A wall was set up at the National War Memorial with "Thank you, truckers" notes written during the February "Freedom Convoy" protest in downtown Ottawa.

Topp approached the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and kneeled. As Topp hugged supporters, the crowd chanted, "Thank you."


Was He Arrested For Speaking Out Against COVID-19?

James Topp was not arrested but charged for two accounts. Topp was marching for three reasons, according to the Canada Marches website. 

The reason was protesting federal government COVID-19 vaccine mandates, assisting Canadians who have been denied employment and services or have lost income due to the mandate, and advocating on behalf of those who have been pressured into taking the vaccine.

"We rise to serve Canadians with honesty, respect, and compassion to bring our country back together," he said.
