Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Anti-mask protesters gather in Vancouver for “mega freedom rally”” – below is their description.
Several hundred people gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s north plaza on Sunday for the second day of an anti-mask “mega freedom rally” where attendees listened to speeches decrying what they called censorship, along with “lockdowns” and mask mandates, and expressed fears a COVID-19 vaccine would be made mandatory. Vladisav Sobolev, founder of the group “hugs over masks,” told Global News the event offered a forum for like-minded people to come together and get an “alternative perspective to the mainstream media.” Many people in the crowd espoused debunked myths that wearing a mask is harmful because it causes a person to breathe in carbon dioxide or bacteria or causes cancer.
