“She has been spoken to, she has shown remorse for her actions and police are confident she will not reoffend,” a statement from the Ottawa Police Service said. “She was dealt with by other means, which is police practice.”

The woman, who has not been publicly identified, sparked outrage after the video was shared on social media in January. She was part of a larger gathering at the National War Memorial during the convoy.

The Royal Canadian Legion said at the time that it was “appalled and saddened by this blatant disrespect”.

Fences erected after the rally to secure the memorial site were dismantled by protesters.
