A Kitimat man who ran as a candidate in last fall's federal election is in Ottawa this week, where he plans to attend a Canada Day rally on Parliament Hill.
 
Organizers are calling it a "Freedom Rally" and say they've invited thousands of Canadians to take part.
 
Jody Craven, who ran for the ultra-conservative People's Party of Canada in the Skeena-Bulkley Valley riding last October, accuses the Trudeau government of eroding the freedoms of Canadians.

Organizers are expecting a large crowd, which has health experts concerned about social distancing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
But Craven believes the response to the pandemic has been driven more by politics than protecting people's health.
 
He says the federal government is building up a massive debt, which is going to burden Canadian taxpayers for generations.
