A protest against Quebec's vaccine passport has attracted the interest of more than 20,000 people on Facebook.

The march is set to take place in Montreal on August 14, starting from boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest at 2 p.m. and moving onto rue Guy, rue Sherbrooke, and rue Jeanne-Mance before finishing at Place des Festivals for music and speeches.

"The planned implementation of the health pass (proof of vaccination for restaurants, cinemas, sports teams, educational institutions, etc.) is an unprecedented prejudice for the population and is highly discriminatory," reads the Facebook event page. "We must say NO together."

While 22,300 Facebook users replied that they were "interested" in the event, over 10,000 actually marked themselves as "going."

The "NON à la passe sanitaire !" event was organized by Québec Debout, which describes itself on Facebook as an "Information page on events in Quebec in 2021." The page is linked to Daniel Pilon, who recently made the news when La Presse reported he had been disbarred from the Quebec CPA order and fined $10,000 for "unprofessional comments" related to the pandemic.

Pilon is a known leader in anti-lockdown, anti-mask and complotiste, or conspiracy theorist, circles.

The protest is scheduled to last approximately four hours, wrapping up around 6 p.m.
