TDF lawyers working hard to defend the rights and freedoms of protesters from across the nation.
Toronto: The Democracy Fund (TDF) lawyers are currently in court representing peaceful protesters who were criminally charged following the Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa and Windsor.
"We are attending court in Ottawa and Windsor on a daily basis,” says TDF lawyer Adam Blake-Gallipeau. “We are requesting disclosure to ensure that our clients have a fair trial and we are scheduling meetings with the provincial Crown in the coming weeks."
To date, the lawyers are providing representation to approximately 30 persons charged from these protests alone.
“We are dealing predominantly with charges of mischief and disobeying a court order or a combination of both. There are no charges of violence or threats of violence," says Blake-Gallipeau.
In addition to work related to the Freedom Convoy protests, TDF has been involved in defending criminal charges related to lockdown measures for months. TDF has and continues to represent dozens of persons criminally charged from British Columbia to New Brunswick.
TDF’s objective is to ensure that no peaceful protester goes undefended and that no Charter argument goes unexplored. To help support our legal cases, make a donation to TDF today.
