by

The executive director of the University of Toronto Students Union was arrested recently while participating in a blockade of a busy Toronto highway earlier this month, reports The Varsity.

Angela Regnier, a former national vice-chair of the Canadian Federation of Students, was arrested on Mother’s Day as she participated in the blockade of a major Toronto highway to protest against the actions of the Sri Lanka government during fighting against the Tamil Tigers.

Regnier is charged with mischief and “interference with property.”
