Jennifer Kanna, Benjamin Fulwiler’s mother, is consoled by friends at a vigil to celebrate what would have been his 12th birthday. Dozens of people blocked the intersection of 27th and Main streets in downtown Vancouver on Tuesday evening to both celebrate the life of Benjamin Fulwiler, 11, and protest against a C-Tran route where he was fatally injured April 28 when his bicycle collided with a bus.Participants in the candlelight vigil, organized by the boy’s family and friends, held a banner depicting a photograph of the Pacific Middle School sixth-grader and the words, “Happy 12th Birthday, Benjamin.” Tuesday marked his birthday.Just as the group assembled across 27th, southbound Bus 37 slowed on Main in anticipation of its usual left turn onto 27th. The driver, seeing the demonstrators in the intersection, continued on Main instead. The bus had made that left turn onto 27th when the collision that killed Benjamin occurred.“We are taking back 27th Street from C-Tran,” shouted Jennie Stanavech, a close friend to Benjamin’s mother, Jennifer Kanna. “No more left turns. It’s dangerous.”At the same time, Benjamin’s aunt, Stephanie Kanna, complained to the C-Tran Board of Directors at their meeting Tuesday evening that Route 37 is unsafe.
