    Occupy Canada rallies spread in economic 'awakening'

    Occupy Canada rallies spread in economic 'awakening' - Canada - CBC News
    Canadian organizers are revving up their plans for the Occupy Wall Street-conceived global action day, the most adventurous idea yet for a movement that some experts say has the potential to trigger a major shift in the economic thinking of governments and big corporations.
    The number of Occupy Canada cities for Saturday's rallies has grown to at least 15, while the international total is now more than 1,500. At least 20 cities also have Facebook pages dedicated solely to the movement.
    As of Thursday noon ET, Occupy Canada's Facebook page garnered more than 12,000 "likes" and more than 17,700 people were "talking about this." Offshoot Occupy@ cities include Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, several other cities in B.C., Ottawa, Sault Ste. Marie, Edmonton, Calgary, Saint John, Moncton and St. John's.



    OWS has been spread lately to places up here in Canada. Under a different name of course but the same movement. It's growing too.

    Nothing much is wrong with the economy here in Canada. Deficit is on track to be eliminated, economy has stabalised, why the hell are they getting pissed off? I see there support for OWS, but nothing is wrong here and they need to realise where they are living. Spoiled bastards.

    I believe this may go global as the US is certainly not the only country that has been molested by the financial institutions. Maybe we can get past the finger-pointing stage and start resolving some of the policies and procedures that allowed things to get this bad. I know various factions have differing views on what needs to change, but surely that can agree on some and bend a little to get things rolling.

    Holding them here too, in a country with low unemployment and a growing economy. In America it's warranted, in other 1st world, liberal democracies with strong economies it's protesting for the sake of protesting.

    If Tony Abbott had his way, we would be occupying Nauru.
