GRAFTON MAN CHARGED AFTER REFUSING TO WEAR A MASK IN A BUISNESS

  2. Cause Disturbance – Contrary to Section 175(1)(a) of the Criminal Code of Canada
  3. Assault with Intent to Resist Arrest – Contrary to Section 270(1)(b) of the Criminal Code of Canada

The accused was released on an undertaking and summons with a future court date.
