Tensions and threats mounted after the restaurant’s owner’s son was found to be one of the masked protestors from Sunday’s incident. Which targetted Dorothy Marston as she tried to enter a Maxime Bernier event where the leader of the People’s Party of Canada was speaking. Marston was called ‘nazi scum’.
A video of the interaction between Marston and protestors has since gone viral online and sparking outrage. And while the restaurant owner apologized immediately, he said his son believed he was going to an anti-terrorism rally and said he “feels utmost regret” about not helping the elderly woman.
