Police have charged a 33-year-old woman with trespassing amid a protest at a Doug Ford rally at the Hamilton airport.

A Hamilton Police Service (HPS) spokesperson says the charge stems from an arrest made when a group of protesters gathered on private property blocking a thoroughfare to a Cargojet facility.

“The protesters were asked to move off the roadway. All individuals complied but one individual refused to move and was arrested,” HPS’ Jackie Penman said in a release.

“The individual was transported off the property and immediately released with a ticket for Trespass to Property.”

Penman went on to say the protest continued “peacefully” off of private property.
