MONCTON, N.B. - After more than 138 days, Matt Bertin has called it quits as the so-called Occupy movement's last protester in Moncton.

Bertin spent most of the winter camping out in front of the Aberdeen Cultural Centre.

Although he continued working at his day job, he gave up his car and apartment to take part in the protest, which was inspired last year by a New York protest against capitalism.

Bertin says he is leaving Moncton and now plans to do some travelling to meet others in the Occupy movement.
