Pastor Andre Rose of Cornwall, Ontario, hosted a Passover dinner at his townhouse earlier this month. Five adults and two children were in the home. By all accounts it was a joyous affair.
But later on, a strange face appeared in the window. And seconds later, there was a knock at the door.
It was a Cornwall Police officer, and law enforcement had been (allegedly) tipped off by a neighbour that there were (gasp!) seven people in one house having dinner. And Rose was then presented with a ticket for $880 for violating the Wuhan virus protocols.
And yet, surely there were other homes in the townhouse complex that had this many people around a dinner table. But those families didn’t have to worry about a nosy neighbour dialing a snitch line.
In the final analysis, this was surely a breach of Rose’s charter rights — free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion.
