowing the pillow fight or not. They were less than clear about what the rules are.

A public pillow fight was planned for Tomkins Park (17 Avenue and 8 Street SW) in Calgary on Saturday, April 4, 2009 (International Pillow Fight Day). The City found out and warned organizers that they had to get a permit or they would be fined and/or arrested. So, officially it was cancelled, but some people showed up anyhow, and generally kept the "fight" to the side walk. There was a signficant police and bylaw officer presence, but they seemed to sit back, and let a small number of people do a little pillow fighting, without incident.
