David Freiheit, a.k.a Viva Frei, tells us why he hosted marathon livestreams in Ottawa, and gets into the nitty-gritty of the Emergencies Act and the anti-honk legal battles.
During the Freedom Convoy, Viva Frei was on the ground reporting and interviewing people, speaking with truck drivers and on-the-ground supporters. He was present during the three weeks of the main protest, and it was interesting to hear his opinion, legally speaking, about all the tactics and measures used by the government against the demonstration.
In this video, we discuss the seizure of bank accounts, cancellation of licence plates, the state of emergencies called in Ontario and Ottawa, and the use of the federal Emergencies Act.
Did you know a legal case is currently happening against some people involve with the Freedom Convoy, for the modest sum of $306-million? David gives us his thoughts on the legal side of the story, and his own opinion of how he perceived the Freedom Convoy.
“At Rebel News, we tell the other side of the story.
We follow the facts wherever they may lead — even if that conflicts with the official narrative of the establishment.
We fight for freedom of speech both for ourselves and for those with whom we disagree — that’s how freedom of speech works. We believe any and every idea ought to be open to criticism and debate. And we’re not afraid to champion people who have been forgotten by the establishment.”
