Canadian authorities move in to clear Freedom Convoy truckers off bridge, Trudeau’s govt. deploys snipers
02/16/2022 // JD Heyes // Views

Canadian authorities under the leadership of left-wing authoritarian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford have made good on their promise to use force to end a trucker protest that seeks an end to a pointless COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Heavily armed police using armored vehicles and sporting automatic weapons while also deploying snipers -- this Freedom Convoy protest has never been violent, by the way -- moved in on Monday to clear an international bridge of trucks, drivers and supporters after they had all essentially been labeled 'terrorists' and 'threats to the national economic interest' by people who locked down their economies for nearly two years.

The Epoch Times has more:

Heavily armed police came to the site, including officers from the Windsor Police Service, Ontario Provincial Police, RCMP, and others. There are also armored vehicles and several police cruisers.

Most trucks and other vehicles were cleared from the blockade early in the day, but [the] standoff with protesters on foot continued.

A line of police officers advanced on the protesters around mid-day, pushing them further away from the site of the blockade.

Police said in the afternoon that it had started ticketing and towing vehicles at the protest site.

“The Windsor Police and its policing partners have commenced enforcement at and near the Ambassador Bridge,” the department noted on social media. ‘We urge all demonstrators to act lawfully and peacefully. Commuters are still being asked to avoid the areas affected by the demonstrations at this time.”

"Trudeau had deployed snipers against a peaceful, unarmed protest. Snipers," wrote Ezra Levant, publisher of the Canada-based Rebel Media.

"Vehicles blocking the Ambassador Bridge pulling out one by one. Still being cheered on by protesters as dozens of police officers have surrounded them," CBC News reporter Thomas Daigle noted on Twitter.

Protester Domenico Pelle told The Epoch Times that some demonstrators informed police that while they will leave on Monday after being forced out, if the province refuses to lift the COVID-19 vaccine mandates in a couple of days, they are coming back.

“We’re trying to uphold our Charter of Rights and Freedoms out here,” Pelle, a machinist, said at one protest site.

Of course, the tyranny isn't just on the Canadian side of the border, as evidenced by tweeted remarks from a former Obama administration Department of Homeland Security official.

“The convoy protest, applauded by right wing media as a ‘freedom protest,’ is an economic and security issue now. The Ambassador Bridge link constitutes 28% of annual trade movement between US and Canada,” tweeted Juliette Kayyem. “Slash the tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks.”

She then doubled down on her tyranny: “Trust me, I will not run out of ways to make this hurt: cancel their insurance; suspend their drivers’ licenses; prohibit any future regulatory certification for truckers, etc. Have we learned nothing? These things fester when there are no consequences,” Kayyem tweeted.

Leftists are the fascist tyrants, not conservatives. That should be obvious by now.
