The tents of Occupy Regina protesters remain in Victoria Park, but their signs came down as hundreds gathered in the park for a Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph.

In the days leading up to Remembrance Day, a number of people expressed concern about Occupy Regina protesters being in the park during the ceremony.

Some of those with Occupy Regina had said they would be observing the ceremony with the crowd that gathers each year.

That is what happened. Many protesters attended the ceremony and insisted they didn’t want to do anything or say anything to take away from the significance of Remembrance Day.

On Thursday, bylaw officers served those at the camp with a notice of bylaw contravention and trespassing. If they haven’t left by Saturday at 8 a.m., they will be ticketed.
