Charges dropped against former MP Derek Sloan and MPP Randy Hillier

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.

No More Lockdowns Rallies in Ontario, May 8-9

I appreciate everyone who came out to the many events last weekend, we know there were not many speakers, but you all still ran the show and kept spirits high. This weekend I got a lot on the table! New Local Action Groups are popping up every day, and more events are being planned…No More Lockdowns Canada needs your help more than ever to keep attendees feeling safe and welcomed.

If you visit their Official Facebook Page, under the ‘Groups’ tab you will find all the official groups No More Lockdowns Canada is working with. Additionally on the banner of any official groups will contain the message ‘Group by No More Lockdowns Canada’. Keep an eye open for these cues and do report any groups you find using their name and branding who are not listed by emailing

Last time I asked for support for veterans who attended the No More Lockdowns Canada rallies, we still need more. Sign up to become a No More Lockdowns Canada Forces for Freedom member. They want to work directly with liberty loving veterans to get them to tell their story and help create a barrier between their events and those who may seek to disrupt them. Please remember this sign up is for veterans only.

Don’t forget to follow them on Social Media, this is where you will see the most up to date news on openings and events in your local area! It also helps when you tag and share with your friends and family to break through the censorship on each of the social media platforms.


You can also join a Local Action Group, these are popping up across the province everyday helping businesses plan and reopen. If you would like to join or create one in your area, contact:

Do make sure you, your friends, and family are signed up to our emails as well. You can do so by requesting a lawn sign or by signing one of their petitions.
