''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.
