Ottawa Police relied on dubious sources of information and made politically-biased statements in an internal intelligence report days before a massive policing failure caused the so-called "Freedom Convoy" to spiral out of control.

Evidence tabled Tuesday at the Public Order Emergency Commission show Ottawa Police expressing sympathy for protests against COVID-19 public health rules, mocking left-wing community activists and quoting from opinion columns by Rex Murphy in a January 25 intelligence report on the "Freedom Convoy."

The intelligence assessment, authored by Ottawa Police Sgt. Chris Kiez, describes the convoy as a "spontaneous grassroots protest" and expresses sympathy with the convoy and broader protests opposing COVID-19 public health rules.
