CALGARY – The latest anti-lockdown protest in Alberta drew hundreds of protesters and counter-protesters to downtown Calgary on Saturday afternoon, exactly one week after a large-scale rally in Edmonton.

An estimated 400 people converged on Calgary's city hall to take part in – or oppose – the province's latest "Walk for Freedom" protest and march.

There was a heavy police presence separating the two sides. At one point, the groups confronted each other as police created a barricade using their bicycles.

Pastor Artur Pawlowski, one of the organizers and leaders of Alberta's anti-lockdown movement, spoke to the crowd while holding a lit tiki torch.
