Charges dropped against former MP Derek Sloan and MPP Randy Hillier

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.  

Does expressing your Charter rights make you a criminal in Canada?

Dear friends of freedom,

Where were you April 8, 2021? If you were in Ontario, your government said you must be at home, and nowhere else, unless you qualified to leave your home for a few select government-approved purposes. Even a peaceful outdoor protest with just five people was completely illegal from April 8 to June 2, 2021. This was not unlike the conditions courts impose on criminals when placed under house arrest.  
There was no medical or scientific justification for placing 14 million Ontarians under house arrest. The government was engaging in fear-mongering, and blatantly violating Charter rights and freedoms.
Support us today!
The vast majority of politicians went along with this tragic government overreach, even supported it enthusiastically. Former Ontario MPP Randy Hillier did not. Rather, he, along with other principled and brave Ontarians participated in safe, peaceful outdoor protests to challenge the government’s narrative, and to speak out against these egregious violations. 

Mr. Hillier was then charged under the Reopening Ontario Act and threatened with a $100,000 fine and a year in prison. He was also charged with hosting a public event where attendance exceeded the number permitted under an Order, for which the minimum penalty is $10,000.
The Justice Centre is proud to be defending Mr. Hillier, and in turn, all Ontarians who endured and resisted the unscientific and unjust political edicts of 2020-2022, by challenging the constitutionality of Ontario’s public health orders. While we’ve already seen charge after charge withdrawn in the face of our legal defense, the government has not admitted that its prohibition on outdoor protests was unconstitutional (like the BC government did when we sued it for prohibiting protests).
On Thursday and Friday this week, July 27-28, 2023 (livestream details below), our lawyers will be in court on behalf of Randy Hillier seeking to have Ontario’s prohibition on outdoor protests declared unconstitutional. 

Such a ruling would stop all other prosecutions under the Reopening Ontario Act.

Prosecutors can then re-focus and go after real criminals, as they should. Furthermore, a court victory will serve as a precedent against the government imposing house arrest on its honest citizens again.
Dr. Kevin Bardosh is one of three experts testifying for us in this case. Dr. Bardosh, a professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Washington with extensive medical credentials, provided the court with a compelling comprehensive expert report about lockdown harms. Based on a large volume of evidence, the report concludes that the government’s Covid-19 restrictions “cause excessive and needless harm to the mental health, physical health and well being of Canadians” which will have “long-term, negative consequences on the future of Canadians society.” It is clear that lockdowns destroyed businesses, prevented children from attending school, damaged people’s mental health, and caused a huge rise in addictions. 
We cannot allow governments to take us back to April 8, 2021

Crown drops Covid charges against Derek Sloan, Randy Hillier, and other protestors

[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.”

Twitter Censorship & Political Thought Control: Twitter Suspends Account Belonging to Ontario MPP Randy Hillier

Twitter Suspends Account Belonging to Ontario MPP Randy Hillier by Miriam Katawazi, CTV News Toronto – March 8, 2022

Ontario independent MPP Randy Hillier has been suspended from Twitter on Tuesday after months of speaking out against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and other public health measures. The news comes after Ottawa police recently revealed they were investigating the MPP’s Twitter activity due to comments related to the so-called “Freedom Convoy” protests in the capital city.

In messages to CTV News Toronto, the Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston MPP said the social media platform suspended his account because he “stated the truth.”

“I erred and stated a fact which Twitter found offensive,” he said on Tuesday, adding that his comments were in regards to the court-ordered Pfizer documents released last week about deaths due to vaccination.

In a statement to CTV News Toronto, Twitter Canada confirmed that the account was permanently suspended for “violating our COVID-19 misleading information policy.”

On their website, Twitter states that they suspend accounts that violate their rules, which are meant to ensure “all people can participate in public conversations freely and safely.”

The MPP has faced backlash in the past over his comments and behaviour on social media.

In February, the Ontario legislature passed a motion that Hillier wouldn’t be recognized by the Speaker until he apologized for his conduct on social media.

The MPP has made racist and discriminatory social media statements about federal Transport Minister Omar Alghabra, and also allegedly wrote posts that were insinuating a call to violence.

In addition, while the convoy protests were being dispersed in late February, Hillier reportedly called for his followers on Twitter to “keep calling” emergency phone lines in Ottawa despite police urging people to stop.

In November last year, Hillier also apologized for a post in which he used names and photos of people who had passed away to suggest without evidence that they had died due to COVID-19 vaccination.

“I’m Barred from The Legislature for 90 Days” — Belinda Karahalios

Following my recovery from COVID-19, I was looking forward to returning to Queens Park this week to continue holding the Ford PCs to account.

But thanks to the Speaker, PC MPP Ted Arnott, I am unable to attend the legislature this week and for a full 90-days …

… because I recovered from COVID-19!

In October, the Speaker implemented a rule that every Member of Provincial Parliament had to either use a COVID-19 vaccine passport, or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, to enter Queens Park.

I refuse the COVID-19 passport requirements.

So, to do the job I was elected to do – the job that taxpayers pay me to do – I have been taking rapid antigen tests for COVID-19, as have a few other MPPs.

On November 17th, my test returned a positive result for COVID-19. 

After a couple of days of illness, I recovered, but I was not permitted to enter the legislature for the rest of that week or last week.  I couldn’t participate in legislative matters during that time (like voting against Motion 8) as there is no virtual participation option provincially for MPPs as there is federally for MPs.

According to Public Health, my “quarantine” was over yesterday and I would “not [be] required to provide proof of a negative test result in order to return to work / activities.” 

