Vancouver and Vernon both have provincially authorized MMA commissions that sanction the events. They USED to allow anyone to throw these fights, but that has changed over the past years. Several events were shut down because there was no athletic commission. Now there is. That's the only reason so many fights happen in Vernon; not cause its a great city, but becasue they have an actual commission.

And the article brings up a valid point. These things need to be sanctioned so that ppl don't get hurt. We certainly don't need to boxing commissions running anything though, MMA commissions do just fine with the proper support.

LOL, you're a fool. The municipality's permission is ALL that is needed. If they decide they want an MMA commision, that's fine, but it isn't a province-wide requirement. There are plenty of events that happen with no commision.

You say a commission isn't required, the fucking criminal code says it IS! Who do you think is right?

You DOUCHEBAG! In absence of a commision, the municipal coucillor responsible for sport IS THE FUCKING ATHLETIC BOARD. GO **** YOUR HAT.

The Vernon event that was cancelled had several council members, and the MAYOR planning to attend and it was still shut down by the RCMP.
Start posting sources or STFU!

LOL, my sources are the events I've attended, WITH COPS THERE AS SECURITY, that didn't involve a commision.
I'm planning my own event locally, and there will be no commision, I'll do it on the reserve where the RCMP are not allowed to go without express permission. You can come fight me there, vale tudo rules (which the chief has already green-lighted), if you want, you fucking piece of ****.

Hahaha! Go to the Island to fight some chump from the internet! What makes you think I care THAT much! You're the one who apparently wants to fight. I could seriously care less about this, but it looks like you really can't handle getting owned in yet ANOTHER legal matter.
And fighting won't change the fact that I'm right in this matter. Getting away with an un-sanctioned event doesn't mean the law allows it. It just means no one cares enough to pursue it.
