Occupy Wall Street is given the boot; Rob Ford follows suit by serving Occupy Toronto an eviction notice
The city said it would make its move on Occupy Toronto sometime this week, and Rob Ford offered yesterday that the protesters at St. James Park would be given notice “soon.” But with the PR motive for playing nice with the protesters essentially evaporated—after other Canadian cities cleared out their own Occupy movements and, most importantly, New York City forced Occupy Wall Street protesters out of Zuccotti Park early this morning—the city decided the time had arrived to serve Occupy Toronto with an eviction notice of its own. Back in New York, there are already reports that Wall Street protesters will be allowed back into the park (albeit without tents and their belongings). But we’re guessing the last thing Ford wants is for the Toronto eviction to be temporary. Follow Toronto Now for ongoing coverage [Toronto Star] »

I don’t necessarily agree with the message they are trying to send, or rather how they are sending it, but it is a democratic protest. The best way to make people’s resolve stronger in a democratic process is to try and suppress it.
and this is Rob Ford we are talking about. he will surely eff up worse than the mayors of other cities.
can’t wait to see how this all works out!
