A Former PPC Official Has Been Arrested For Throwing Gravel & Small Rocks At Trudeau

A former People's Party of Canada (PPC) official has been arrested and charged by police in Ontario after he allegedly threw small rocks and gravel at Justin Trudeau during an election campaign stop.

On Saturday, September 11, the London Police Service said that 25-year-old Shane Marshall had been arrested and appeared in court, where he was charged with assault with a weapon.

The police report says that, on September 6, a male threw "gravel" at the prime minister as he was boarding his campaign bus at around 6:00 p.m. in London, Ontario.

Marshall was the president of the PPC Elgin–Middlesex–London riding association, according to reports from CBC News and Global News. A spokesperson for the party told CBC that Marshall has been fired from this position following the allegations.

While the Liberal leader was "uninjured" during the incident, opposition leaders Erin O'Toole and Jagmeet Singh spoke out in his defence.

"Political violence is never justified and our media must be free from intimidation, harassment, and violence," the Conservative Party leader said on Monday.

Police say the accused is next scheduled to appear in court on October 6, 2021.
