The situation in Parkwood intensified yesterday morning after City officials came to remove temporary structures, which were symbolically erected on a piece of land on Prince George Drive. Residents on Saturday confirmed that they would dismantle the structures once they had handed over a memorandum of demands to the local councilor. But, upon inspection on Sunday morning, officers reported that more people had moved in overnight. A BP petrol station was looted during the protest action and the local councillor was removed from his property for his protection.
