Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Toronto movement, which saw dozens of protesters set up camp in St. James Park for almost two months. A year later, only about 40 people gathered in the park and a planned march that was to take place at 1 p.m. today didn’t happen.
St. James Park
As the Occupy Toronto protest enters its third week, some questions are being raised about the effect on the neighbourhood near the protest’s St. James Park campsite. Reverend Douglas Stoute, the Dean and Rector of St. James’ Cathedral, which sits within the occupied park, said the campers have actually been respectful of the grounds and the community.
