According to the provincial government, “fines for a summary conviction under the new directive will range from $3,000 to $10,000 for individuals and between $20,000 and $100,000 for a corporation.” Additionally, “outdoor gatherings of more than 20 people are prohibited under a Health Protection Act order.”
At the same time tens-of-thousands of Canadians are rallying for freedom in the nation’s capital city, Nova Scotia says citizens will obey the government or be arrested, fined and punished by provincial authorities for their noncompliance. Talk about a totally tone-deaf governing authority.
1. Government does something unpopular to a sizable percentage of the public.
2. Public organizes a protest; people join and assemble to express their displeasure.
3. Government cries out that the assembly is an insurrection and uses subterfuge and violence to punish the people.
Welcome to the 21st century.
