Judge grants injunction against noise, idling, fireworks in Ottawa

By The Canadian Press and News staff

An Ontario judge has granted an injunction to enforce noise and idling bylaws in Ottawa.

The protest by antigovernment demonstrators blockading city streets around Parliament Hill is now in its third week.

City solicitor David White requested the injunction Friday, saying the protesters were flagrantly violating bylaws against relentless noise, idling of trucks, setting off fireworks, and open air fires.

On Sunday night, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said the city struck a deal with protesters that would see them move out of residential areas in the next 24 hours.

His office said Freedom Convoy organizers agreed to the city’s demands to confine their protest activities to an area around Parliament Hill.
