I sort of figured turnout was going to be much smaller when I arrived just before the start time at noon and easily found a parking space close to Esther Short Park.
Speaking with the Columbian’s writer Eric Florip after the rally took to their march, he expressed doubt that even the Columbian would cover this one.
UPDATE: It appears Eric guessed wrong Occupy Vancouver rally collects donations for food bank
Of course the Columbian will paint the movement in every good light they can muster. I do applaud them for conducting a food drive now, but what about all of the other groups around town that do it all years long and never make mention in the Columbian? This is hardly the first or only time food is collected for food banks in town.
