Well behaved on Canada Day

Kelowna crowds were large but, for the most part, well behaved on Canada Day.

That's how Cst. Kris Clark described the mood downtown during Tuesday's national holiday.

"We saw about half the files we would normally see on a regular weekend," says Clark.

"The crowd was very well behaved and disbursed very well."

As of 1 a.m. Wednesday Clark says about 12 arrests were made.

There were about 20 in total for the 24 hour period.

Most of those were for public intoxication or causing a disturbance.

Some people were also found drinking in public, however, Clark says that carries just a fine and is not an arrestable offence.

Clark attributes the quiet day to the fact the Canada Day holiday was in the middle of the week and not part of a true long weekend.
