Showdown at the memorial hall.
Police say they are reviewing the video of the incident, but in the "first investigation", after one policeman choked, the interaction between the policeman and the individual on the scene was a "conflict". I found out that I did.
After that, another officer responded and four people were arrested.
Army Reserve James Top, who was accused of criticizing the obligation of a uniformed vaccine earlier this year, finished his cross-Canada march at a commemorative ceremony on Thursday and was a "freedom" demonstrator. Cheered him.
We are reviewing the video at the National War Memorial tonight and investigating the case.— Ottawa Police (@OttawaPolice)July 1, 2022
The first investigation found that the interaction with the officers became confrontational and one officer was choked. Other officers responded immediately and four were arrested
Downtown Otawa There is a large police presence in advance in a planned demonstration organized by "free" protesters on Canada Day. A picnic at Strascona Park is scheduled tomorrow, with a march and dance party in downtown.
City police called for RCMP backups while the "Vehicle Exclusion Zone" was enabled around the Capitol, and Mayor Jim Watson went downtown to celebrate Canada Day directly. Encourage people to go (for the first time since 2019) and don't be threatened or bullied by people who might try to confuse the party.
On Wednesday night, Ottawa police said police had arrested a man who was causing a turmoil in the Capitol. The man, who had also been nominated in Toronto with an unpaid decree, was returned there to appear in court.
Earlier Thursday, police announced that they had arrested a second person for violating bailout conditions for not entering Otawa.
That person's car was also confiscated.
The arrest followed what police described as an "operation" near Highway 417 and Anderson Road at the eastern end.
No further details were immediately available.
