James Topp is a 28-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, who in February of 2022 announced that he would be walking 4,293km across Canada, from the Terry Fox Statue in Vancouver to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa, to advocate for federal employees who have been denied employment or service based on their vaccination status, and for those who have been coerced into a medical procedure they would have otherwise rejected.
Our very own Drea Humprey spoke with James just over a month ago as he set off for his journey in British Columbia.
Since that time, he has made his way to southern Alberta, and he took one day off from his march to shuttle up to Calgary to speak to an impassioned crowd of protesters before returning south and continuing eastward.
Before James took the stage, I was fortunate to have him join me for a sit-down conversation about his motivations for embracing this immense challenge, his experience so far and the reception he has received while on the road.
While James is marching for Canadians' freedoms, the legal team at The Democracy Fund is taking their own stand against unCanadian vaccine mandates in Canada’s courts. You can make a tax receipt eligible donation at FightVaccinePassports.com that will keep lawyers across Canada hard at work challenging vaccines mandates and defending individual rights and freedoms.
