Charges dropped against former MP Derek Sloan and MPP Randy Hillier
Posted On: July 12, 2023FeaturedNews Releases
STRATFORD, ON: The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is pleased to announce that charges against Mr. Derek Sloan and Mr. Randy Hillier were dropped on Thursday, June 29, 2023. Both men allegedly attended a rally against Covid-19 lockdown measures in April 2021.
On April 8, 2021, the Ontario government declared a state of emergency over increasing cases of Covid-19. The government then implemented its most draconian measures yet by instituting an outdoor gathering ban which effectively made peaceful political protest illegal in Ontario. Mr. Sloan was a former MP, and Mr. Hillier was a sitting MPP at the time. Both believed that these lockdowns were harmful and attended these gatherings to protest the measures.
On April 25, 2021, there was a “No More Lockdowns” protest in Stratford, which the 2 men attended. At the time, the Ontario government’s regulations stated that zero persons were allowed to gather outdoors, which was a complete ban on the freedom of assembly. The Ontario government did this despite the fact most experts agree that spread of respiratory viruses at short duration, outdoor events are extremely limited. Mr. Sloan and Mr. Hillier each faced a maximum fine of $100,000 for attending this protest.
The prosecutor agreed to drop the charges in exchange for a modest charitable donation or volunteer work. Mr. Sloan made the charitable donation and Mr. Hillier volunteered at a food bank in Lanark County.
“The Ontario government’s lockdowns, which effectively banned any political protesting whatsoever, were a grave threat to our freedom in Canada. Restrictions may be over for now, but there was no indication how long they would last at the time. 2 weeks became 2 months which became almost 2 years of failed COVID policies.”, says Mr. Sloan. “I am proud to have stood against this tyranny with many other brave Canadians. The Stratford Prosecutor made the right choice, and it is now up to other prosecutors in other districts to drop these meaningless charges. One day, history, and the courts, will concur that these lockdowns were unwarranted and a serious and unnecessary interference with Canadian’s basic freedoms,” he continued.
Both Mr. Hillier and Mr. Sloan have similar outstanding charges in Ontario. Mr. Hillier has launched a Charter challenge against the lockdowns that banned all outdoor protests, and will argue that they were an unjustifiable infringement of his rights. The hearing is set for July 27-28, 2023.
Appeal from Derek Sloan Regarding the Emergency Inquiry
First, I would like to thank you again for all of your donations, your generosity to these freedom fighters is going a long way to help them continue to fight.
As the Emergency Inquiry continues – we have an exciting week ahead – with Tom Marazzo, Chris Barber, Danny Bulford, Brigitte Belton and Tamara Lich scheduled to testify. I’m certain their testimony will be riveting. etransfer : firstname.lastname@example.org Please use password – Freedom Today we want to broaden the net to raise some money for lost wages and living expenses for other Convoy heroes who are in Ottawa testifying and witnessing the proceedings.
Chris Barber, AKA Big Red, is one of the original founding members of the Freedom Convoy from Saskatchewan. He has been in Ottawa occurring expenses for the past few weeks.
Maggie Dingman is a mother who was arrested, driven 30 min away from downtown and dropped off in the snow without a working cell phone. She’s been suffering from PTSD as a result of the police pointing a rifle at her head.
Brigitte Belton is a hardworking trucker and one of the main organizers of the Convoy. Brigitte and Chris brought Tamara Lich into the original group and she began organizing the Freedom Convoy.
Chris Deering is an Afghanistan veteran and a Convoy leader. He was beaten by the police, and lost one of his medals that he was proudly wearing during his arrest. He lost a significant amount of wages during the period of his arrest, and is incurring further expenses right now in Ottawa during the Emergency Act inquiry.
Danny Bulford is a former RCMP sniper who worked on Justin Trudeau’s security detail. His stand for truth cost him his job, but gained him a lot of respect. He was a crucial part of Convoy operations.
And finally there’s Tamara Lich. She’s been arrested, denied bail, and re-arrested and denied bail again. The government has brought the hammer down on her – because she’s been the figurehead of the Convoy movement. They hope they can break her. I’m betting they won’t. etransfer: email@example.com Please use password – Freedom Please help support Tamara Lich, Chris Barber, Chris Deering, Maggie Dingman, Brigitte Belton, and Danny Bulford as they continue to fight for truth in Ottawa.
