The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has warned that Ottawa Police are breaking the law by attempting to intimidate or arrest people for bringing food and other supplies to the truckers and their supporters who are peacefully exercising their Charter rights and freedoms.
“Anyone attempting to bring material supports (gas, etc.) to the demonstrators could be subject to arrest,” law enforcement threatened illegally. “Enforcement is underway.”
Nicholas Wansbutter, a lawyer retained by the Justice Centre to represent the Freedom Convoy, called out Ottawa Police for tweeting this illicit threat, which violates Canada’s Charter provisions.
It turns out that the truckers and their supporters, even in Canada, are fully protected by the Charter to exercise their freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assemble. They are legally entitled, Wansbutter says, to do all this under the law.Ottawa police ban bringing supplies to trucker Freedom Convoy – no soup for you!
