Officers supporting Ottawa protest to be "dealt with accordingly," interim chief says

Global News in Canada shows that Ottawa's interim police chief Steve Bell said Tuesday that any officer who supports the ongoing protest in Ottawa against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions "has no place" in the police service and "will be dealt with accordingly."

Bell added that at this point no protesters have been charged with unlawful assembly, though some have been charged with other Criminal Code violations.

The interim chief also urged residents not to participate in counter-protests, stating he is worried about their "safety."

Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Trish Ferguson told members of the police services board that while the department welcomes the federal government’s enactment of the Emergencies Act, they are waiting for "official details" before enforcing it.
