A protester of the controversial Bala Falls hydro electric plant has been charged with mischief.
On Thursday, September 7th at 8am, Bracebridge OPP officers attended a construction site on Bala Falls Road in Muskoka Lakes Township to investigate a complaint about a woman who was allegedly interfering with the movement of construction equipment into the site.
As a result of their investigation, police have charged 58 year-old Peggy Peterson of Huntsville with Mischief, contrary to Section 430(1)(c) of the Criminal Code of Canada.
Peterson, who is known for her public opposition to the proposed plant, is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Bracebridge on October 3rd to answer to her charge.
