One other large “freedom rally” befell in Kelowna on Saturday
A group of Kelowna residents continue to oppose health restrictions imposed by the provincial government.
Hundreds returned to Stuart Park in the hope of being heard at a “freedom rally”.

Some of those present carried signs and Canadian flags.
One sign read “Peace, Love, Freedom” while another claimed that certain health officials were going to court.
It didn’t look like those present were wearing a mask.
Police officers were on hand to make sure the event was not causing any problems.
