A group of Kelowna residents continues to push back against health restrictions put in place by the provincial government.
Hundreds attended Stuart Park once again with hopes of getting their message heard at a "freedom rally."

Some of those in attendance were carrying signs and wearing Canadian flags.
One sign read "Peace, Love, Freedom," while another claimed that certain health officials would be heading to court.
It did not appear as though anyone in attendance was wearing a mask.
Police officers were in the area to make sure the event didn't cause any problems.
The rally was followed by a march down Water Street as attendees were looking for support from the public.
NowMedia is reaching out to RCMP to see if the organizers of the rally were handed any fines.
