Occupy Toronto Rob Ford

Twitter reaction to Rob Ford's Occupy Toronto warning

Tick tock. Rob Ford appears to have started the clock on the Occupy Toronto movement, expressing his dissatisfaction with the protesters during a press scrum earlier today. "We've had a peaceful protest, but I think it's time we asked them to move on," he told reporters. "I'm here to represent the businesses and taxpayers in the city and I'm getting numerous calls. People have told me they've had enough. I think it's the right thing to do."

Look out. When Ford "gets calls," some form of action is not far away — for better or (mostly) worse. A briefing note distributed earlier this week signaled that the mayor's patience was wearing thin, but as of yet, there's no concrete plan to end the occupation. Ford did, however, indicate that he's looking to set up a meeting with police chief Bill Blair "as soon as possible."

Perhaps Blair, who's reputation is still recovering from last year's G20, will offer cautious advice, but it's anyone's guess at this point how this is going to turn out. So, naturally, we put the question out to Twitter: should Occupy Toronto stay or go? Here's what some of out followers and other folks had to say.
