On Saturday, April 17, 2021, at about 4:00 pm, a group of about 40 people gathered near Hanover Park on 7th Avenue in protest of the COVID-related provincial stay-at-home order and other health unit guidelines.

The group was peaceful and marched, many with signs, south on 7th Avenue, then east on 10th Street to Heritage Square where they stayed for about 15 minutes before returning to Hanover Park and dispersing. The rally was comprised of men and women of all ages along with a handful young adults and children. For the most part, the participants maintained social distancing but none were wearing face masks. 

Hanover Police monitored the group and currently have this matter under investigation. Charges are pending against the event organizers and others under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
