Ontario independent MPP Randy Hillier has been suspended from Twitter on Tuesday after months of speaking out against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and other public health measures.

The news comes after Ottawa police recently revealed they were investigating the MPP’s Twitter activity due to comments related to the so-called “Freedom Convoy” protests in the capital city.

In messages to CTV News Toronto, the Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston MPP said the social media platform suspended his account because he “stated the truth.”

I erred and stated a fact which Twitter found offensive,” he said on Tuesday, adding that his comments were in regards to the court-ordered Pfizer documents released last week about deaths due to vaccination.

First I’m hearing of this Randy Hillier fellow. Looking him up on Wikipedia I find out that he was originally elected as a member of the Progressive Conservative Party (yuck), but he was removed in 2019.

I like what I’m hearing!


Hillier was suspended from the PC caucus by Premier Doug Ford on February 20, 2019 after making what Ford characterized as “disrespectful comments to parents of children with autism.”[40] Hillier denied the allegation, and said he was ousted for other reasons. A letter sent by the PC Party President was released blaming him for a lack of commitment to the caucus.[41] He was subsequently removed from the PC caucus on March 15, 2019.[42]

Randy Hillier

Anyone who is hated by twitter and conservatives is automatically a great guy, until he resoundingly proves otherwise.

CTV News Toronto has reached out to Twitter, but has not yet received a response as to why the MPP’s account was suspended.

On their website, Twitter states that they suspend accounts that violate their rules, which are meant to ensure “all people can participate in public conversations freely and safely.”

As someone who had a tiny twatter account censored I can tell you how much of a joke that is, but I don’t think the audience even needs to hear that in the year 2022. Instead, I’ll leave you with this.

The MPP has made racist and discriminatory social media statements about federal Transport Minister Omar Alghabra, and also allegedly wrote posts that were insinuating a call to violence.

I’ll never endorse a candidate I know this little about, and Hillier has already stated that he won’t be running for re-election. However, he’s certainly hitting all the right notes with me.
