Hundreds gather for 'freedom protest' in downtown Kelowna

Numerous Kelowna residents took to the streets to celebrate their freedom on Saturday.

Close to 300 residents flocked downtown for a "freedom protest" just outside the Kelowna Marina. It didn't appear as though anyone at the rally was wearing a mask.
