In yet another chilling dispatch from Justin Trudeau’s Canadian police state, an Ontario woman received a surprise visit from law enforcement over her activity on a pro-convoy Facebook group, an example of how panicked that authorities are over the ongoing “Freedom Convoy” protests.

Last week, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police was caught on video when she appeared on the doorstep of a private citizen to provide literature on peaceful protesting which should serve as a warning to Canadians who might object to the country’s oppressive COVID policies that they are being watched.

In the cellphone video which has since gone viral, the woman who has been identified as Nadine Ellis-Maffei pressed the well-mannered female cop on why she was there after initially asking,  “Sorry since you’re at my home, can I just get your name and your badge number?”

After presenting a card, the officer also handed the woman a leaflet with “information about peaceful protests,” stating. “That’s all it is.”

The resident asked, “Ok, so you saw something on my Facebook?”

The officer replied that her activity on the “Facebook group” is what prompted the visit.

The woman continued, “And decided to come to my personal residence to give me information about peaceful protests?” To which the officer said, “yes.”

After noting that the officer was not with the Peterborough police but rather the Ontario Provincial Police, Ellis-Maffei asked, “Are you guys now monitoring people’s Facebook pages or Facebook groups to who comments, as to what their status updates are, or what they’re doing or within the group?”

The officer then acknowledges that due to the protests that the social media activity of private citizens is being monitored, explaining that there was an upcoming protest and then politely saying that she was leaving.

Ellis-Maffei pressed on, “So the Ontario Provincial Police are watching what people are doing on Facebook in different groups, whether or not they’re commenting, participating, liking, and you guys are now doing service calls to give people information about peaceful protests?”

The officer confirms the snooping saying, “It’s just a proactive measure to make sure you understand your rights about peaceful protesting.”

The video ends with the woman saying, “I’m hoping that you guys aren’t gonna waste our tax dollars continuing to do this to everybody, but now it’s nice to know that we’re being watched.”

Following the interaction, the OPP was compelled to issue a statement that was posted to Twitter by Canadian media personality Andrew Lawton.

According to the OPP, members of the Provincial Liaison Team “use proactive relationship-building and communication to facilitate safe and lawful for everyone wanting to exercise the rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly afforded by Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”

In another tweet, Lawton wrote, “The officer was professional and courteous and nothing she told the woman was incorrect. My concern with this doesn’t lie in the content of the conversation, but its existence.”

He added, “When the police knock on your door to tell you about a protest they know you’re going to be at because they were monitoring Facebook, what they’re really doing is saying “We know who you are and we’re watching you.”

Others took to Twitter to blow the whistle on what some referred to as “thought crime” as well as intimidation.

Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington invoked the nightmarish dystopian novels of George Orwell and Philip K. Dick in a tweet of the video to his 53.1 thousand followers.

Another Twitter user likened the OPP’s snooping to the Dick novel “Minority Report” which was adapted for the big screen by director Steven Spielberg in the 2002 sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise about omnipresent future surveillance and “pre-crime” where authorities arrest individuals before a criminal act is carried out.

On Friday, in advance of this weekend’s operation to clear protesting truckers from the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Trudeau vowed to end the blockade and that “everything” is on the table.

In December, the Canadian government admitted that it had secretly surveilled 33 million of its citizens by tracking their movement by cellphone during the COVID pandemic in yet confirmation of how badly the Trudeau regime, which still represents itself as a liberal “democracy,” may have crossed over into outright fascism.
