Truckers are flirting with extremists. They should call off their protest. The closer the #FreedomConvoy of truckers opposed to new rules around vaccine mandates gets to Ottawa, the less it has to do with truckers or even with those rules. #StarEditorial http://torstar.co/Gu3950HF0Qa

'A lot of people are trying to say that these type of things are done out of anger, but this is actually being done out of frustration towards the things the government is imposing upon Canadian citizens,' a man named Trevor told Global News when the convoy passed through the Balgonie area, declining to give his surname.

Freedom Convoy 2022

Updates (2)

 
Today by B.J. DichterTeam member
The Freedom Convoy has inspired truckers from across Canada, the United States, and now the world. The Freedom Convoy to Canberra is one example and has already started in Australia. Their GoFundMe campaign has already raised $63,569. To support their fight in taking back their freedoms, please click here to donate!
Some of the most influential, intelligent, and rational world industrious leaders like Elon Musk, Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, and others, have repeatedly expressed their support for Canadian truckers and the working people who are fed up with our global leaders infringing on our rights and freedoms.

However, we cannot achieve our goals if there are threats or acts of violence. This movement is a peaceful protest and we do not condone any acts of violence, etc.

We live in a world where the pervasiveness of the internet and instant global communication gives more power to words and ideas than any physical weapon - making it a powerful tool that can be used against tyranny and authoritarianism. This is why they censor us and why we must remain peaceful no matter the cost.

We already know there will be activists working at the behest of global authoritarians and think tanks to sabotage our movement. Because of this, we must have a zero-tolerance approach to aggressive behaviour and violence. Please remain calm and loving to one another.

We cannot stress enough how important it is for everyone to do the following:
1. DO NOT enter any government building or government property under any circumstances.
2. Treat all police officers with respect. Front line police officers are already under significant pressure from powerful politicized individuals and local politicians. They are our fellow Canadians, and the police in regions like Peel defended us when they refused to enforce Doug Ford's draconian Covid restrictions on citizens last year. Please do not put front line officers in a difficult position. Always be respectful, even if they issue you a citation. Just know that most of them are doing so under duress.

3. Keep calm. If you see individuals attempting to bait other truckers and attendees into conflict, report them to the police and our staff, or look to others around you to help with de-escalation. Sometimes it merely requires one calm head in a group to temper us all. Don't hesitate to be the negotiator!

4. Do not make any type of threat. Threats lead to escalation, which could lead to violence. Please do your absolute best to stifle any aggressive rhetoric. As you know, the legacy media will be present and will use this as ammunition against our movement. Their business model is built on a strategy of destroying reputations. Do not help them profit from destroying your reputation.

If we keep calm and show love and support for one another, many things will happen. We will eventually cause the government to reverse its policy on Covid passports and vaccine mandates as the UK has recently done. We will meet new friends, develop relationships, and there will likely be people who meet during this peaceful protest and fall in love and build a life together. Let's not sacrifice such a bright future for all of us by loosing our temper.

This is the first step in a long journey to a new golden age of freedom and understanding for one another. Let's build that future together.

There will be a follow up press release after the leaders of the Convoy For Freedom arrive in Ottawa, outlining the date and time for our press conference.

Be good and love one another.

Sending much love and positive vibes to you all!

UPDATED: Trudeau Liberals partially close TWO bridges to Ottawa due to “planned protest” this weekend

UPDATE JANUARY 28, 8:05 p.m. ET: Two bridges connecting Quebec and Ontario are now closed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government.

JANUARY 28, 7:06 p.m. ET: The Trudeau Liberals announced that the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge connecting Gatineau, Quebec with Ottawa, Ontario will close lanes until further notice starting on January 28, 8 p.m. ET due to a “planned protest taking place this weekend in Ottawa.”

Only two lanes will remain open to traffic. The announcement was made this evening by Public Services and Procurement Canada.

Alexandra Bridge, which also crosses the Ottawa River and connects Gatineau with Ottawa, has also been closed due out of an “abundance of caution and safety due to a planned protest taking place this weekend in Ottawa.”

Only pedestrians and cyclists may use the bridge during this time.

Right now, those participating in the Truckers Freedom Convoy are heading to Ottawa from across Canada to protest vaccine mandates and other COVID restrictions.

National Post

Freedom Convoy 2022, Saturday updates: Thousands pack Parliament Hill for protest

Catherine Lévesque,  Anja Karadeglija,  Swikar Oli,  Michael Higgins

Jan 29, 2022 

  • General Wayne Eyre ‘sickened’ by people drinking at National War Memorial
  • Condemnation for whomever ‘touched’ the Terry Fox statue
  • Downtown Ottawa is jammed tight with traffic … and still the trucks come
  • Rideau Centre overwhelmed by unmasked protesters — and closed
  • Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe says unvaccinated truckers are no greater risk than vaccinated ones
  • Maxime Bernier is looking for Erin O’Toole: ‘You must be with the people’
  • CBC says Justin Trudeau has been relocated from Rideau Cottage for his safety

 

By late afternoon, the crowd in front of Parliament’s main gate grew so compact, it was hard to move, reports the Post’s Anja Karadeglija from Parliament Hill. Maskless protesters seemed unfazed by the close proximity. People milled about and took selfies in front of Centre Block; one man planted a Quebec flag, made a lounger out of snow …and enjoyed his beverage.
The demonstrations stretched down Wellington Street and toward, but not fully into Byward Market. On the street in front of the National War Memorial, protestors climbed atop a loaded logging truck, and other danced on the memorial — prompting Canada’s chief of defence staff to express frustration . Few bothered to wear masks as they made their way into Rideau Centre, the downtown mall. Groups hit up the food court and sat on the floor eating their meals; Occasionally, someone would shout “freedom”.
A number of the protestors walked around with cans of beer and with no obvious access to porta-potties, some turned to relieving themselves in corners.

Smearing the Truckers

John Hinderaker

January 30, 2022

You no doubt are aware of the protest being staged by thousands of Canadian truck drivers who have now converged on Ottawa. The truckers began by protesting against a vaccination mandate for truckers crossing the U.S. border, but it has grown into a movement opposing extreme and irrational anti-covid measures, and promoting freedom generally.

Naturally, the liberal press is horrified. You likely have seen this bizarre editorial cartoon that appeared in–where else–the Washington Post:

Putting aside whatever you may think about vaccination mandates, the hostility of the press’s response to any movement that expresses a desire for freedom is striking.
