Occupy Toronto evicted

Protesters lose appeal to resist city order

An Ontario superior court judge upheld Toronto’s eviction order against protesters occupying the city’s downtown St. James Park on Monday. Justice David Brown found that authorities were imposing a “reasonable limit” of the freedom of speech of demonstrators of the Occupy Toronto movement when asking them to clear the encampment at the park, the National Post reports. Protesters have been told to pack up the site where they have been camping out for over a month between 5.30 p.m. and midnight today, although the Toronto Police Service told the Post that no decisions have been taken yet on how to enforce the city’s order.