[The charges derailed Randy Hillier’s political career. He did not seek re-election. Sure, the charges are dropped, but the threat hung over him and the others for months. The charges and the long delay in dropping them were an ABUSE OF PROCESS, part of the State’s efforts to derail and smash pro-freedom dissent. — Paul Fromm]
Crown drops Covid charges against Derek Sloan, Randy Hillier, and other protestors
Posted On: September 26, 2022
NORFOLK, ONTARIO: The Justice Centre is pleased to announce that the Crown has dropped charges against former MPP Randy Hiller, former MP Derek Sloan, Pastor Heinrich Hildebrandt, and private citizen, Dan Stasko. The four men were allegedly involved in peaceful rallies against Covid measures in June 2021 and were charged with violating public health orders under the Reopening Ontario Act. After negotiations with
After negotiations with Bally Hundal, a lawyer retained by the Justice Centre, the Crown dropped all charges, stating that prosecution was no longer in the public interest.
Ontario has implemented lockdowns since the beginning of the pandemic and placed significant restrictions on the right to peaceful protest. In June 2021, the four men were charged for participating in a peaceful demonstration in Norfolk, Ontario. There were approximately 200-300 people at this outdoor demonstration against the Covid measures implemented by the Ontario government.
Mr. Hillier, Mr. Sloan, Pastor Hildebrandt and Mr. Stasko were concerned with the Covid restrictions – health orders which significantly curtailed the right to peaceful protest. For exercising their Charter rights to assemble peacefully and protest the government measures, they were charged with offences carrying potential fines of $100,000 to each individual as well as up to one year in prison.
“Peaceful demonstration is an essential pillar of a democratic society,” says Justice Centre lawyer Henna Parmar. “Citizens have the right to make their opinions known. We are pleased in this case to hear that the Crown will not proceed with prosecuting citizens who spoke out against harsh government lockdowns.”
Derek Sloan Speaks to World Wide Freedom Rally, Toronto, March 20, 2022
“It was a privilege and an honour to attend the World Wide Demonstration Freedom Rally in Toronto. I spoke to thousands of true Canadian freedom fighters, who have had enough with the bold faced tyranny in both our federal and provincial governments.” — Derek Sloan, former MP
I was thinking we’d leave Burlington station around Brant at 10:15am for a 10:31 departure. Great opportunity to feel normal by being with like minded, maskless we the fringe types.
Perhaps you’d like to stay more local, then there’s the Hamilton City Hall Weekly protest. Kill Bill 67 the Racist Woke CRT IndoctrinationThe Government of Ontario is dangerously close to sneaking in CRT/Race Marxism into our Education system. More here. UBI Bill S-233 a Financial DisasterCERB was the pilot and we are feeling the pain of this with skyrocketing debt, shameless printing of money and inflation. You couldn’t pick worse policies to destroy the country if you tried. More here. Take Action!We need to stop these Bills by letting our representatives know we are watching and we disapprove. Email them Now! My Vision for a Better CanadaFreedom and ProsperityI think the biggest priority is gaining back our rights and freedoms, for without it we will become Serfs once again. We need not only restore those human rights back, we must ensure this never happens again. I will be committed to making sure we get legislation in place to prevent this abuse of power and usurping of our freedoms and prosperity.
Stop InflationWe need to stop spending money that doesn’t help our economy or our culture and that is why I would roll back all Racist Woke Cancel Culture policies. We need to stop printing money for Racist Woke policies as inflation steals from everybody, especially middle to lower incomes. Only the elite profit while putting extreme pressure on those with fixed incomes and young families. We need a smart sustainable immigration plan, to repeal all carbon taxes, to exit the Paris accord and reduce all the friction that holds us back from being energy independent. Improve Education and HealthcareOur education system and health care is in shambles. At the Federal level you can’t directly make those policies but I would do what I could to encourage policies that would increase family doctors and healthcare workers in general, stop wasting money on Digital ID which should have been spent on health care and education instead of building more control mechanisms and bureaucracy around failed policies. Hospital beds, not Covid Camps.
