Alberta sees record 1,731 new cases as anti-maskers rally in Calgary

DM

As Alberta reported a record-high 1,731 new cases of COVID-19 Saturday, approximately 1,000 people gathered in front of Calgary City Hall for a protest against masks and other public-health measures. Saturday’s anti-mask protest in Calgary was led by a group called Walk for Freedom, which said on social media it was rallying to “protect our Charter rights.” On Friday, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi called anti-mask rallies “illegal” due to provincial limits on outdoor gatherings. “Whether you agree or disagree, it is your right to assemble peacefully, however right now the law says you can only assemble in a group of 10.”
