The woman punched by a counter protester at the #1millionmarch4kids speaks out

Canadians have begun pushing back against gender identity ideology in schools. But it has not been easy. I spoke at the first #1millionmarch4kids in Victoria, BC on September 21, but the event was shut down barely after it began, the police determining it was too dangerous to continue. A second rally happened on October 21st, and this time a woman was assaulted. Tara, who is using a pseudonym to protect her safety, attended the event in Nanaimo, B.C., and was punched by a male counter protester. In this episode, I speak with her about what happened.
