I stopped by the Occupy site today. Some tents, a guy making speeches, and a couple of dogs. (If people here can't bring their dogs, they won't join the revolution - apologies to Emma Goldman.) And a few cops on bikes watching but mostly talking to each other. Oh, and the hot dog vendor there seems to be doing pretty good business.

Downtown Van Business Ass'n blamed Occupy VCR for lower shopping traffic downtown on Saturday. Of course, since the MSM here was speculating out loud that the protest MIGHT be comparable to the post-Stanley Cup riots, or Day 1 of the Olympics (where the Black Bloc vandalized downtown), I am not surprised. I had to pass through downtown Saturday evening to get home after my cousin's daughter's baby shower, and it looked pretty crowded to me; the crowds were too busy paying attention to some buskers.
