Canadian Official Says Ban on In-Person Gatherings Is to Prevent Spread of ‘False Information’ — VIDEO

Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer Robert Strang: "The other purpose of the injunction is to prevent groups that are deliberately spreading false information"

The ban is to “manage the misinformation campaign”

An injunction outlawing in-person gatherings has a purpose other than just to prevent the spread of COVID-19, according to Nova Scotia’s chief medical doctor. If people are allowed to be together, they might “deliberately” spread “false information that creates risk.”

Recently in Nova Scotia, in-person gatherings and even the right to publicly protest were rendered illegal by an injunction issued on May 14. This primarily aimed at preventing gathering to protest continued lockdowns and masking regulations. The injunction also criminalized promoting protests on social media.

During a May 31, 2021 live-streamed video updating the public on the current COVID-19 restrictions, Premier Iain Rankin and Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Robert Strang, responded to various questions.

One telephone caller questioned the necessity for an injunction banning all in-person gatherings, saying, “I’m wondering about the injunction banning public gatherings and whether there really is a need for such a far-reaching one.”

Strang responded, “So I mean, I think it’s still there. We still have uh, the, uh, bringing large numbers of people together, uh, it can present some risk. We will continue to look at that.”

Stammering, he continued, “But I think the other purpose of the injunction is to, uh, is to, uh, prevent uh, you know, groups that are spreading, uh – deliberately spreading, uh, false information that… can actually create risk. The information itself if listened to creates risk to the public as well so, and…that certainly is a need to manage that misinformation campaign as well.”

MPP Roman Barber called this “a new low,” noting, “This is to be expected of Iran, China or my country of birth, the Soviet Union.”

The injunction was lifted June 22 after it was challenged in court. The Nova Scotia Supreme Court overturned the injunction, ruling that it was too broad as it was being applied to all social gatherings.

Nova Scotia is currently in the second of five “reopening” stages. The current regulations only permit indoor gatherings of 10 people and outdoor gatherings of 25.

    That was obvious when the whole scam started. Sad we need a video of some idiot telling us to believe it! Wow.

    Here’s the skinny…. They are outnumbered, probably 1000 to 1 or better. They know they cannot win in a battle so the idea is to prevent organization. Simple.

    The only thing keeping the powers safe at present is the ignorance of people that cannot discern truth from bullshit.

    They are both right and wrong.

    The far right is certainly taking advantage of Covid to spin their poison in the opposition media and alternative groups, and the CIA are giving them fall access to all platforms. But also a lot of what they say is true, covid certainly is a scam, but it is also a scam being used by the CIA to help the far-right get credibility which they always lack.

      Listening to some Commie Canadian cops arresting a preacher saying they were only doing their jobs.

      That was the defense of the Nazi’s at Nuremberg. That defense got them a snap of a rope.

      Exactly what those new age gestapo cops deserve.

        You have good intentions.
        But you got it wrong, it was a spin and it continues to be a spin…

      That’s a very instructive observation. Almost Biblical in its implications.

      FWIW, the totalitarian Corona Chan measures across Canada, especially the moves to inject all the children, seem to be outpacing the rest of Team America ®.
