Court injunction banning peaceful protests tramples Charter freedoms
It is frightening for Dr. Hinshaw and AHS to have secretly applied to prevent peaceful protests in Alberta. Secret hearings without notice, and the resulting oppressive court orders, are more consistent with the reign of Stalin than with a free and democratic society. By way of this injunction, AHS has succeeded in having the Court act as a police force, departing from the court's duty to protect citizens' Charter rights and freedoms.
Omitting relevant information from her affidavit, in order to portray COVID as an unusually deadly killer, is not telling the whole truth. This fails to meet the standard that is required when making a court application at a secret hearing, without notice to the other side.
