Remembrance Day Event In Toronto Results In 2 Arrests

Two people were arrested in separate incidents after trying to disrupt a Remembrance Day ceremony at Old City Hall in downtown Toronto.

A 55-year-old woman who began yelling into a megaphone during a speech by Mayor Rob Ford was arrested for breach of peace, but no charges were laid.

A 58-year-old man attempted to approach the mayor after his speech but was tackled by an RCMP officer wearing a red serge jacket. Two others, including a man wearing a military uniform, helped the officer drag the man away.

Toronto police Const. Tony Vella said the man was charged with public intoxication and issued a fine.

Josh Matlow, a Toronto city councillor, said the ceremony was to honour veterans and their families.

"That's the only reason anyone should have been at this event," he said.
