Global News published this video item, entitled “‘It’s despicable’: Reaction pours in after protesters target BC hospitals over ‘health freedom’” – below is their description.

The large demonstration for “health freedom” at Vancouver General Hospital and City Hall on Wednesday was “distressing” and “beyond the pale” for health workers, the head of Doctors of BC says.

Police estimated about 5,000 protesters at the event’s peak, with the crowd voicing opposition to COVID-19 protocols and vaccine mandates and causing traffic disruptions, including forcing ambulances to slow down. Similar protests occurred at hospitals around the province and across the country.

On the same day of the protests, B.C.’s fourth wave of the pandemic showed no signs of slowing down, as the province announced another 785 new cases and two deaths.

It brought the seven-day average for new cases to 697, the highest it has been in nearly four months.
