Man Occupy Vancouver Treated Drug Overdose

November 7, 2011 by staff 

Man Occupy Vancouver Treated Drug Overdose, Mayor Gregor Robertson has declared that the city will take steps to end the Occupy Vancouver tent city in the wake of a young woman’s death inside one of the structures.

“I have directed the city manager to expedite the appropriate steps to end the encampment as soon as possible, with a safe resolution being absolutely critical to that,” Robertson told reporters on Saturday (November 5) night outside the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Police have not revealed how the woman in her 20s died, but it was from a suspected drug overdose. She was found in a tent in the late afternoon.

Less than an hour before Robertson’s comments, NPA mayoral candidate Suzanne Anton issued a statement expressing sadness over the death. Anton also said in the message: “It is time for the tents to be taken down.”

An Angus Reid poll of 760 respondents across the Lower Mainland reported that the Occupy Vancouver protest was supported by 44 percent of respondents. Of those, 13 percent indicated that they “strongly support” the demonstration, whereas 31 percent “somewhat support” it.

There was slightly higher in opposition—48 percent—with half of those saying they “strongly oppose” Occupy Vancouver.

“A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size and a 100% response rate would have an estimated margin of error of ±3.6 percentage points, 19 times out of 20,” Angus Reid reported.
