Several hundred demonstrators from #OccupyVancouver staged a 'run on the banks' today, with nearly a dozen closing their accounts at major Canadian financial institutions -- ending the action with a take-over of a Toronto Dominion bank branch, dance party and sit-in.

The action -- which drew roughly 350 people -- was meant to draw attention to financial corruption and record bank profits during the financial crisis, as well as bank support for tar sands and other environmental destructive projects.
