The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has warned that Ottawa Police are breaking the law by attempting to intimidate or arrest people for bringing food and other supplies to the truckers and their supporters who are peacefully exercising their Charter rights and freedoms.
On February 6 at 11:52 a.m., Ottawa Police tweeted the following illicit message, suggesting that Canada's Charter rights are now being scrapped because of the "virus."
"Anyone attempting to bring material supports (gas, etc.) to the demonstrators could be subject to arrest," law enforcement threatened illegally. "Enforcement is underway."
Nicholas Wansbutter, a lawyer retained by the Justice Centre to represent the Freedom Convoy, called out Ottawa Police for tweeting this illicit threat, which violates Canada's Charter provisions.
"People who bring food, water, gasoline or other supplies to peacefully protesting truckers are not breaking any law," Wansbutter said. "There is no basis for this police threat, that was issued by Twitter this morning."
"In a free and democratic society that is governed by the rule of law, citizens can freely associate with each other, including the giving and receiving of goods and gifts. There is no law that would allow the Ottawa Police to arrest people for giving fuel or food to another Canadian."
It turns out that the truckers and their supporters, even in Canada, are fully protected by the Charter to exercise their freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assemble. They are legally entitled, Wansbutter says, to do all this under the law.
Law enforcement in Nova Scotia is attempting similar oppression tactics and protesters, many of whom are defying them by protesting anyway.
The government of Nova Scotia decided to prohibit the blocking and disrupting of traffic to and from certain highways, this being an unconstitutional order that LifeSiteNews' Celeste McGovern says "didn't deter anyone" from participating.
Hundreds of vehicles reportedly made a "slow roll" through the province into the capital of Halifax with no interference by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
"The Province issued a directive under the Emergency Management Act today, February 4, prohibiting protesters from blockading or disrupting traffic on any road, street or highway in Nova Scotia," reads the Nova Scotia government website.
"The new directive follows a similar one issued January 28 banning protesters from organizing a blockade of Highway 104i at the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border in support of the 2022 Freedom Convoy and the Atlantic Hold the Line event."
The government further threatened to fine individuals and corporations for failing to comply with its illicit directive, which will "remain in place for the duration of the provincial state of emergency."
According to the order, private citizens face fines of up to $10,000 for violating the directive, while businesses could be fined upwards of $100,000 for noncompliance. However, nobody received fines over the weekend because everyone stood in unity against the order.
More than 150 cars were seen protesting in Windsor in the Annapolis Valley. They drove 50 kilometers to Halifax and more cars joined them all along the way.
McGovern says that she is unsure exactly how many cars ended up joining the slow roll into downtown, but that "it was huge."
"Politicians and the police operate above the law," wrote someone at LifeSiteNews about the whole situation. "For some reason people are more than willing to tolerate it. These are the people they vote for to handle things."
