The man confronted the female nurse on Monday morning in the office of a pharmacy in the city of Sherbrooke, about 155 kilometres (96 miles) south-east of Montreal, where she was assigned to administer vaccines, a police spokesman, Martin Carrier, said by phone.
“Our suspect went directly into the office and began to yell at the nurse,” Carrier said.
The man appeared to be shocked that his wife was vaccinated at the pharmacy “without his authorization”, and hit the nurse in the face, Carrier added.
This is not ok. This is an assault on the Prime Minister of Canada. These actions are criminal, as defined by the Criminal Code of Canada, and need to be investigated and prosecuted as such.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said today he won’t let “the mob” control his campaign after he was sprayed with gravel during a raucous protest in London, Ont. yesterday.
“No one should be doing their jobs under the threat of violence or acts that put them in danger,” he said during a campaign stop in Montreal today.
“There are health care workers across the country who are getting hassled and intimidated and bullied as they are going in to work to keep people safe and alive. There are store clerks, waitresses, people going about their daily lives getting yelled at and pushed around for wearing masks, for being vaccinated. That’s not how we do things in Canada.”
