Freedom Convoy, Berger: “Tories free to participate”

OTTAWA – As Ottawa prepares for protests from the movement opposing Covid-19 restrictions over the weekend, interim Conservative leader Candice Bergen says her MPs are free to participate in the demonstrations. “I support peaceful and legal demonstrations, and if my MPs want to participate, they are free to do so, they will answer to their constituents,” Bergen said in an interview with CTV’s Question Period aired Sunday. “Conservatives fully support Canadians who were, and are still opposed to, mandatory vaccines,” the interim leader of the CP added.
