Canadian Truckers Vindicated


Well, its been two years.

Two years since the Freedom Convoy up in Canada made headlines.

Then the government came in and stomped it out.

But finally the court has ruled that the convoy was stopped using unconstitutional means.

Vindication has arrived!

And it looks like they might be ready to pick up where they last left off.

Canada Convoy, part 2?

ABC News reports:

A Canadian judge has ruled that the government’s use of the Emergencies Act to quell weeks of protests by truckers and others angry over COVID-19 restrictions in 2022 was unreasonable and unconstitutional.

Up to thousands of protesters clogged the streets of the capital of Ottawa and besieged Parliament Hill, demonstrating against vaccine mandates for truckers and other precautions and condemning Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government.

The act allowed authorities to declare certain areas as no-go zones. It also allowed police to freeze truckers’ personal and corporate bank accounts and compel tow truck companies to haul away vehicles.

Members of the self-styled Freedom Convoy also blockaded U.S.-Canada border crossings in protest. Police arrested 11 people at the blockaded crossing at Coutts, Alberta, opposite Montana, after learning of a cache of guns and ammunition.

In the decision released Tuesday, Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley said the invocation of the Emergencies Act led to the infringement of constitutional rights.

“I conclude that there was no national emergency justifying the invocation of the Emergencies Act and the decision to do so was therefore unreasonable,” Mosley wrote.

The Freedom Convoy shook Canada’s reputation for civility, inspired convoys in France, New Zealand and the Netherlands and interrupted economic trade. For almost a week the busiest U.S.-Canada border crossing between Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit was blocked.

Language Warning:

Meanwhile in the States, there’s a convoy about to happen.

And it looks like they’re expecting around 700,000 to join.

Clip about 2 years ago:

Here’s to reclaim our freedom in everyway.

And also be alert.

I’m sure the powers-that-be would love to pull another Jan. 6 moment whenever patriots are gathered.
