As the “Freedom Convoy” continues for a second week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau firmly denounced the thousands of Canadian truckers protesting lockdowns and mask mandates.
Trudeau held an emergency debate in Parliament Monday, where he said the protesters don’t represent who Canadians are.
“This is a story of a country that got through this pandemic by being united, and a few people shouting and waving swastikas does not define who Canadians are,” Trudeau said, via The Daily Wire.
The thousands of truckers originally arrived in Ottawa, Ontario, the nation’s capital, on Jan. 29. While blocking the streets, many wielded Canadian flags and “F*** Trudeau” banners. The protestors made perhaps their biggest stand Tuesday, blocking the entrance to the Ambassador Bridge, which serves as a border crossing from Windsor, Ontario to Detroit, Michigan.
The organization raised nearly $10 million in donations through GoFundMe — which the fundraising company later blocked the release of. In a statement, the company said the message of the protest had shifted to become violent.
“We now have evidence from law enforcement that the previously peaceful demonstration has become an occupation, with police reports of violence and other unlawful activity,” the statement reads.
Trudeau appears to be on the same page with GoFundMe, pleading with the truckers to pack up shop and leave the streets.
“Individuals are trying to blockade our economy, our democracy, and our fellow citizens’ daily lives It has to stop,” Trudeau said. “The people of Ottawa don’t deserve to be harassed in their own neighborhoods.”

The Furher of that miserable frozen socialist neighbor to our north
I didn’t know the swaztika resembled the Maple leaf so much as to confuse them…….or maybe Justy is just lying thru his teeth and fake eyebrows….
If there is swasticas, I’m sure it is in reference to the totalitarian behavior of the Canadian government.
Yes, I know I butchered the spelling of swaztiska.
Democracy says the “leader” who put most of the country under house arrest by diktat. Got it.
Maybe if the truckers would have burned down the city and looted businesses Trudeau would have been more understanding.
I understand Trudeau was born without testicles.
He has no idea what to do.
Trudeau seems to forget that HE shut down the Canadian economy for 18 months!!! But that’s ok of course because he is a complete socialist. Keep going truckers! Everyone is behind you!!!
The two yahoo’s with the racist flags were plants and they had their faces completely covered and wore plain clothes not easy to identify because they were plants. No true racist, would be afraid to show their face. They believe in their convictions(as wrong as they are) and aren’t afraid to show it. Plants cover up. These are plants probably sent by Trudeau’s people to discredit the convoy. Leftists always do what they accuse you of.
Antifa probably. That’s right out of their playbook.
Trudeau is the epitome of what Sean Penn recently said, that men have become feminized. Trudeau has no penis, nor testicles.
Trudeau is a pussy, just like his old man was.
It’s almost self-parody. Trudeau is a caricature of leftist condescension.
