The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) announced that some COVID-19 tickets against people, who allegedly breached public health orders, have been withdrawn in court. 

It represents about 100 people who have been ticketed for things like not wearing a mask, participating in peaceful protests, providing services during lockdown and not complying with public health guidelines.

They represent clients in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatoon and Ontario. So far, three tickets have been withdrawn by the Alberta provincial crown prosecutor and one by a municipal crown prosecutor. 

In a new video, the JCCF explained that people are continuously getting ticketed for exercising their Charter of Freedoms, particularly in Alberta where Crown prosecutors are handing out hefty fines.

In one instance, a man was ticketed $50 after attending an anti-lockdown protest without a mask, and another instance of a man getting ticketed $1200 after listening in on a protest rally have all been defended by the JCCF.

The JCCF announced that all COVID-related tickets issued to rally demonstrators in Alberta that they defended have been withdrawn by Crown Prosecutors before trial.
