In the video Diane Blain could be seen heckling the Prime Minister about his plan on illegal border crossings into Quebec, and whether tax payers will be compensated for the costs they incur.
Soon after, Blain was approached by two officers who grab her arm and pull her away from the crowd to be questioned. The incident was caught on camera by a man recording.
After the incident, reports circulated that Diane Blain was involved with the Quebec far-right nationalist group “Storm Alliance”.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Diane Blain to cover her legal fees in the incident.
As of now, there has been no response from Justin Trudeau’s lawyers or the prime minister himself.