Public Health was clear that someone in my position, who has recovered from COVID-19, should be permitted to go back to work.  Public Health’s position is that rapid antigen tests are unreliable in the 90-day period following recovery from COVID-19 and it is extremely unlikely that someone would catch and transmit COVID-19 in the 90-day period following such recovery. 

But that isn’t good enough for the Ford PCs and their legislative Speaker who have a different set of rules, different than even Public Health.

The Speaker’s position is that since I cannot take a rapid antigen test for 90-days after a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, and since taking a rapid antigen test or adhering to COVID-19 vaccine passport requirements, are the two conditions for entry into Queens Park, I would not be permitted entry for 90-days.

So, for 90-days following my COVID-19 diagnosis, I am barred from entering Queens Park.  [Note: Randy Hillier falsely claims that he too is barred from entering Queens Park, but he is not.  Randy’s just using a false claim as an excuse to hide his deal with the Ford PCs which includes getting rewarded for skipping work for more than a year.  You can read more about the real reason Randy skips work by clicking here and you can read more on Randy’s deal with the Ford PCs by clicking here.]

The decision by the Speaker, like most of the decisions by the Ford PCs, defies logic.  With natural immunity, I am less likely to catch or transmit COVID-19 than any other individual, vaccinated or otherwise.

I feel for the thousands of Ontarians who have lost their jobs or educations as a result of similar illogical decisions.

We should be focusing our efforts on effective treatment for COVID-19. 

Instead, the Ford PCs and certain “experts” are intent on punishing Ontarians.

We continue to build the New Blue Party of Ontario to counter the illogical left-wing authoritarian policies of the PCs, Liberals and NDP.

That is what we have done, and with your help, what we will continue to do.

Our candidate application will soon be available as we continue to get ready for the June 2022 election. 

There are only four weeks left to make a contribution to the New Blue Ontario Fund and receive a generous political tax credit of up to 75%.  Please consider the New Blue Party in your annual giving plans.

It is time to stand on principle. 

Thank you for your continued support.

God bless,

Belinda Karahalios
New Blue Party of Ontario

Peterborough police won’t ticket cast & crew of CBC show for handshakes, laughter

Peterborough police won’t ticket cast & crew of CBC show for handshakes, laughter


We recently returned to the lovely little city of Peterborough, Ont., where the local constabulary take a very dim view of any sort of merriment in this day and age of COVID-19. You might recall our previous trip to Peterborough in April. We were there to cover an anti-lockdown protest staged at Confederation Square.

Shamefully, speakers such as PPC leader Maxime Bernier and Ontario MPP Randy Hillier were issued tickets by the Peterborough cops for… well, um, that’s a very good question. Last time we checked, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly were still enshrined rights in Canada — even during a pandemic. Heck, just ask the Peterborough police, whose members took a knee at this very same square last summer in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

Yes, it’s all so very confusing, isn’t it?

And get this: several weeks after the Peterborough anti-lockdown event, I was served with a summons at my personal residence. Which is odd, given that I was not an organizer nor a speaker nor even an attendee. I was just there as a journalist covering the proceedings, and again, last time I checked, freedom of the press was still a thing in Canada — even during a pandemic.

But things went from odd to downright bat-shite surreal when I was later served disclosure, where the “evidence” of my crimes was duly noted. Which is to say, Staff Sgt. Dan Maclean noted that I had been spotted “shaking hands” and — wait for it — “laughing” on several occasions. Heck, Staff Sgt. Maclean even provided photographic evidence of my hand-shaking and laughing crimes against humanity. He even submitted my driving abstract.

Did you know, folks, that back in 1981 I was nabbed for doing 60 km/h in a 50 km/h zone? Oh, the humanity!

In any event, we thought we would drop by to check out the filming of a Murdoch Mysteries episode in Peterborough.

Alas, given that this is a CBC show, I’ve never seen a single episode, but I’m told that it takes place in Toronto in the 1890s. Ah, the 1890s! A time when shops were actually open in good ol’ Hogtown and a patron could enter such shops without having to don a face-diaper.

Anyway, we have it on good authority that the script called for some of the actors to actually shake hands. And laugh. And we certainly saw outbursts of laughter by the crew members on site — along with a few raised middle fingers aimed at me and my cameraman, Syd. All of which is very odd, given that Murdoch Mysteries is a CBC production, which means Syd and I and millions of other Canadians are involuntarily funding this show via our tax dollars. So, when you think of it, we are actually stakeholders, not interlopers. But I digress…

In any event, we felt it was our civic duty to reimagine ourselves as a couple of COVID-Karens and rat out this production to the cops. I mean, hand-shaking? Laughing? That’s super-spreader stuff according to the Peterborough Police Service, isn’t it?

But alas, the Peterborough cops would not come to the set to issue tickets or even investigate. Gee, maybe they’re fans of Murdoch Mysteries? It is a show about law enforcement, after all…

Bottom line: yet again, when it comes to COVID crimes, it would appear that it is one law for thee, one law for me.

Golly, just where is Detective William Murdoch of the Toronto Constabulary when you really need him?

MP Derek Sloan Raises Concerns About Censorship of Doctors and Scientists

MP Derek Sloan Raises Concerns About Censorship of Doctors and Scientists

June 17, 2021 Duration of video is 38 minutes  

Independent MP Derek Sloan holds a news conference on Parliament Hill to raise concerns about the alleged censorship of doctors and scientists as well as medical information related to vaccines. The Ontario MP has been 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 trio of doctors and scientists.   COMMENTS   He is not the only one – Randy Hillier and others are doing this for months, but it’s great news that politicians are waking up. 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”.
