Two organizers, one other, arrested at anti-mask gatherings

Toronto Police arrested organizers of two separate large gatherings held at Nathan Philips Square and Yonge and Dundas Square on Saturday.

Police say they were criminally charged and noted the Jan. 12 Stay-At-Home order and second state of emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).

They said the arrests of the organizers were made under this order, “in addition to conducting continued enforcement of the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA).”

Police said Lamont Daigle, 49, was arrested at Nathan Phillips Square and charged with Common Nuisance.

Kelly Anne Farkus (Wolfe), 38, was arrested at Yonge Dundas Square and charged with Common Nuisance.

“The Toronto Police Service continues to respond to calls to attend large gatherings and will take steps to disperse. Police will issue tickets and summonses to individuals when there is evidence of non-compliance of the provincial order under the EMCPA or the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA).”

Police also later told reporters an officer was allegedly assaulted at Yonge-Dundas Square. They said a 22-year-old, Conor Chapell, was subsequently charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing police.
