Quebec police arrest man for online threats linked to self-declared ‘queen of Canada’


MONTREAL – Police north of Montreal said they have arrested a 42-year-old man for allegedly making online threats in connection with his support for a woman claiming to be the Queen of Canada.

Police in Laval, Que., said today they are investigating after Radio Canada reported on Romana Didolo, a British Columbia woman who allegedly called on her supporters to kill medical professionals who vaccinate children against COVID-19.

In videos posted to YouTube, Didolo claims to be Queen and Commander in Chief of Canada, a role she says was given to her by the US military after the execution of Queen Elizabeth.

Laval Police say Didulo has more than 70,000 subscribers to the messaging app Telegram.

Police said the man they arrested made threats online in connection with the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at his child’s school. They say investigators questioned the suspect and released him.

The police did not reveal the man’s name because he has not been formally charged.

This report was first published by The Canadian Press on December 3, 2021.
