Anti-police organization calls for police to crush upcoming freedom events
TNC: Elie Cantin-Nantel: 'Horizon Ottawa, a progressive organization that lobbies for left-leaning municipal policies, is calling for a strong police response to upcoming freedom events in the nation’s capital – while also supporting the Defund the Police movement.
'Freedom events are planned next week in downtown Ottawa for the arrival of Canadian Armed Forces Veteran James Topp and in celebration of Canada Day. Organizers are also planning events on weekends throughout the summer...
'...Horizon Ottawa’s news release also said that the actions of freedom protesters “and the far-right politics they represent are a direct threat to our community and a broader threat to our safety and democracy.”
'While Horizon Ottawa is urging authorities to crack down on attendees of the freedom events, they are also very critical of the police and support the Defund the Police movement.'
