Vancouver mayor apologizes to U.K. tourists deemed ‘suspicious’

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson has apologized to three British tourists who were the subject of an internal police bulletin for shooting video inside Pacific Centre Mall.

Robertson invited Mohammed Sharaz, his 14-year-old son Salahuddin Sharaz, and family friend Mohammed Kareem out to breakfast Sunday morning to apologize on behalf of the city.

“The last thing we want to happen is for them to think they weren’t treated well in Vancouver,” said Robertson.

…Sharaz says he is considering legal action against Vancity Buzz, the media website that first published the unblurred photos.
