Charges withdrawn against Grassy Narrows supporters who dumped cornstarch at Queen's Park

 


Charges were withdrawn earlier this month against six people who launched a dramatic demonstration in support of Grassy Narrows First Nation at Queen's Park in June.

The group wore protective suits and dumped a barrel of grey sludge, labelled mercury kills, in front of the Ontario legislature. The substance turned out to be cornstarch.

Each of the demonstrators was charged with mischief over $5,000 and wearing a disguise with the intent to commit an indictable offence. Each of the charges carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The charges were dropped on December 7.
