If you heard a commotion downtown Saturday afternoon, it was probably the Jack Poole Plaza protesters.

Vancouver police said they had to close several roads in the area near Coal Harbor due to congestion.

Protesters took over the square on March 19, with convoy supporters on one side and counter-protesters on the other.

Mask mandates have already been lifted in the province recently, and these protests may continue until all laws related to COVID-19 are dropped.

Among the protesters, Canadian conspiracy theorist Chris Sky was spotted there with a camera crew by counter-protesters.

Recently, BC Premier John Horgan told convoy protesters to “shake your heads” earlier this month.

The group Community Over Convoys, which organizes to protest supporters of the ‘Freedom Convoy’ in Vancouver, tweeted that they had been ‘kicked’ out of space by VPD after learning they needed a allowed.

They also tweeted about several arguments between the two groups, convoy supporters allegedly clashing and following them even after the VPD told them to leave.

Daily Hive Vancouver has contacted the Vancouver Police Department and Community Over Convoys for comment and will update this story.
