If the Quarantine Act states that a person with a medical exemption has the right to not wear a mask in public places without proving or disclosing the medical reason, should people be arrested and fined for not wearing masks?
Over the weekend, anti-lockdown activist Chris Sky went on live Instagram and told his audience to call the police and lawyer because he was allegedly getting arrested illegally. In the video, Sky claimed to be sitting in a car belonging to Rob Carbone, the leader of the Republican Party of Canada.
Officers from York Regional Police showed up at Sky’s home in King City to issue a notice to appear in court for shopping without a mask at a grocery store.
Sky was told to get out of the car by a police officer as he allegedly had a warrant for him. Sky asked the officers for their name and badge number; however, it is unclear if that was provided.
“Call my lawyer; everybody come to my house. Call 911,” said Sky.
At the end of the heated exchange between Sky and the officers, Sky wasn’t arrested. The police even blocked the street, preventing everyone from driving down the street to assist Sky as he asked his viewers to come to his house.
When INN24 reached out to him, he said, “They had no reason to be there, they had no right to be on my property. They had no warrant for my arrest. Basically, it was an illegal kidnapping. I will take all measures to have them investigated and have them held accountable for their actions because it was illegal,” Sky told INN24.
