Canada - More than 150 angry homeless people and their supports stormed the Toronto City Council as they were about to debate a proposal to ban the homeless from sleeping in Nathan Phillips Square. Mayor David Miller and most of the council members fled out a private back entrance as they were heckled by the crowd, who occupied the assembly room for another 45 minutes and then left. The demonstration had been organized by the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP).
