Hamilton Police Arrest Protester at Hamilton Airport

Hamilton Police have charged a 33-year-old female with trespassing after a protest at John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport.

On Thursday, May 26, 2022, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Premier Doug Ford attended the airport on a campaign stop. A protest subsequently formed outside the premises and eventually moved onto private property, blocking the road to the Cargojet facility. The protesters were asked to move off the roadway. All individuals complied but one individual refused to move and was arrested.

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

The protest continued to operate peacefully off private property for the remainder of the campaign rally.
