Millions of Canadians support those truckers. Though that is dangerous as several had their bank accounts frozen for simply donating to them. From the first, the government blackened them with a ruthless brush, had media tell lies about them even before they reached Ottawa. Instead of any negotiations, the PM enacted the Emergency Act (basically suspending all rights) for a time. But strangely many restrictions on the population were lifted immediately THANK YOU TRUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!
The organizer, Tamara, who encouraged the convoy was jailed, at first given NO bail, but later released on a stiff bail, but then arrested and jailed again for talking with a former friend who had also helped organize the convoy) she is out on bail again, with a court case pending next year. All for encouraging a protest which began against COVID-19 vaccine mandates for truckers travelling across the Canada-U.S. border. But it grew to a larger movement as people against COVID-19 mandates and restrictions joined the cause.
Hearings on the validity of enacting the Emergency Act is now in progress. At least some have questioned the ease with which the PM used that act Tamara testifies at the Public Order Emergency Commission in Ottawa
IT seems to have become a crime to protest against anything the government does.
