The Last #OccupyToronto Structure Goes Down

There were folks in the gazebo when I left last night (see earlier photo)
and the same folks rolling up sleeping bags this morning. This is common in
St.James Park, though I suspect they are #OccupyToronto straglers because
of the drums. (The regular park crowd keep it quiet and more subtle, or at
least did in the past)
This morning the final structure, which had been buried under leaves, was
pulled down.

As I suspected, the leaves were being used for insulation over a
constructed A-frame covered in tarps over a store-bought tent. It was a
fantastic job of winter-proofing a tent as a semi-permanent structure.
However I suspect the police thought it might be something more, since it
was left until after the park was cleared. And the media was there filmimg
intently until it was obvious it was a winterized tent.
I wonder if they thought it was a stash of some sort or booby-trapped.
No drama today, yay!
