Mayor Gondek has not responded to the incident online or in-person.
Premier Jason Kenney took to Twitter Monday morning, condemning Sunday’s event calling it “just wrong.”
This is just wrong.
There are plenty of opportunities to protest without disturbing the families and neighbours of public officials.
This report also shows antivax protestors continuing to use signs comparing vaccines to the Holocaust. It is always wrong to trivialize the Shoah https://t.co/hbV9YOvC6f
