Freedom advocacy groups have warned about convoys they are not affiliated with that are heading to Ontario, raising doubts about their stated intention of being peaceful in nature.
“Information received has led us to believe this may not be a peaceful protest,” said the groups Police on Guard, Veterans for Freedom, and Mama Bears in a joint statement issued on X (formerly Twitter). These groups have been involved in many of the protests in recent months around political and social issues.
“We will always support legal, peaceful protests, which is our fundamental right provided by our Charter,” they said. “We cannot nor will we support actions that aim to undermine our democratic and judicial process.”
