    meaning of an expression

    ''That same website notes that an ensuing uproar mainly from Italian-Canadians led the Tories to drop the plan within a month.''

    hi,

    in the sentence above, does the emboldened stretch mean something like ''the protests that took place afterwards''?
    how would a native say ''an emboldened stretch''? ''an emboldened segment''?

    thanks.

    The bold text means "an uproar (protest) that (ensued) built-up over time.
