TORONTO—The short, stout woman bobs through the crowd like a hungry dog, jockeying for position at a dish of meat. She screams and yells, waving a plump finger in the air.
Every so often, she looks back behind her, in the direction of the cameraman recording her every move. The cameraman encourages her to get louder and get more aggressive. She does.
The woman is Diane Blain. She previously achieved infamy by refusing to let a Muslim near her. Today, she is with her friends in the Front Patriotique du Quebec to disrupt an event in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, where Justin Trudeau is speaking. She’s trying to get near Trudeau, who she hates.
