Kawartha Lakes-Two protests against various COVID-19 measures were held in Kawartha Lakes over the weekend. One in Lindsay on Sunday drew approximately 250 people over a few hours with 120 at one time. They held signs that read “we believe in no lockdowns, no vax passports, nor forced vaccines”, “My kids, my choice”.
A smaller crowd of about two dozen took to the streets in Fenelon Falls on Saturday. Things got heated at one point with a passerby. An elderly man asked one of the protestors what they were doing. She replied “fighting for our right to choose”. He yelled in the woman’s face “The right to be stupid”. He declined an on-camera interview.
Another group of younger people were walking by when one of them spit on a chalk drawing on the pavement.
