Protesters arrested outside Munk Debate between Steve Bannon and David Frum

A melee ensued, and the police moved in, reported Toronto Star columnist Rosie DiManno, who was attending the event.

Video posted on social media showed officers outside the downtown venue using batons to hold back the crowd, and police tweeted that there had been “a number of arrests.”

Debate organizers explained the roughly half-hour delay by saying they anticipated protests and wanted to ensure everyone was safe.
