AFL warns city not to evict Occupy Calgary tenters

A fresh warning issued to the city comes from the head of Alberta's most powerful labour group, who says any move against the Occupy Calgary protesters could ruin Calgary's reputation.

According to The Calgary Sun, the president of the Alberta Federation of Labour wrote a letter to the mayor saying the city shouldn't evict tenters.

Gil McGowan says they can't deny the right to peaceful protest if they really believe in democracy.

The AFL represents 140,000 union workers in the province., Thurs Nov 10 2011
