NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Danny Glover, an American actor and rights activist, was fined $100 for trespassing during a labor rally in Canada, a report said.

Glover, 61, was in Niagara Falls, Ontario, showing support for union officials asking for higher wages and improved labor conditions for workers at North American hotels when he was accused of trespassing at the Sheraton on the Falls hotel in 2006, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Saturday.

Canadian Niagara Hotels reportedly asked for $22,000 to pay for the private prosecution of Glover and two other accused men.

It is reported that the justice of the peace said the proceeding was not needed and the company should have worked for better union negotiations.
