Trudeau warns trucker convoy crackdown coming following late-night meeting

Washington Examiner – by Barnini Chakraborty

OTTAWA, ONTARIO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ready to “respond with whatever it takes” to end the Freedom Convoy following a series of late-night meetings with opposition leaders, key Cabinet ministers, and senior officials.

The Canadian leader has been under intense pressure from not only politicians in his own country but also from the White House to end the demonstrations against vaccine mandates that have clogged the main arteries into major Canadian cities and blocked multiple bridges, crippling cross-border business.

“The prime minister and ministers will continue to work closely with all orders of government and local authorities to respond with whatever it takes to help provinces and municipalities end the blockades and bring the situation under control,” his office said in a statement following Thursday’s meetings.

U.S. officials have urged their Canadian counterparts to use federal powers to put an end to the protest.

A White House official said on Thursday that President Joe Biden is “being regularly briefed” on the protests.

The protests, which began in Ottawa, have spread across Canada, with solidarity protests popping up in the United States and Australia.

In the Canadian capital, Trudeau has become public enemy No. 1 among protesters, and his outright refusal to meet with or hear out the truckers has only fueled the growing resentment toward him.

“Trudeau isn’t for the people,” protester Shawn Pelletier told the Washington Examiner. “He thinks that we are a fringe minority, but we’re not. Look around. More people are coming. We’re getting worldwide recognition and support.”

Protester Juliana Mayes told the Washington Examiner that the demonstrations aren’t “even about the vaccine anymore. This is about fighting for our freedom.”

“Everybody has come together as a community,” she said. “Our war [veterans] didn’t fight so we would be a communist country. This protest is about honoring them, and Justin Trudeau can kiss my a**.”

The last part of Mayes’s comment generated loud applause and cheers from a group that had gathered near Parliament Hill on Thursday night.

Another protester, Ronnie Class, told the Washington Examiner he believes the cavalry of supporters rolling in from different Canadian and U.S. cities ahead of a planned weekend protest shows that support isn’t waning.

“We’re not leaving,” he said. “You can threaten us with arrests and fines, but we’re not going anywhere. We’ve got a steady rotation of food being delivered. We’re looking out for each other.”

Local businesses in downtown Ottawa say they are bracing for demonstrations. Many of the shops and restaurants in ByWard Market have closed up, while a few say they’ll stay open but are prepared to lock their doors if things take a turn.

Friday marks the 15th day of demonstrations over COVID-19 restrictions.

  1. The Truckers keep saying this is a peaceful demonstration. That is the problem. We have a Prime Minister who has committed genocide, treason and financial and economic terrorism in broad daylight and we should be peaceful? This is absurd! When the thugs that pretend to govern have violated their Oath they have abdicated their right to govern and the people have all the rights to remove Trudeau by force if necessary. When people vote they delegate their power to the government but when the government commit crimes of treason they must be removed by force. The people do not lose their authority when they vote, they still retain it. So I urge the people to use force buy machine guns if necessary and kill all the politicians at all level and police. This is not violence is self-defence against a psycoath, pathological liar, narcissist megalomaniac un-Justin Trudeau and all who support this mad dog. The thugs have declared war and you truckers want to be peaceful? It’s absurd.

    1. I agree it appears absurd & it can be very frustrating sitting on the sideline. While I’m just as pissed off hearing what sounds weak to me & this whole “freedom convoy” thing certainly has the whiff of a psyop at least at some level I can actually see one “possible” upside to the strategy so far though (be it intentional or not) – with the truckers constant public appeal for non-violent resolution it will be VERY clear publicly who the “bad guys” are if violence is used by the corporation against these so-far peaceful “protesters”. The use of violence for self-defense is way more generally accepted. How much the general public perceives this, and more importantly WHO they believe to be right or wrong is in the wind but given the current climate it at least has the potential to swing in a direction not favorable to the NWO criminals. Remember, we are still deep in the psychological or soft phase of this war at the moment. If you want as many of the public to be behind you as possible when the real hard war starts you probably need to score as many points as possible in the lead-up. Not trying to make up any excuses for anyone here or even suggest I know exactly what’s going on in either camp but just trying to analyse it a bit from a strategic point of view to see what might be gained in the longrun. Don’t worry, there’s also a side of me that says f*ck the general public as they had their chance when all this “covid” BS started & they’re gone anyway so I’m not just trying to stir the pot here. Personally I would definitely be in the same trench as most here when it comes to how to ultimately deal with ALL the criminals involved & that doesn’t involve lengthy “discussions”! 😉 This is all really just thinking out loud so please forgive me if you think I’m just rambling.

      1. Ally, IMO, your best line in your thoughtful analysis of this obvious psy-op is, “f*ck the general public as they had their chance when all this “covid” BS started & they’re gone anyway…” I say, f*ck the contingent of the general public that is still going along with it, still pointing fingers at those of us who said NO, right out the gate, those who thought they were doing the right thing by following orders until they realized they had been duped. Mass compliance was a huge mistake. No doot aboot it!
