Man Trying To Arrest MPs Part Of Months-Long "Revolution" Encampment - 2020-09-28
Kidder is part of an encampment pitching a collection of tents across from the official office of the prime minister, on the grass near the war monument in Ottawa -- police allegedly told them they could not camp on the cement. While the protesters' primary grievance is with the ongoing lockdown measures, this camp has attracted a variety of figures from Canada's far-right and fringe figures.
Originally setting up on Canada Day, the group has dubbed itself Canadian Revolution, and while its website bills the group as a "leaderless resistance," it has a number of figures who have become central to spreading the message of the camp.
One of its primary evangelists is Cody Haller.
Haller has been with the camp since it first began and appears to be a follower of the QAnon conspiracy theory, posting quotes from the pseudonymous online prophet Q to his personal Facebook page, references to human trafficking and adrenochrome -- a chemical allegedly extracted from kidnapped children, -- and more topics regularly the focus of its adherents.
