The record, made by the protesters who were with the activist in front of the Delta Hotel, Mr. Amaleka is arrested and shown driving towards the city police station in the city of Trois-Rivers.
“I just ask that the police not allow children to be vaccinated”, can you hear Mr. Amaleka say before getting into the vehicle?
The Sûreté du Québec (SQ), for its part, confirmed that a 43-year-old man had been arrested by Trois-Rivières police officers in the area around 1 p.m.
SQ spokesman Louis-Philippe BPU said the man was arrested for violating the condition and handed over to provincial police, although the identity of the man could not be confirmed because he could not be released before his release.
The arrested person is said to be in custody until he appears in Trois-Rivers court on Monday.
This is the second arrest in a few days for an anti-vaccine activist who was arrested on Friday for failing to comply with his conditions after trying to arrest Prime Minister Franois Legault during a trip to Shavinigan in Mauritius.
