Longtime anti-poverty activist Ivan Drury has been charged after an incident at Maple Ridge’s Anita Place homeless camp.

According to Ridge Meadows RCMP, Drury and another woman were arrested at the camp on Tuesday when police were called to the site “while the City of Maple Ridge continued work in the area.”

Activists say city crews were on site removing tents and structures belonging to campers who have not been “verified” as residents of the camp by the City.
