Occupy Vancouver disrupts mayoral debate Add to ...

The Occupy Vancouver movement has barged its way into the city’s mayoral election campaign.

Demonstrators from the Occupy camp disrupted a downtown Vancouver debate last night between Mayor Gregor Robertson and his main challenger, Suzanne Anton.
