Coutts Border blockade organizers Marco Van Huigenbos, Alex Van Herk and George Janzen have requested a jury of peers as they face charges of mischief over $5,000.  

The trio appeared in a Lethbridge court on Friday, where the judge granted a Crown attorney’s request for more time to prepare. 

Van Huigenbos told True North the day went well, but that “everything takes forever.” The organizers are back in court next month likely for more “administrative” work, he said. 

“In my opinion, it’s just delay, delay. And whether there’s any strategy to it, I’m not sure,” he said. 

“We know our system is broken, but the amount of time and energy and cost and everything that goes into nothing, in my mind, into proceedings that accomplish little is both frustrating and unacceptable.”

Van Huigenbos also said he’s not sure when organizers will receive an answer on their request to be tried by jury. 

Sources on the ground told True North about 800 people travelled to Lethbride for a rally to support the organizers. 

In January, demonstrators protesting federal and provincial COVID-19 restrictions like vaccine mandates blocked the Canada-US border for more than two weeks. The blockade ended in February after the RCMP found weapons. 

As previously reported by True North, Van Herk was detained by the RCMP in late August.   Officers attempted to get Van Herk to sign a conditional release saying he would end contact with Van Huigenbos, but the condition was dropped after hundreds of people showed up to the RCMP detachment to protest Van Herk’s detainment. 

Van Huigenbos was charged in mid September. 

The three organizers will appear in court again on Dec. 12.


Thanks to your donations, we can move to the next step.  We have filed to incorporate Awake Canada as a registered non profit charitable organization.  To be transparent, I have posted the receipts below.

For those that do not know why we did this, let me explain.   We are going to start using corporate clout to tackle some of the companies that are violating our rights.  Our first target is Facebook Canada for the unlawful censorship, banning, and shadow banning of Canadian Citizens.  Facebook is a platform, not a publisher.  They can write all the mumbo jumbo they want into their terms and conditions, but it does not excuse them from medical liability if people are harmed by them censoring doctors, and lawyers about what is really going on with Covid.

As a registered member of Awake Canada, if we push to class action, you will be automatically entered into this class action and dismissed if you have not ever had a facebook account.   My lawyer will inform me on this as we move to this process.  We are going to start by placing an injunction on my personal account, removing all bans, and shadow bans, and the Awake Canada facebook page.  Any action they take against this page or the content, will be challenged legally.  Be sure you are a member of that page if you are not.   You can join our Facebook Here.

We are temporarily going to pause donations, until the registration process is complete and a new bank account for Awake Canada is setup.  Separating my personal affairs from this corporation is KEY to being successful in our campaigns.

Stay tuned for further updates!
