Multiple fines dropped against Coutts truckers

Fourteen truckers were charged with a law that did not apply to their alleged conduct.

CALGARY: The Democracy Fund (TDF) is pleased to announce that charges have been withdrawn against fourteen truckers involved in the Freedom Convoy protests at Coutts, Alberta. The truckers, who were all charged with parking violations, were exonerated after TDF’s lawyer pointed out that the law in question did not apply to vehicles parked in an urban area.

The truckers were part of Trucker Law, a TDF project that provided free legal defence for peaceful protestors of the Freedom Convoy. They were represented by Sean Mihalcheon of Williamson Law.

While this victory for freedom is a cause for celebration, there are many court battles left to fight. TDF continues to defend the rights of peaceful protesters charged with criminal and provincial offences across the country.
