Canada: Ottawa chief of police admits they found no guns among truck protestors

After grilling, Ottawa’s acting chief of police finally admitted that they found no guns among the protestors.

Seeing bravery gives us courage

The truckers who are in Ottawa calling for an end to the Omicron mandates are giving Canadians and people around the world the courage to stand up to the elitist politicians and mainstream media and say enough is enough. People have been scared to oppose the mandates publicly. A recent CTV article in Canada, started off with these mocking words, “The so-called ‘Freedom Convoy’ protest.” A subtle warning that anyone opposing the government’s mandates will be targeted. Anyone publicly opposing Trudeau’s Omicron mandates should also expect to be labeled as a Nazi or racist by the country’s Prime Minister. The protest started shortly after the Trudeau government announced on Jan 15, 2022, that all truckers coming into Canada and returning had to be fully vaccinated. This included Canadian truckers returning from US deliveries. There was outrage, because truckers simply drive into Canada pulling a trailer, unhitch, hitch up another trailer and return home. The world was shocked, as tens of thousands of truckers traveled across Canada to the country’s capital city, Ottawa, calling for an …

Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, comes out of hiding to insult those protesting his COVID mandates

For the past several days, the Mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson, has basically functioned as the Prime Minister of Canada. This is because the country’s actual Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, went into hiding a couple of days before the truck convoy showed up in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa. Now I may not agree with what Watson did, but at least he was trying to do something as thousands of truckers poured into Ottawa demanding an end to the federal government’s COVID mandates. Not only were people watching this event around the world, it was also a federal matter, not a municipal one. Watson even pleaded to Trudeau for help by setting up a dialogue with protestors: Instead, Trudeau came out of hiding to once again insult the tens of thousands of Canadian participating in the ‘Freedom’ demonstrations taking place across the country: Having, a few days earlier, referred to them as Nazis and racists: But people are asking a bigger question, why is the Trudeau government still imposing COVID mandates when Omicron is no worse …

Freedom truck convoys being organized around the world

Fox News is reporting that the trucker protests that started in Canada calling for an end of the COVID mandates are now spreading around the world. Of course, with the emergence of the Omicron variant, which is no worse than the flu, many are asking the obvious questions: Why do people have to take to the streets to call for an end to governments’ COVID mandates? Fox News reports, that similar to what happened in Canada, Big Tech has stepped in to help the government quell the protest in the US: “Brase told Fox News Digital that the U.S. trucker effort was “just shy of 140,000 people when Facebook dropped us.” On Feb. 2, Facebook removed a Facebook page called “Convoy to D.C. 2022.” A spokesperson for Facebook’s parent company, Meta, told Fox News that the platform removed the group “for repeatedly violating our policies around QAnon,” which Facebook previously labeled a “violence-inducing conspiracy network.” Brase had disputed that claim, saying, “That’s just not true.” Fox News reports that the other countries seeing similar protests …

GoFundMe blocks truck convoy fundraiser but allowed this in the past

There was an uproar over GoFundMe’s decision not to release the nearly $10 million donated by thousands of people to support the truck convoy in Canada, calling for an end of the COVID mandates. A recent poll reveals that a majority of Canadians want the mandates to end. It tells you a couple of things. First, it reveals the political naivety of the truck organizers. This is not an insult. It is a pat on the back, that they haven’t been caught up in the political cesspool enveloping North America. Anyone who has been closely following conservative politics over the past few years did not trust GoFundMe. Secondly, it reinforces the opinions that many have about GoFundMe, which decided to not release the funds, accusing the truck protest of violence and occupation, but allowed this. Fox News explains: However, despite its concern about [Freedom Convoy 2022] “occupation,” in 2020 the platform not only allowed, but also gave its backing on social media to a fundraiser for a farmer working in the left-wing Seattle protest which …

CBC expresses fake outrage about the trucker protest in Ottawa

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada’s state-run, taxpayer-funded TV broadcaster. In other words, they are Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s public relations firm. Of course, the Prime Minister is outraged by the thousands of truckers in Ottawa, calling for an end to Trudeau’s COVID mandates. So one of his dutiful CBC reporters, Hannah Thibedeau, dug deep to find something to enrage people, a neat pile of bagged garbage. You see, during their protest in Ottawa, the truckers have been cleaning up after themselves. As Jonathan Kay explains in his article in the National Post: “In true Canadian fashion, protesters even began policing one another’s behaviour. This included setting up ad-hoc litter patrols to clean up everyone else’s mess — leading to the unintentionally hilarious spectacle of CBC reporter Hannah Thibodeau trying to drum up outrage with a tweeted picture of neatly arranged garbage bags.” Kay also had this to say about the protest: The Ottawa police, who’ve been the adults in the room throughout all this, have predicted most trucks will be gone by mid-week. But …

The Antichrist, 666, and … the Truck-Apocalypse

Are we at the end of the world? Did COVID and vaccine mandates start the beginning of the end? Are those Canadian truckers part of the new wave? Maybe. You have probably heard about the truck drivers in Canada who are protesting against government restrictions. The government claims that they are a small fringe group, and most of the population does not agree with them; they are a fringe minority expressing unacceptable views do not represent the majority. That is the common position for most of the media, and politicians. A recent opinion survey asked people in Canada what they thought about the protest convoy, and almost eighty percent claimed to support it. We have some trucks with flags and loud horns, where I live, and I saw some people on an overpass bridge with flags and signs, waiting for a local convoy to pass. There are reports, in some places, that the convoys stretched for miles. This is too big to ignore. READ: Trucker convoy: Blaring horns, cheers as hundreds descend on Parliament I …

Elon Musk throws his support behind Canadian truck convoy protesting COVID mandates

According to an article on Post Millenial, Elon Musk has thrown his support behind the Canadian truck convoy, which some estimate at 35,000 and 50,000 vehicles, who are heading to Ottawa to protest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s COVID mandate. Prime Minister Trudeau recently condemned the convoy calling the truckers a small fringe group who “do not represent the views of Canadians.” However, when the convoy arrives in Ottawa, Prime Minister Trudeau will not be there to greet them as he is isolating at home after coming into contact with a person who tested positive for COVID. While some have portrayed the truckers as anti-vaxxers, this is not the case. Many of them are fully vaccinated but are opposed to the COVID mandates that include preventing unvaccinated US truckers from crossing the US border into Canada and forcing unvaccinated Canadian drivers returning from the US to isolate for two weeks. Meanwhile, Trudeau will only be isolating for five days: As the “Freedom Convoy 2022” wound its way across Canada, tens of thousands of Canadians cheered on …
