TORONTO (AP) — Police made several arrests as protesters delayed the start of a Toronto debate featuring former White House strategist Steve Bannon.

Toronto Police tweeted Friday there had been "a number of arrests" but no reported injuries. Bannon was interrupted by a protester during his opening statement of the Munk debate with conservative commentator David Frum.

The Canadian crowd laughed derisively at Bannon several times including when Bannon said he hasn't seen a bad decision by President Donald Trump yet.

When Bannon called it a tough crowd, one audience member responded "No, smart."

Bannon says next week's midterms are critical test of the movement but says they are just in the first inning of it. He believes the Republicans will hold the Senate but it will be a dogfight for the House.
