London, Ont. mayor slams hospital protests against pandemic-related restrictions
As dozens of demonstrators protesting vaccine passports began to arrive outside of London’s Victoria Hospital on Monday, the city’s mayor laid into those gathering during a virtual COVID-19 media briefing. “I say to those mindless mobs: how dare you? Leave our health professionals alone, because harassing them accomplishes nothing,” Ed Holder told reporters. A group calling itself Canadian Frontline Nurses organized what it dubbed “silent vigils” outside of hospitals across the country in response to public health restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19.
