A huge group of people flooded to Niagara over the weekend to participate in an anti-lockdown rally.
The rally, which reportedly took over the city from 1 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, was to fight back against Doug Ford's newest measures.
In some footage, you can even spot crowds of people blocking off local streets.
According to the PPC Association of St. Catharines, the protest also called to stop the deaths from suicide, overdoses and delayed surgeries during this time.

Maxime Bernier, leader of the People's Party of Canada, was spotted addressing the huge crowd of protesters in the city's tourism district.

Footage of the event clearly shows large groups of people violating the province's stay-at-home order by not wearing masks or social distancing.
