An official from the Canadian right-wing party People’s Party of Canada (PPC) has been banned from it, after he allegedly threw gravel at the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who is known for his liberal views.


Trudeau was pelted with stones as he was passing through a crowd of protesters who were objecting against vaccination from COVID. 

While the police investigation is still ongoing the People’s Party of Canada has already expelled Shane Marshal who is the president of the Party’s Elgin-Middlesex-London constituency association due to him allegedly throwing gravel and stones at the Prime Minister. 

Despite Canada having 74% of its adult population fully vaccinated, a new COVID wave is building up, which forced the Canadian Prime Minister to introduce vaccine mandates.

This move faced harsh criticism especially from the Canadian political right with the Conservative leader Erin O’Toole and Bernier opposing them.

O’Toole, however, condemned throwing stones at the Prime Minister and said that violence is not the key.

“This is disgusting and I condemn these actions in the strongest terms possible. Political violence is never justified and our media must be free from intimidation, harassment, and violence,” he said in a statement.
