In some of the most shocking scenes to come out of Ottawa over the weekend was video of Royal Canadian Mounted Police trampling an elderly woman with a walker on horseback.
Several RCMP officers can be seen ramming their horses into the crowd of protesters as they clear a path for other officers.
A group of officers on horseback refused to stop or even slow down when they brutally trampled a group of protesters who likely didn’t see them coming at all.
The officers just continue moving along as if nothing happened.
One woman with a walker was trampled by the horses.

The woman was later identified as protester “Candy”. She was sleeping in her car at night during the protests.
Candy posted a thank you on her Twitter page.
Meet Candy. She’s the Mohawk elder who stood with the Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa who was trampled by police horses. She is currently hospitalized. This interview was taken four days ago. pic.twitter.com/GzKZY9wrn0
