The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, a national, non-profit, non-partisan public interest law firm and registered charity, is announcing the establishment of a network of defence lawyers to assist any truckers peacefully protesting for freedom from covid restrictions and vaccine mandates. The Justice Centre has a team of lawyers on the ground in Ottawa.
Anyone who may be facing arrest, the confiscation of property or has criminal law related questions in relation to the Ottawa Freedom Convoy protest can speak to a lawyer at no charge.
The Justice Centre has prepared a legal tip sheet that may be helpful to peaceful protestors, that provides guidance for dealing with police and potentially facing charges or tickets.
To access the hotline, email firstname.lastname@example.org. In an urgent situation, please phone our legal hotline at 647-251-9710. We have a number of lawyers available providing their services at no charge, and offer services in English, French and Ojibwe.
This email address and hotline is only for protestors.
