NANAIMO (NEWS 1130) РA controversial tent City in Nanaimo will likely be the site of dueling protests this afternoon, with The Soldiers of Odin group planning to dismantle the encampment, while others are coming out to defend the homeless people there.

A now-deleted Facebook post from The Soldiers of Odin¬†claims they are moving in because of “continued inaction” from authorities and because of reports of “child sex trafficking” at the camp.

However, people living at the camp have denied that claim repeatedly, calling it ‘fear mongering’.

The rally and counter-rally are expected to get going around 12:30 p.m. today.
