Police in London, Ontario have arrested a St. Thomas man after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was hit with gravel while stepping onto his campaign bus.
The incident happened Monday during a campaign stop in London, and was rebuked by Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.
Shane Marshall, 25, has been charged with assault with a weapon.
Marshall shares a name with the president of a nearby People’s Party riding association who was removed from the job after the incident. However, the party has not confirmed to the Canadian Press if they’re the same person.
