Anti-fur protestors trigger Eaton Centre lockdown

BT Toronto | posted Monday, Aug 19th, 2019

Toronto police say a lockdown at the Eaton Centre near Yonge and Queen Streets has ended after an anti-fur protest reportedly took over a portion of the mall.

Officers were called by mall security, who had placed the shopping centre on lockdown, around 7 p.m. Sunday shortly before the mall closed after dozens of activists filled the skywalk bridge that connects the main building and Hudson’s Bay Company and Saks Fifth Avenue.

According to police, they were called to help “keep the peace,” and no injuries, damage or arrests have been reported at this time.

Some of the protesters who left the mall told City News they were heading to a local police station to file an official complaint.
