City seeking injunction to force protesters out of Olympic Plaza

The city has served all the Occupy protesters who remain at Olympic Plaza with court orders in a bid to have them removed. ((Bal Brach/CBC))Occupy Calgary protesters still camping at Olympic Plaza were served with court orders late Wednesday as the city moves to have them legally evicted.  

The summons require the activists, camped out in the downtown park since mid-October, to appear at Court of Queen’s Bench on Dec. 2

The city is seeking a legal injunction to have the protesters and their tents removed from the public park.

On Monday bylaw and police officers dismantled much of the encampment in a late-night operation, removing more than 30 tents and other structures. About 10 tents are left in the park.

Bylaw Services director Bill Bruce said every protester still in the plaza was given a court order.
