Dr Robert Strang is the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Nova Scotia. He said the purpose of banning social gatherings was to prevent the spread of misinformation. In other words, the purpose of his Orders was to suspend speech by the public.

A Canadian Office Holder (NS CMOH) seeks to prevent gatherings so people don't put others at risk by spreading (mis)information.
This is to be expected of Iran, China or my country of birth the Soviet Union. Canadians must condem this! 🇨🇦 #onpoli #nspoli #cdnpoli https://t.co/BNytW6C8Rh
“But I think the other purpose of the injunction is to, uh, is to, uh, prevent uh, you know, groups that are spreading, uh – deliberately spreading, uh, false information that… can actually create risk. The information itself if listened to creates risk to the public as well so, and…that certainly is a need to manage that misinformation campaign as well.”
The Nova Scotia Supreme Court overturned the Order, which Strang later said was enacted specifically to prevent people from protesting his mask mandates.
How is this action by public health officials different from North Korea or any other dictatorial tyrant?
(I posted this earlier then made it private for a bit – this item seems so over the top that I considered it might be satire or a parody. But it’s not. It appears to be real. I watched the video of Dr. Strang making his comments – from multiple sources – and it appears to be him in the video clip. These are the actions of a tyrant.)
