Sault Police Services Communications Manager Lincoln Louttit, spoke with SaultOnline about actions taken by attending officers during a protest this afternoon.
“There was a bit of a small, anti-lockdown protest, and there was a small altercation that took place,” said Louttit. “Officers spoke with the people on scene and did there investigation and there was no charges laid in terms of the altercation that took place.”
“Everybody that was there for the anti-lockdown protest was spoken to by police and educated about the restrictions under the current provincial orders and they ended up leaving the area shortly after.”
He referred to the press release yesterday, stating officers are choosing to educate people of infractions first before taking any actions such as issuing a ticket when it comes to the provincial emergency act that is currently in place.
