Canadian restaurant owner who defied government's COVID rules wins legal battle

A Canadian restaurant owner who refused to follow the government's coronavirus policies has won his legal battle, Media Bezirgan reports

Per the outlet, "The court hearing that lasted 10 minutes ended with cheers from the crowd after an unexpected decision by the crown to withdraw charges."

The restaurant owner is Jesse Johnson. He owns Without Papers Pizza, which is located in Calgary.

Johnson, during the COVID-19 pandemic, refused to implement the city's COVID-19 policies. This resulted in Johnson, among other things, losing his business license.

The Blaze reports:

[Johnson's] business faced shutdowns and charges from the Alberta provincial government after it refused to close while also declining to participate in Canada's vaccine passport program, which required two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to eat indoors at restaurants.

Now, however, the Canadian government has dropped its charges against Johnson.

Following the decision, Johnson said, "These bastards, they literally tried to break me — financially, mentally, and spiritually. It was not me that broke the law, but the law itself."

Johnson also said that he would "love to go back and provide the love and pizza that we gave to all the people of Calgary regardless of vaccination status."

Now, Johnson says that he is planning to bring his own lawsuit against the Canadian government.

Without Papers Pizza's webpage states:

Without Papers Pizza is pursuing a civil suit against the City of Calgary & Alberta Health Services in regards to the vaccine passport (City of Calgary Bylaw 65M2021) and the illegal closure of Without Papers Pizza for refusing to discriminate its customers. Please consider donating to our Give Send Go campaign.

This is followed by a "donate" link that takes users to a webpage where they can donate money to this effort. This page states that Johnson has already obtained legal representation.

"I am pleased to announce that the Democracy Fund has agreed to fund our defense and has hired Chad Williamson from Williamson Law to represent us. The funds received from this campaign will go towards his counsel and the balance will be picked up by the Democracy Fund," the donation page reads.

It continues, "I wish to give thanks to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the many patriots who donated to our cause."
