OTTAWA (Tuesday, March 28, 2023) — The Ottawa People’s Commission on the Convoy Occupation (OPC) will release Part II of its final report on Tuesday, April 4, offering further analysis of the community impact of the occupation, and 25 recommendations for action.
Through fourteen hearings, eight community consultations, and over 85 written submissions, residents have made it clear to OPC that their faith in government and police was shattered by what they went through during the convoy occupation. They have not seen any recognition of that reality from officials nor any effort to rebuild the community’s confidence.
OPC will hold a news conference on Tuesday, April 4 at 10:00am at the PSAC building at 233 Gilmour Street to mark the official release of Part II of their report and speak to their recommendations to restore the community’s trust.
- Media personnel are asked to confirm their attendance via email to [email protected] .
- Media personnel are asked to arrive 20 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time of the news conference.
- To promote public health and respect those at greater risk, all attendees are expected to wear masks. Masks will also be available on-site.
- OPC staff and volunteers are available to assist journalists seeking interviews and background information.
