  1. This was “Not” an illegal gathering! Under the Charter of rights demonstrations are not illegal. These charges will end up being thrown out as they violate the Constitution

    • Wrong.

      The charges are about not wearing masks and not distancing. No tickets were issued to people that gathered there but kept their distance, so no violation of the charter.

  2. Ummm to preach to the tin foil crowd locally that follows him on Facebook like subservients . He becomes a folk hero to the lowlifes that congregate weekly!

    • so you are subservient to government and unelected health officials. Therefore we must assume “you” are a member of the tinfoil crowd

  3. why is this young man from southern Ontario organizing protests in our town?

    who is Frasier Keaney and why is he here?

    • He couldn’t get anyone to listen to him in southern Ontario so he came here.

      I especially like his “virus’s don’t actually exist” post.

      • Pretty sure lots of people must listen to him down south and that’s why we can’t get our daily case numbers down in the province lol.

  4. It’s a stock photo of a police car for a police story. It’s not a weather report. You are everything that is wrong with the world today and need to go play outside.
