A protest erupted inside the Ontario legislative building on Tuesday as members of the provincial parliament debated a contentious budget plan.
Queen's Park security was called in to remove demonstrators gathered inside the legislature, CTV Toronto's Paul Bliss reported.
Shouts of ‘shame' could be heard coming from the legislature's viewing area before Speaker Dave Levac called for order.
The chanting protesters triggered a temporary recess as Ontario's lawmakers prepare to vote on the Liberal government's budget proposal. Tuesday's session has since resumed.
