“They have had a peaceful protest. I think it is time that we ask them to move on.”

That was Mayor Rob Ford, speaking to reporters yesterday on the fate of Occupy Toronto. This is the most unambiguous comment we’ve heard from Ford since he said last week that he and staff were working on “a plan” to deal with the protesters. He also said he plans to meet with police chief Bill Blair, which offers a fairly clear indication of what he’s going to do.
