A rally took place this past weekend, attracting close to 2,000 protesters from all over Western Canada.
The B.C. “Mega Freedom Rally” was hosted by the same handful of freedom focused groups that hosted the “Vancouver Freedom Rally 2020” that I covered in mid-September.
Concerned Canadians peacefully gathered in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery to unite in opposition to censorship and lockdowns, mask mandates and travel bans, while also listening to a variety of in-person and virtual speakers, including from American physician, Dr. Rashid Buttar, and highly censored former virologist, Judy Mikovits.
Protesters held a broad variety of signs expressing their concerns, while marching around the surrounding area chanting, singing and playing music. British Columbia COVID-19 related restrictions currently prohibit businesses from playing music, or other background sounds, any louder than what the government decides is above the volume of a “normal conversation.”
The protest began just two days before B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry declared that the province has officially entered what she considers to be the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Does this mean a second wave of lockdown restrictions is on the horizon? Only time will tell.
Such a move would directly contradict the recent advice from the World Health Organization, who suggested to world leaders they stop using lockdowns as a primary way to handle the pandemic.
Watch my full report on the B.C. “Mega Freedom Rally” to see why many Canadians are opposed to these increasingly tighter, more oppressive COVID-19 restrictions.
After a cancel culture mob of alarmists sounded the alarm on this protest in advance, Rebel News felt it was appropriate to hire two bodyguards to ensure both myself and my cameraman would be safe.
