WHERE: St. James Park

WHEN: Saturday, October 29

WHAT: As they worked to winterize their camp this weekend, Occupy Toronto protestors received a generous gift: yurts. The large, wood-framed tents are a type of shelter popular on the steppes of central Asia, where it can get pretty chilly in winter. Paid for, according to CP24, by “anonymous unions,” they’re being provided by a Canadian company called Groovy Yurts, which, yes, they kind of are.
