Why is there a difference between the two protests?

Why is there a difference between the two protests?

We have seen time and time again over the last 11 months, dramatic breaches on Canadian’s Charter right to protest. Numerous anti-lockdown protesters have been ticketed, and some arrested, for simply exercising that very right, as recently as February 13th, 2021 at Queen’s Park in Toronto.

However, on February 14th, 2021, Toronto City Counsellor Kristyn Wong Tam, lead a protest in the east end of Toronto. This group was protesting the destruction of a heritage building, and were (rightly so) left alone by police. They were exercising their right to protest.
On the other hand, when exercising that same protected Charter right, protesting the COVID lockdown measures have been met with hostile encounters with police, including ticketing and arrests.
Why is there a difference between the two protests? Both occurred during the current Stay-At-Home Order and both occurred in the same city.
Is it not the role of police to remain impartial? Why are police deciding what protests should be enforced and which should be left alone? Is this what it means to live in a free and democratic society?

We, at Police on Guard for Thee, recognize and uphold the guaranteed right to protest for ALL Canadians. Any and ALL protesters should be protected.

Kids Help Phone received more than twice the amount of calls in 2020 when compared to 2019

These statistics speak for themselves. Many cases of abuse and neglect are reported to police by schools and healthcare institutions because of the safe environment they create for young people. Limiting access to these necessary spaces cuts the line of communication between abuse victims and Police Services, inhibiting the victim from receiving the mental and physical help they need. This subjects young people to further abuse at home and leaves them to cope with limited resources.

Does it Pass the Oakes Test?

Does it Pass the Oakes Test?

Does it pass the Oakes test?
In section 1 of the Charter rests the limitation clause. This legally allows the government to limit a person’s charter rights, however it must be proven that this limitation is justified. This is done using the Oakes Test, which determines if the purpose of the restriction is demonstrably justifiable in a free and democratic society.
We implore all active duty officers who are enforcing current Public Health orders to do extensive research on the current “State of Emergency” and ask themselves, does the legislation I’m enforcing pass the Oakes test?
If you come to the conclusion that it does not, reach out and join our cause.

Thank you Lee Keane for joining in support of Police on Guard for Thee.
Lee served almost exclusively in uniform for 32+ years and retired as a constable. Lee was a Director of the Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada and advocated for members of the force, many of whom suffered from disabilities suffered during their service. Lee’s advocacy contributed to recognition of members of the RCMP’s right to collective bargaining by the Supreme Court of Canada.
Lee is greatly troubled by the identity politics that surround policing, such as “defunding” the police. Lee is a Christian, an immigrant, and proud of his service to his nation as a veteran. He is concerned for the nation’s freedom during the Government of Canada’s response to COVID-19. Specifically, he is concerned with the clearly unconstitutional and unlawful actions of provincial governments regarding enforcement of “public health” orders as well as clear violations of the Criminal Code of Canada, Section 176(1), which makes it a dual procedure offence to interfere with church services.
Peace officers have discretion as to whether they arrest or charge suspects as well as under provincial statutes they have prosecutorial discretion. Police officers must exercise their discretion and powers within the law, especially the supreme legislation, the constitution, or Canada will descend into dictatorship.

Similar to our letter, they express many concerns with their local Public Health Orders and pose a question to their fellow officers:
Can you stand by while the people’s rights are infringed? Have a read.
Across Canada, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the supreme law of the land and must be upheld by all law enforcement.
If you agree, #RememberYourOath and join our cause.

Guaranteed Right to Peacefully Protest

Guaranteed Right to Peacefully Protest

A kind reminder to all active duty officers that the legislation, upon which the Public Health orders are based, does not supersede any Charter Right (EMCPA 7.0.2).
Peaceful protests against government actions or institutions is a guaranteed right in Canada. We urge you to #RememberYourOath and not impede on people’s rights.
Arresting peaceful protestors not only erodes the foundation upon which this country is built but subjects law enforcement to civil liability, Police Services Act charges, and criminal charges. By protecting the Charter Rights of Canadian citizens, you also protect yourselves, we are one and the same.

Will History Repeat Itself? Remember when Toronto Police acknowledged Mass Arrests at G20 were unacceptable?

Will History Repeat Itself? Remember when Toronto Police acknowledged Mass Arrests at G20 were unacceptable?

