Mayor looks to shut down Occupy Vancouver
The Canadian Press has the story:
Gregor Robertson says he's instructed city officials to look at how that can be done safely and without disruption.
A woman in her 20s was found dead in a tent at the site in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Saturday afternoon, two days after a man suffered a non-fatal overdose at the encampment.
Robertson says the woman's death is tragic and upsetting for him because he has a daughter about the same age.
Occupy Vancouver supporters tried to drown him out as he spoke to reporters, with one woman shouting that at least his daughter has a home.
Vancouver police spokeswoman Const. Jana McGuinness says neither the cause of the woman's death nor her identity will be released because her family has not yet been informed.
