Anti-lockdown protesters gathered outside the Ontario Legislative Building on Wednesday to bang pots and pans in the name of ending COVID-19 restrictions. "It's a sitting day, lets make sure the politicians hear us outside" a Twitter post read. Around 150 people attended the event.
They then marched to City Hall amid calls for the city to re-open from its current lockdown.
"Noise is essential!" one participant declared.
The event occurs a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed support for striking farmers in India while here at home government-critical anti-lockdown participants and organizers alike are increasingly being arrested and fined.
When questioned about Trudeau’s statement on freedom of speech, one attendee, André, told The Post Millennial : "It's incredibly hypocritical, because they [Canadian government] want to say we're in favour of free speech, but it's always in other countries. He mentions nothing about the Adamson Barbecue incident, nothing about the people in churches in Manitoba, or even churches here that get hit with lockdown restrictions even if they're doing stuff in their own car, not even being indoors. It seems like the rights to free speech only exist in countries that have political agendas against their current government, but not in our own country."
The protestors said they will not be deterred, with many planning on joining the ongoing church protests in Ontario.
