PM's wife interrupted by activist at cat video film fest

Student wants action on missing, murdered Aboriginal women

The Prime Minister's wife was interrupted by an activist Thursday as she opened a feline film fest.

Wearing a pair of black cat ears, Laureen Harper was introducing the "Just for Cats" Internet video festival at the TIFF Bell Light Box when Hailey King shouted out from the crowd.

King demanded Ottawa take action on missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

Harper initially continued her remarks before stopping and telling King that the night was about raising money for animals, earning applause from the crowd.

She then told King "that's a great cause but that's another night, tonight we're here for homeless cats.''

Harper is a cat foster-mom and the feline-starring event was raising money for the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies.

King says security forced her out of the theatre immediately after the interruption.
