Antivaxxers parked a bunch of trucks in DT Ottawa and have been blaring horns 24-7 for a week or so. Waving confed and nazi flags. Clear reports of US influence as well, money and participation. They tried this in a couple of other cities, but the police shut them down before they got started.
They had a gofundme of over 10MM (again, some of it was US money) that got shut down due to illegal activities. Not much being said about this, but that amount of money sure smells like there’s money laundering going on as well.
Looks like the cops are finally starting to tighten the noose today. They’ve taken their fuel and are not allowing any new fuel to come in and are starting to hand out tickets. There’s also a class action lawsuit coming.
Good question: TORONTO — Ottawa police said Wednesday that a “significant element” from the United States has been involved in the participation, funding and organization of a self-described “Freedom Convoy” that has for several days jammed streets in the capital to protest public health measures and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Another one of those things where it was advertised for days beforehand, and government acted like there’s no way they’ll do that, they’re not really serious even though there were all kinds of signs that, yes, they are serious and they really will do that.
No. These people are acting like fascists. They have proven at every instance they have no respect for the Rule of Law. Most may be playing along, but the core group leading this, the dark money behind this, is authoritarian.
