Ontario’s Premier Doug Ford today threatened massive fines and imprisonment to all those in the Freedom Convoy who don’t pack up and go home:
Ford not only threatened fines, but also to take away commercial licenses:
“Fines for noncompliance will be severe with a maximum penalty of $100,000 and up to a year imprisonment. We will also provide additional authority to consider taking away the personal and commercial licenses of anyone who doesn’t comply with these orders.”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed a similar threat for those wanting to join the Freedom Convoy, saying they will be breaking laws and that could affect their job if they get arrested:
Prime Minister Trudeau warns protesters: "If you've joined the protest because you're tired of COVID, you now need to understand you are breaking laws," and that "the consequences are becoming more and more severe."