A mere 10 years ago, the actions of the police at the G20 Summit in Toronto resulted in Superintendent Fenton being found guilty of misconduct. Many other officers were also convicted of offences under the Police Services Act.
How quickly we seem to have forgotten that unlawful actions by police officers can result in findings of guilt.
Yesterday’s arrests across downtown Toronto were not based on any lawful authority. For several weeks now we have been pointing out the fact the legislation upon which the Public Health orders are based does not supersede any Charter Right (EMCPA 7.0.2). Citizens still have the right to protest without intervention from the state.
While the new Stay-At-Home order, filed under the EMCPA, speaks to enforcement at large gatherings, it does not include protests. Peaceful protests are a guaranteed right in Canada. If the Province wants to infringe on that right they must invoke Section 33 of the Charter and acknowledge the restrictions they are placing on our fundamental freedoms. Instead, our government would rather keep law enforcement liable to the inevitable future court rulings.
Why omit the word “Protest” from the legislation? Because our government would rather direct police services to interpret the term “Large Gatherings” to include anything, including our protected right to protest.
Look at the wording in the most recent Toronto Police Press Releases. Why won’t they refer to these “large gatherings” as protests? Because they know Canadians have a Charter Right to protest.
Protesters were arrested for Common Nuisance. Refer to Canadian Criminal Code Section 180(1). Pay special attention to the definition of Common Nuisance Section 180(2)(b).
If we contrast the actions of police command and police officers from across Canada with the actions at G20, it is clear they are putting themselves in positions that could result in civil liability, Police Services Act charges, and criminal charges.

Toronto Police Service Twitter Post: Protests

Toronto Police Service Twitter Post: Protests

Disturbing videos have emerged of protesters being arrested and dispersed across downtown Toronto.
To be clear, protesting is a fundamental freedom guaranteed under our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The Reopening Ontario Act does not suspend the right to protest (see section 7.0.2 of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act).
#RememberYourOath
Very clearly the Toronto Police Service obstructed the public from exercising the fundamental right to protest. The Reopening Ontario Act must be in accordance with our Charter Rights. Back on June 6th, 2020, Toronto Police Operations sent out a tweet indicating that very point. “Everyone has the lawful right to peacefully protest.” No legislation has changed to supersede this right since that tweet.

Thank you Richard Courtemanche for joining in support of Police on Guard for Thee.
Police officers used to serve Canadians dutifully according to our Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I’ve never expected that there would come a time when altruistic leaders would wittingly or unwittingly compel officers to deviate from these Acts in order to carry out illegal and unconscionable orders.
Police forces must make it a priority to revamp their functions according to democratic principles, real law and order, and ensure new generations of officers perform accordingly. Our families, our children, our future generations will have to live with what we help creating and we won’t be able to say that we didn’t know.
Therefore, I am also standing firmly with my brothers and sisters and implore them to challenge any deviations to democracy, law and order, and to consider the part that the functions we represent are playing in relieving Canadians of their right to speech, religion, conscience, association, assembly, mobility and security of the person in accordance with the fundamental principles of justice. Remembering our oath, we work primarily for Canadian citizens. It is a very slippery slope that we are on. We love our country the way it was, not the way it’s leading.

Toronto Police Service News Release: Stay at Home Order

Toronto Police Service News Release: Stay at Home Order

As we demand answers from the courts, many of you are demanding answers of us, especially as the regulations change and another State of Emergency is declared in Ontario.
Here are important things to know:
– No law, legislation, or by-law can remove your Constitutional and Charter Rights unless the province or federal government enacts section 33 of the Charter or relies on section 1 of the Charter.
– As with all COVID-19 related legislation, your rights may be temporary suspended under the “Reasonable Limits Clause” (section 1) which would have to pass the “Oakes Test.”
– Under the present COVID-19 regulations, there is no authority for officers to arrest, commence warrantless entry, nor stop your motor vehicle for possible offences under the regulation.
– If police believe you committed an offence, you must identify yourself as with any police encounter, providing the officer clearly explains the offence you are committing. If possible record the encounter.

To all active duty officers and the public, read our extended piece, understand your authorities, and your rights. If you #RememberYourOath, join our cause.

Police crash 18th Birthday Party and Issue $1,300 fine, over 10-person gathering

Police crash 18th Birthday Party and Issue $1,300 fine, over 10-person gathering

Celebrating your 18th birthday with close friends is something most of us did to commemorate our coming of age in Canada. An 18 year old young man from Manitoba had a socially distanced indoor birthday party to celebrate his adulthood with a handful of his friends which was against the current provincial public health orders in that province. Police were allegedly called by an anonymous tipster and fined this young man almost $1,300 for celebrating inside his father’s private workshop.

Day after day and story after story, there are new examples of police across Canada being put in the difficult position of balancing the provincial public health mandates and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. No police officer from across this great country can feel good about issuing a $1,300 ticket to a young man simply celebrating his 18th birthday with some good friends.

Does the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which applies to all Federal and Provincial laws, and Municipal By-Laws, stand in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic?
It is safe to say that Canadians are in uncharted territory, and that includes our police.

After watching the events that transpired in a Scarborough parking lot on January 4th 2021 some important questions need to be asked.
Legality and constitutionality, while our primary focus, can no longer be the only way to assess our current situation. We now have to ask ourselves what is ethical and moral.
It is becoming abundantly clear that there is no end in sight. Time and time again we are seeing officers and the public being put in these situations.

I completed 11 years in the Laval Police Service in Québec. In 2020, during this crisis, I started noticing that the reality on the ground did not match what I was seeing on TV. I did not agree with the disrespect of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I had to resign so as not to be complicit in violating my oath and in order to protect the people of Québec. Since October 2020, I have rallied with the people and am fighting alongside to preserve my oath and their freedoms.
