Hamilton Police Provide Further Clarification to Arrest at Campaign Rally

Hamilton Police are providing further clarification related to the arrest of a 33-year-old individual for trespassing at John C. Munro International Airport on Thursday, May 26, 2022. 

In the original media release dated May 26, 2022, Hamilton Police implied that the individual was arrested when refusing to move off the roadway when directed. 

For greater clarity, the individual was denied entry to a Progressive Conservative Campaign event and was directed to leave the premises by an event representative. She was arrested for failing to comply with that request. Following her arrest, she was transported off the property and immediately released with a fine for Fail to Leave Premises When Directed, contrary to the Trespass to Property Act. 

All questions related to her invitation to attend the Progressive Conservative event should be directed to the event organizer. 

This matter is now registered with the court. Out of respect for the court processes, Hamilton Police will not be making any further comment.
