Vernon Mixed Martial Arts
There is a ban on mixed martial arts in Vernon, which could be lifted.
In 2014, Vernon passed a bylaw banning professional M-M-A fights due to concerned about a possible link between fights and organized crime.
Now, first-term Councillor Kelly Feher is championing the idea of lifting the ban, saying he doesn't believe that crime is a concern anymore.
City staff will look into it and get feedback from R-C-M-P before they bring back their recommendations to council.
