Aircraft operated by Canadian Special Forces during The Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa

Canadian special forces operated an aircraft equipped with surveillance equipment over protests in downtown Ottawa despite a military directive that was supposed to prohibit such activities.

The Jan. 27 directive stipulated that Canadian Forces vehicles and personnel were to avoid the Ottawa protest and Royal Canadian Air Force planes were not to fly over the “Freedom Convoy” demonstration.

But Canadian special forces leaders reasoned they didn’t have to follow the military directive since the surveillance plane they were using was owned by a private defence contractor. National Defence spokesman Dan Le Bouthillier confirmed:

“The amplifications provided by the RCAF through this directive did not apply to these training activities, which were contracted outside of the RCAF,” The U.S.-registered King Air aircraft was airborne over Ottawa on Jan. 28, Jan. 29, Feb. 3, Feb. 10
