A 500-strong march through the downtown banking district took place on the afternoon of 22 October.

The march hit the big 4 banks, occupying the offices and having customers close their accounts.

The final stop - TD Bank's main branch at Georgia and Granville - took over the space past closing time, until police showed up at the location.
