Calgary warning Occupy protesters to remove tents, or city will do it

Posted: Updated:

CALGARY - Calgary is taking action to remove tents put up by Occupy protesters.

A sign has gone up at the entrance to Olympic Plaza stating that effective 9 a.m. Tuesday, some items may be cleared out by city workers.

At least 33 tents were pitched in Olympic Plaza Monday afternoon.

The city has begun issuing bylaw violation tickets ranging from $25 to $1,000 for first-time offenders.

The protest against corporate greed started two months ago by the Occupy Wall Street movement.

It has since spread to other cities in Canada and the U.S.
