Protesters from the so-called "freedom convoy" in Ottawa have torn down a fence that had been put around the National War Memorial to protect it from further desecration.

The fence was first erected after multiple incidents were reported in the early days of the demonstration, including protesters urinating on the site and dancing on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The people removing the fence appeared to be veterans. As they removed it, a police officer reportedly told the demonstrators that they're responsible for taking care of the memorial now, according to Global News' Abigail Bimman, who was on the ground at the time.
