Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family have left their home in Ottawa for a secret location. Citing safety concerns the report said with CBC, as thousands of people and vehicles rolled in to Ottawa starting Friday night and early Saturday morning.
For nearly two years Trudeau has condemned Canadians that disagree with his and his view on COVID. This week authoritarian chief Justin Trudeau called freedom rally supporters racist and holding “unacceptable” views that are not Canadian.
“The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing do not represent the views of Canadians “
He still has no interest in a reasonable debate with Canadians and unwilling to hear the voices of the people at the Truckers for Freedom rally.
“We cannot achieve our goals if there are threats or acts of violence,” B.J. Dicher told CBC. “This movement is a peaceful protest, and we do not condone any acts of violence.”
The rally organization has given specific intrusions for no one to attempt entering any of the Government buildings, disrespect police, escalated tensions or make “any type of threat.”
Canada Unity has disconnected itself from any type of hate groups saying this is a freedom rally and violence is not accepted. The majority of people showing up just want their voices to be heard because they feel like no one is speaking for them in Ottawa.
What politicians are saying
Erin O’Toole and the Conservative Caucus have rallied their names behind the Freedom movement to stand up for everyone in Canada, especially the ones that want to work hard. The stressed the point they respect the truckers and the people’s rights to a peaceful protest. While denouncing any type of “unacceptable” behavior and said individuals will be held responsible and accountable for their actions if anything unacceptable happens.
Conservative MP’s will be engaging with demonstrators at the Truckers for Freedom rally. They have all said they understand the people attending the rally have concerns. The Conservative party is not the party in power of Canada and it is the responsibility of the Prime Minister to hear these voices but he refuses to. On the other hand Conservatives will be giving their ears to the people.
At least one parliamentarian was among Saturday’s crowd. Conservative MP Michael Cooper, who represents an Edmonton-area riding, told CBC News he was there to show support to “a whole lot of everyday Canadians” that were out to express “concerns with the direction Justin Trudeau is taking the country.”
“The vaccine mandate just doesn’t make any sense, and it’s only going to exacerbate our supply-chain issues,” Cooper said. A number of business groups, including the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, warned this week the trucker mandate could disrupt the free flow of goods between Canada and the U.S.
Earlier this week NDP leader Jagmeet Singh jumped on the “racist” bandwagon condemning the Convoy for Freedom claiming its harboring “racists” labeling the truckers and other supports as a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views” because he disagrees with them. Singh also refuses to hear or talk to the people just like Justin Trudeau. Bithbthese authoritarians don’t care about Canadians rights to a peaceful protest and reasonal debates unless they agree with what you say. They stigmatized and even smaller grouo and tried to paint everyone in the freedom rally with the same brush. That is bias and discriminatory. These dividers are a disgrace for leaders and need to step down.
Leader of the People’s Party of Canada Maxime Bernier has been on the ground since the start of Saturday. He is in full support of fundamental rights of freedoms for everyone in Canada. His position has not changed on this matter. In the election 2021 he ran his campaign dedicated to freedom.
This is what the Ontario police are saying
On Friday, Ottawa Police Service chief Peter Sloly warned of “lone-wolf” elements who would use the protests to cause havoc.
“We do not know all the parallel demonstrations that may occur, and/or the lone-wolf individuals who may insert themselves into the mix for various reasons,” he said on Friday, calling the protests “unique, fluid, risky and significant.”
This is how the Truckers for freedom rally is going
As the trucks flooded in to the city traffic it has disrupted traffic clogging up the streets. The rally has been very loud with lots of horns honking jamming up traffic in the Capital. With so many people in such a small area we are happy to say there is currently no reported incidents and no one has been arrested or charged by the police reported CBC
There is lots of positivity, cheering, horn honking, drum circles and mass amounts of Canadian flags flying high. It looks much like a party than anything else.
We will have more details as the rally trucks along this week.
