TORONTO — Three people were charged after incidents at Saturday protests in Toronto concerning the provincial lockdown and the Israel-Palestinian conflict, including a man accused of biting a police officer and another incident where a man was allegedly struck in the head with a wooden stick. The first charge was laid during an anti-COVID-19 lockdown march that began at Queen’s Park on Saturday afternoon and snaked its way through many downtown streets. Toronto police say more than 5,000 people attended the march between noon and 4 p.m. At one point, police allege a 24-year-old Mississauga man assaulted two police officers, biting one of them. He was arrested and charged with two counts of assaulting a peace officer and mischief…. After the gathering at the square, several videos circulating on social media showed several masked men, one with a Palestinian flag pinned to his back, attacking an older man with what appeared to be wooden sticks.
