Aggressive Liberal Canvassers Arrested ...

I wonder if this was anyone that we know ...... ???

Two campaigners for Windsor West Liberal candidate Larry Horwitz were arrested on Tuesday after they shoved pamphlets in the faces of people at a grocery store.

According to the police report, a store employee noticed one of the campaigners push a pamphlet so aggressively at a customer that the customer snatched it and threw it back. When store staff asked the campaigners to leave, they refused. "They said, 'No, I have a right to stay here,'" McNorton said.

Police were called - but even after the officers arrived, the campaigners didn't relent. Windsor police said the incident happened around 2:20 p.m. at the Zehrs store on Dougall Avenue. "They were inside the store, approaching customers with pamphlets, stopping them from doing their shopping," said Staff Sgt. Ed McNorton. [...]

Horwitz's campaign manager - who didn't want her name published - said the two individuals have been instructed that their behaviour wasn't acceptable. "During any kind of election, you get hundreds of different volunteers coming in that want to show their support for the candidate," she said. "Sometimes it's a balancing act between the enthusiasm and what's supposed to be done."

She said the two individuals now know that when people ask them to leave, they should leave immediately."
