There are more indications that those who oppose wearing masks are prepared to go further than just holding protests in front of public buildings.
In fact, there may be plans afoot to even interfere with efforts to get vaccines to people whose lives will be at risk if they contract COVID-19.
Kevin Annett, a former United Church minister, calls himself a "special adviser in common law" to the Republic of Kanata.
People who support this so-called "sovereign nation" believe that it has broken free from the British monarchy and its system of Crown law.
And Annett recently revealed that "sheriffs" of the Republic of Kanata were going to meet in Vancouver at the end of November to discuss how to prevent COVID-19 immunizations.
According to Annett, these sheriffs "are talking openly about trashing these vaccines".
"We are not going to let these vaccines—vaccinations—be distributed," Annett says in the video below. "We're going to stop it from happening."
On September 8, the Republic of Kanata announced on its website that a "council of citizens' assemblies...struck down and criminalized all COVID measures requiring masking, distancing, quarantining, and vaccines".
"Under the new Public Safety Law...any attempt to impose such measures on Canadians is considered a punishable crime and can result in the arrest and trial of the offender, regardless of their office. Canadians are encouraged to actively resist COVID measures, relying on the new law and local Common Law Sheriffs," the website states.
This is Annett's justification for advocating immediate action.
"Like, a leaflet or even our September 8th law is not going to protect you," he said. "Okay, we have to start physically making these plans. I would urge people to start thinking along those lines. How can you start doing that?"
The United Church fired Annett in 1995 after he alleged it was part of a cover-up of a genocidal campaign against Indigenous people. He who went on to found an "international tribunal into crimes of church and state".
Activists involved in this initiative indicted 30 people whom they had named as defendants, including Pope Benedict XVI and Queen Elizabeth.
Military deeply involved in vaccine logistics
Perhaps the actions of the antimaskers help explain why senior military commanders are playing a major role in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.
According to a November 27 Government of Canada news release, Maj.-Gen. Dany Fortin will oversee logistics.
He has "extensive experience leading complex operations". That includes overseeing the stand-up of the NATO mission in Iraq in 2018.
Brig.-Gen. Simon Bernard and Brig.-Gen. Kirta Brodie are also helping the Public Health Agency of Canada with logistics.
Meanwhile, Annett has also urged direct action to dismantle 5G towers, which he feels are a threat to human health.
"Collective self-defence—that's part of what we have to do," he said in the video below.
Annett emphasized that the measures should be taken with as little violence as possible.
'You want to create these dramas where people learn."
Others want mayors arrested
Common-law ideology appears to be catching on in Canada's antimask movement.
In the first video below, the cofounder of Hugs Over Masks, a man identified as Colin, says that petitions don't work and that lawsuits take money and too much time.
"So it's evident that the police are not willing to uphold their oath, and it's time for us to stand up and take that power ourselves," he adds. "It is our legal, moral and civic responsibility to do so, because if they are not willing to safeguard our fundamental rights and freedoms, we must."
In response, another leader of Hugs Over Masks, Dan Oke, speaks openly about conducting citizens' arrests on politicians and health officials.
"You do it publicly, you say, you gather your group, you get that strength in numbers and you say we will peacefully, lawfully and peacefully be performing a citizens' arrest on mayor X or whoever else—could be a Liberal MP, right, we're doing that in Halton, could be a health official, whatever, arrest them all, doesn't matter," Oke says. "But the point being, make it public and tell them what you're going to do and who you're going to do it to. We are not going to be detaining this person, there won't be any worry of kidnapping or anything. We have the evidence here."
Oke is a martial-arts instructor.
"We are going to be whatever—50, 75, 100, 200 parents—all saying that mayor X is under arrest for crimes against our children, reckless endangerment, child abuse, criminal negligence, child abandonment, bodily harm, administering a noxious substance, torture, violation of the oath of office," he continues. "All of these crimes are in the binder, and as we've said, these crimes and the binder have been vetted by police officers, by paralegals, by lawyers, by law students. All of them say that this is the way to win..."
