A short while ago, police were handing out tickets with enormous fines to those who violated lockdown orders and encroached on social distancing regulations. But in recent protests against racism, it’s like the social distancing thing never happened, and Canada’s politicians are perfectly fine with that. This double standard is a dangerous rejection of the rule of law. We also discuss freedom of the press after Rebel Media reporter Keean Bexte gets tossed from a Trudeau press conference.
