After years of news footage of protests from land protectors, housing advocates and Black Lives Matter, we’ve become familiar with the police response: the bullet-proof vests, the helmets and the heartbeat thump of batons on shields as smoke from tear gas canisters wafts through the air.

They didn’t intervene when a second wave of supporters – also opposing vaccine mandates, the government of Justin Trudeau and often linked to far-right activists – arrived with signs, food and gas. They also stood by as those protesters marred national monuments and even called for replacement government, all while setting up tents, barbecues and inflatable bouncy castles.
