CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

An environmental activist has signed a recognizance agreeing to keep the peace and stay away from the provincial legislature.

Daphnee Azoulay agreed to the recognizance in court Thursday after being charged with causing a disturbance.

Azoulay is a member of Extinction Rebellion P.E.I. – Affinity Group, which has been holding protests pushing governments to act on the climate crisis.

The disturbance charge stemmed from an incident in October when Azoulay showed up at the legislature with a copper drum while she was wearing a clown nose and a backpack with the words “kids want a future.’’

After the incident, Azoulay refused to leave the legislative assembly and the police removed her from the building.

The recognizance calls for Azoulay to keep the peace and to stay away for one year from the Coles Building, where the legislature sits.
