Manure dumped at Premier Ford’s office

Toronto police say protesters dumped manure in front of Premier Doug Ford’s constituency office in Etobicoke on Sunday.

Extinction Rebellion, an environmental activist group, said in a press release the manure was a response to Ontario’s Auditor General “effectively declaring the Conservative provincial government climate action promise is a load of crap.”

Investigators say they responded to a call about the incident, but nobody’s filed a police report.

No charges have been laid.

A statement from the premier’s office says that if a response is what the protesters are looking for, they’re not getting one from Ford.

The statement wished the protesters a Merry Christmas and says the government hopes the protesters have a more productive new year.
