The Whistle Stop diner has been officially issued a summons for breaching an order of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.

The diner in Mirror, Alberta — population 500 — opened last Thursday, defying the mod December order that closed all dine-in service. The Whistle Stop has been packed for morning til night, everyday, as people from all across the province have poured into the tiny cafe to support it.

And the police presence has been nearly constant with RCMP patrolling and collecting evidence on behalf of Alberta Health Services inspectors who have issued two closure orders to owner Chris Scott.

However Scott refuses to close his doors, even though he now has to appear in Stettler provincial court on April 22, 2021.

Rebel News will be providing Scott legal help to fight his charge in court, at no cost to him, through our largest civil liberties effort to date: www.FightTheFines.com.

If you'd like to show support to Chris Scott and other restaurant owners like him you are willing to defy the lockdown order, you can sign our petition to Premier Jason Kenney demanding the reopen of dining and service at www.SaveTheCafe.com.
