CALGARY — The Calgary Firefighters Association says it is concerned that groups protesting public health measures have referenced having the support of firefighters and first responders.
Earlier this week, a group held a protest outside of Calgary’s Municipal Building, opposing the City mandating vaccines for all City employees.
One by one, participants could be seen touching the firefighter’s memorial.
In a series of tweets, the Association says it does not in any way endorse these groups or affiliate with them.
We are concerned that groups, such as Calgary Freedom Central, who have been actively protesting public health measures, have been referencing the support of firefighters and other first responders. 1/3
