On April 20, 2021, I reported how a group of Canadians from Ontario along the American border used lights to send an SOS signal to America via Morris code calling for help against the province’s tyrannical overlords.
They also hung a Canadian flag upside down, an internation sign of distress.
After the introduction of a more stringent lockdown in Ontario, their message was simple, “We are hostages in our province now.”
Well, according to the Daily Wire, Niagara police just proved them right when they charged two of the people for calling for help. They are facing potential jail time of two years.
The Daily Wire explains:
Niagara Regional Police (NRPS) criminally charged two Ontario residents who organized a protest against their province’s strict lockdown measures last weekend, during which they hoisted an upside-down Canadian flag and used lights to issue a Morse code “SOS” signal toward the United States.
Cullen McDonald, 30, and Alicia Hirter, 43, were charged under Section 180(1)(a) of the Canadian Criminal Code, according to an NRPS press release released earlier this week.
“Every person is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than two years or is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction who commits a common nuisance and by doing so endangers the lives, safety, or health of the public,” the law says.

The police were undoubtedly just obeying orders.