Stronger Families, not Woke IndoctrinationWe need to strengthen our families and stop the attack on our faith and rights to practice our religion. We need to teach children how to think, not what to think. We need to fight back against the divisive un-Canadian Woke Marxism that pits one group against another, we had a very in your face taste of this tyranny as seen in the vitriol against the unvaccinated and freedom fighters. Men are men and women are women. There is no way we should allow men into women’s change rooms or washrooms as our little girls are in there and we have seen what happens when a male student pretending to be a female ie identifying as, sexually assaulted another female student in the washroom. Every policy is divisive and destroying our families and it has to stop. We are the Solution
We need to keep remembering to step out of our comfort zone, we need to engage people and we need to bring a friend to events. Last year we felt alone but we found each other. We have grown and made a difference as seen at our Burlington Rally with people from all over joining us and we got through to passers by with some staying and listening. Our voices are being heard more and more but we can’t let up. There is no one that will do it for us, it is each of us standing united that will win back our freedoms and prosperity.

Lawyers across Canada, LSO benchers sign declaration calling for end of vaccine passports, mandates
Wednesday, November 24, 2021 @ 4:01 PM | By Amanda JeromeShare Print Tweet Email A declaration calling for “the immediate end of vaccine passports and mandates” and a “public inquiry into the handling of all aspects of the declared pandemic” has been launched online, garnering signatures from over 31,000 citizens, including 250 lawyers, across the country.
“We are Canadian lawyers. In our country, civil liberties are under unprecedented attack. Governments, public health authorities, universities, public and private employers, municipalities, and businesses are trampling Canadians’ rights and freedoms. Our free society is at risk,” the Free North Declaration begins.
The declaration launched Nov. 12 by Bruce Pardy, professor of law at Queen’s University, along with Lisa Bildy, Stephen Penney, and Christopher Nunn, has also been signed by 10 Law Society of Ontario (LSO) benchers: Jorge Pineda, Ryan Alford, Murray Klippenstein, Alexander Wilkes, Joseph Chiummiento, Cecil Lyon, Scott Marshall, Cheryl Lean, Gary Graham and Jared Brown. It’s also been signed by Derek Sloan, former member of Parliament and leader of the True North Party of Canada.
Pardy told The Lawyer’s Daily that to date, the declaration has approximately 250 lawyer signatories and a little over 31,000 citizen endorsements.
According to the declaration, COVID-19 rules “restrict citizens’ abilities to work, shop, travel and socialize” and “erode civil liberties strategically, attempting to not run afoul of the law or to trigger protections in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms such as liberty and security of the person, the freedoms of association, assembly, expression, conscience, religion, and mobility rights.”
“Where Covid [sic] rules appear to have violated the Charter, courts have deferred to the state to take whatever measures it deems necessary, whether demonstrably justifiable or not,” the declaration added.
The declaration also claimed that “[I]n our system of law, no principle is more important than the right to control your own body and to make your own medical and health decisions.”
“An anxious populace, swept up in a deliberate campaign of fear, now believes that individual liberties upon which our liberal democracy is founded are dangerous and selfish. A growing collectivism that demands safety at the expense of autonomy shapes public policy,” the statement added.
The declaration noted that “[C]ourts have embraced the pandemic narrative, some taking judicial notice of the nature of risks of the virus and safety of vaccines to adults and children.”
“But the facts are anything but settled. Courts are supposed to be neutral. On Covid, as on any other contentious subject, their mandate is to find facts exclusively upon the evidence adduced by the parties in the courtroom. Instead, courts appear to have taken a side on Covid,” the declaration added, stressing that “[A]ccess to justice and the rule of law are now at risk.”
The statement goes on to explain that unvaccinated persons are “banned from juries, throwing into question the ability of all to obtain a fair trial heard by a jury of their peers.”
“Irrational policies born of panic affect no one more than disadvantaged communities who already suffer from lack of access to justice,” it continued.
The declaration further offered that COVID-19 vaccines “do not prevent people from becoming infected or from transmitting the virus to others, but only unvaccinated persons are banned or required to undergo testing.”
