I think they’re tired of hanging out in the park.

That was Councillor Doug Ford telling CP24 why today’s eviction notice really isn’t so bad. According to Ford, apparently the Occupy Toronto protesters have wanted to go home for a while now, but thought it would look bad to bail on their comrades. Hearing their silent pleas, the city has given them all an excuse to go home to their jobs (assuming they have homes and jobs). We thank you on their behalf, Doug—because we’re sure you know exactly how the folks down at St. James Park feel.
