Occupy Canada rallies spread in economic 'awakening' - Canada - CBC NewsCanadian 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.
