Man, woman charged with disorderly conduct at Toronto Remembrance Day ceremony
TORONTO – A Mountie in red serge sprang into action at Toronto's Remembrance Day ceremony today, helping to apprehend a man who tried to disrupt the proceedings.
A man in military uniform was also seen helping lead the unidentified man away from the ceremony outside Old City Hall.
Toronto police say a 58-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman were taken into custody in two separate incidents.
Witnesses said the disruptions happened around the time Mayor Rob Ford took the podium. Shortly after Ford began speaking, a woman with a megaphone began shouting "Shame.''
She was overtaken by members of the crowd and escorted from the area by police.
Both the man and the woman were charged with disorderly conduct in a public place. The man has also been charged with public intoxication.
