Canada's Anti-Lockdown Protests are a Ragtag Coalition of Anti-Vaccine Activists, Conspiracy Theorists and the Far-Right - 2020-05-08
A number of news reports have suggested the anti-lockdown protesters are mainly concerned about "the economy." The organizers of these protests have themselves claimed to be speaking out on behalf of "business owners."
Yet, even a casual glance at the signs appearing at these protests suggest it's inaccurate to claim "the economy" is the anti-lockdown protesters' main concern.
As previously reported by PressProgress, the protests were originally organized by a mysterious group calling itself "Free North Patriots," which appeared out of thin air on April 12 and immediately began promoting "peaceful protests."
