Liberal MPP told to apologize to protester

TORONTO — A Liberal backbencher said he was sorry Tuesday after police were called on a mother of an autistic child who had threatened a solitary protest at his constituency office.

Bob Delaney’s apology – four days after police knocked on Melanie Palaypayon’s door – came only after Premier Kathleen Wynne spoke to him and called him into her office for a meeting.

There was no answer Tuesday morning at Delaney’s constituency office, but he issued a statement in the afternoon.

“I am profoundly sorry for the set of circumstances that resulted in the Peel Police visiting her home, and for the anxiety caused to her and her family,” Delaney wrote.
