One person has been arrested by police after an anti-vaccine protest at an Ontario politician’s home turned violent. For the second time in a week, the deputy premier of Ontario had her home targeted by noisy protesters late at night.

Christine Elliott has been the target of protests ever since a letter circulated through the anti-vaccine community claiming she wanted to put unvaccinated people in maximum security camps. The letter turned out to be fake. On Wednesday, protesters returned to Christine Elliott’s home. A clash broke out between the group and and a masked counter-protester, leading to an arrest.

Brian Lilley, a columnist for the Toronto Sun stated, “If you want to see how disgusting the anti-vax people are, they are outside the private home of Health Minister Christine Elliott, blocking her way in and screaming. They aren’t at Queen’s Park or an official residence, they are at her private home. These people are despicable.”
