One Member Of Common Council Wants Protestors To Leave Square

A disgrace and a nuisance.........That's how Common Councillor Bruce Court characterises the occupy protestors with their tents in King Square.

Court tells CHSJ News he has been receiving several complaints but whether the issue will come up before Common Council at next Monday's meeting remains to be seen.

Police Departments in other cities, including Halifax, have taken action to remove the protesters from city owned parks.

Two of their tents in King Square went up in flames over the weekend with the fires considered to be suspicious in origin. 

Court says that could be an indication some people are getting fed up with their presence.
