On Monday, December 21, 2020 a
Freedom Rally was held at Millennium Park in Castlegar where between 60 and 80 people gathered to listen to speakers with messaging around COVID-19 related guidelines, measures and enacted laws.
Some people later relocated along the 2000 block of Columbia Avenue where they carried signs
displayed for passing vehicles and pedestrians.
For the most part, people who participated were calm, but they were in contravention of COVID-19 Related Measures Act. As a result of the current Provincial Health Order, individuals who choose to organize or attend this type gathering are in contravention of the COVID-19 Related Measures Act and can face fines between $230.00 and $2,300.00.
On Wednesday, December 23 2020, the organizer, a 58-year-old female from Winlaw, British Columbia, was issued a $2,300.00 Violation Ticket.
The public are being asked to ensure compliance of the British Columbia Public Health Order, specifically the COVID-19 Related Measures Act, and individuals who do not comply could face fines.
