    Group of Ontario police officers launches charter challenge of pandemic restrictions

    A group of 19 Ontario police officers has launched a constitutional challenge against the provincial and federal governments and several police chiefs, claiming that enforcing sweeping pandemic health restrictions puts them at odds with their oath to uphold the charter.

    Fifteen active and four retired members of law enforcement agencies including the Toronto Police Service, York Regional Police Service, Ottawa Police Service, Niagara Regional Police Service, Hamilton Police Service and the RCMP are behind the civil action.

    It was filed in the Superior Court of Justice against the premier, the attorneys general of Canada and Ontario, as well as five police chiefs.

    The challenge has yet to be tested in court.

    It seeks these declarations:

    Canada's pandemic laws "are not rational" and have "no force or effect."
    Lockdowns, stay-at-home orders and curfews are "forms of martial law."
    Wearing masks, social distancing and lockdowns are "ineffective" and "not scientifically or medically based" because they're based on coronavirus cases the legal documents claim "are 96.5 per cent false."
    The group also wants the court to declare that religious gatherings and protests are exempt from pandemic restrictions in Ontario.

    The lawyer for the officers is Rocco Galati, executive director of the Toronto-based Constitutional Rights Centre. He didn't respond to a request for comment on Monday, but the legal challenge was detailed in a virtual news conference posted April 30 to YouTube.

    More @ link. Too bad there's only 19 of them in a province where there are north of 25,000 police officers
    What point in time are 'masks' going to start working?