“People who have recovered from Covid and therefore have natural immunity are still subject to vaccination mandates even though the purpose of vaccination is to mimic natural immunity. Governments, public health authorities and employers advise that Covid vaccinations are safe, but pharmaceutical companies have been granted immunity from liability and no employers will accept legal responsibility for side-effects or adverse events, whether minor or serious, suffered by their employees who take a vaccine that they do not want,” the declaration added, noting that the “risks posed by Covid vaccines may be in dispute, but they are not zero. Particularly for children and healthy young adults, they may be riskier than the virus.”
“We fear the erosion of our free society,” the statement expressed.
“We question the single-minded fixation on a virus that poses little risk to most people. We protest the uncalculated harms that Covid policies are causing to people’s health, livelihoods, relationships, and mental states. We oppose the mass hysteria and anxiety that governments and the media are fuelling. Most of all, we object to the deterioration of our civil liberties and the failure of our legal institutions — legislatures, governments, administrative bodies, and courts — to protect them,” it added.
The declaration concluded by calling for “the immediate end of vaccine passports and mandates.”
“We propose a public inquiry into the handling of all aspects of the declared pandemic,” the statement added, noting that “Canadians should have control of their own lives and have the right to make their own decisions about their health, medical treatments, personal information, travels, and associations.”
Independent MP Derek Sloan holds a news conference on Parliament Hill to raise concerns about the censorship of doctors and scientists as well as medical information related to vaccines. The Ontario MP has been highly critical of lockdowns that have been in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and also sponsored a petition questioning the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. He is joined by a trio of doctors and scientists.
The Liberal government’s internet regulation Bill C-10 has been put on hold after the Senate rose for the summer before voting on the controversial bill.
On Tuesday, the Senate decided to rise for the summer break, immediately halting all outstanding legislation which had not been passed.
If an election is called before Bill C-10 is reintroduced, the bill will die and a future government would have to introduce it again.
Bill C-10 passed its third reading in the House of Commons Tuesday morning by a vote of 196 to 112: only the Conservatives and independents Jody Wilson-Raybould and Derek Sloan opposed it.
If passed, Bill C-10 would have significant implications on internet freedom, as the bill gives the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) unprecedented power to regulate online publishers, including social media users.
Despite the Liberals’ efforts to push C-10 into law, the upper house refused to speed up the process. Both progressive and Conservative senators offered various criticisms of C-10, many saying they would not vote in favour. https://www.youtube.com/embed/h0RY7403WoU?feature=oembed
On Tuesday, Senator Pamela Wallin pledged to stall C-10 until the summer recess could be called, saying the upper house is not obligated to pass government legislation without proper debate.
“The government has had six years to pass legislation it wants. It is not our job in the Senate to rubber stamp and give up our constitutional responsibilities just because they want fodder for an election- especially if it means killing free speech,” she said.
Conservative Senator Leo Housakos told CBC that the Senate had no interest in rushing through a bill which, in his opinion, gives unlimited power to a government body to control the content Canadians can see online.
“The core problem with this bill is that it takes the regulatory tools designated for a small, fixed number of licensed TV and radio stations in the 1990s and attempts to apply it to the vast universe of the internet in the 2020s,” he said.
“In doing so, it gives the CRTC an unprecedented delegation of power with no clear framework or definitions as to how it will be used. This lack of clear limits on what can be regulated is a fundamental problem with this bill.” https://www.youtube.com/embed/ej5pn1a4Q5s?feature=oembed

This is criminal. What is Doug Ford doing ???? He should be held responsible for all the lockdowns, fake numbers of deaths and people in hospitals and pressuring doctors and nurses to comply with this evil agenda. NVP
What will it take to turn the tide ? those brave Canadian Politicians and Doctors that fight for our rights, fairness and truth need our support. How can we expect that after being told “fake covid propaganda news” for 18 Months that our Politicians and the MSM will ever retract on anything they have been brainwashing us with? When a few days ago US Senators had the courage to expose the “lies” and hold the ones responsible for the Covid Nightmare accountable, there was hope that maybe Canada would have enough politicians that would have the courage to do the same, instead anyone that speaks against the “planned agenda” is demonized, ridiculed, fined and fired from their job………..what kind of world do we live in ? forcing everyone to take the “Jab” demonizing anyone that does not want to be a “lab rat”.
