Tent city

Residents of tent city called RCMP on Nov. 11 to the pop-up protest outside of city hall, because one member of the group was intoxicated and starting fights. The individual was asked to leave and allowed to return once they were sober.

“Other than that, the tent city has been pretty good,” Corporal Devon Gerrits said. “We’ve stopped in every now and then and talked to the people, and they all seem pretty peaceful.”
