Maxime Bernier arrested following rallies in Manitoba: RCMP

WINNIPEG – Manitoba RCMP has confirmed that Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada, has been arrested for violating public health regulations.

“Mr. Bernier knew the health regulations and has already received a ticket,” RCMP said in an email to CTV News. “The continuation of the Manitoba public health violation has resulted in his arrest.”

RCMP said he was arrested outside of St-Pierre-Jolys, where he was speaking on Friday. He also spoke in Niverville and was scheduled to make other appearances in the province throughout the weekend.

RCMP said he had been charged with violating a provision of the Public Health Act for gathering in an outdoor public place and not self-isolating when he arrived in Manitoba.

The Manitoba judiciary said a “Quebec individual” was arrested for failing to obey public health orders at gatherings in Niverville and St-Pierre-Jolys.

He was arrested to “prevent further crime”.

“Manitoba Justice thanks the RCMP for their continued partnership to ensure the safety of Manitobans at this critical time,” a Manitoba Justice spokesman said in an email to CTV News.

“Manitobans are reminded that enforcement officials continue to investigate all major gatherings and rallies that are brought to their attention.”

RCMP said Bernier would be brought before a judge.

The charges were not examined in court.
