MPP Randy Hillier & His Kids Get Hit With Charges After 200-Person 'Mask Burning Party'

Hillier has so many charges that he's using them as wallpaper.

Ontario MPP Randy Hillier, his two sons, and his daughter have all been charged by the OPP for their participation in an illegal gathering that took place in Kemptville on April 8, Const. Dave Holmes confirmed to CBC News.

In a news release, Grenville County OPP stated four individuals were charged in relation to the event, including the organizer and the business, which saw a turn-out of around 200 people.

The "mask burning party" took place at The South Branch Bistro in North Grenville, although the restaurant claimed in a Facebook post that the name of the event was a joke — "We won't be burning masks... just metaphorically," they wrote.

Randy Hillier and his son have been vocal about the charges on social media, with Randy calling them "unconstitutional," and his son claiming the charges are "political intimidation."

This isn't the first time Hillier has landed himself in hot water over COVID-19 protocols. In December, the MPP defended a photo posted of a 15-person gathering over the Christmas holidays.
