I recommend this video to anyone, it just shows you how much Occupy WallStreet has effected small communities around the world.

This made me feel happy. Great Introduction and Discussion

Today, the Federation represents approximately 70,000 members of affiliated unions in more than 350 locals working in every aspect of Nova Scotia's economy.

The Federation's role is primarily a legislative one, in which it lobbies government on behalf of workers on a wide and varied range of issues.

Included among them:

Occupational health and safety
Medicare and health care
Workers' Compensation legislation
women's rights
human rights
The Trade Union Act
social programs
child care
labour standards, minimum wage
workplace training
political action

Occupy Nova Scotia is off to a great start and getting huge support from the community. It looks to me that the eviction notice on November 6th will not work if they stand their ground.

News On Eviction

The Eviction is issued so they can clean up for the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the war memorial on November 11th in which Occupy Nova Scotia currently occupies.

5000 people are expected to attend the Ceremony.

Haha, good to see this on ATS
I'm a local. But i think they should definatly leave the square for the 11th, just one day.
I mean, just in respect is all. And they should be allowed to come back.
Guess we'll see how it goes!

I just moved away from Halifax, but I completely agree. Parade Square is packed full every year! I would hate to see it ruined by a tent city. They could always come back a little later right?
