    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    The church had been converted to an arts centre; the owners of the arts centre had placed it on the market and a tentative sales agreement was (is?) in place with a convoy-adjacent group, who apparently have been renting in advance of the sale, and who appear to have not paid their commercial rent.

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges
