Military veteran James Topp, who marched from Vancouver to Ottawa to protest against vaccine mandates, has pleaded guilty to two counts of prejudice to good order and discipline for speaking out against the mandates.

Mr. Topp underwent a court martial on Nov. 14 at the armoury of the Royal Westminster Regiment, a reserve unit in New Westminster, B.C., where he was last in service.

The former Warrant Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) spoke out publicly against the mandates around the time related protests were taking place across the country in the winter of 2022.

The Freedom Convoy was at the time blocking Ottawa streets and other protests were taking place at Canada-U.S. border points.

The military laid four charges against Mr. Topp, two of which were related to videos he posted online in which he wore the CAF dress uniform. The veteran criticized the mandates and called on Canadians to stand up against them.
