Freedom Convoy Truckers Occupy and Shut Down Ambassador Bridge on Border of Detroit and Ontario
The freedom convoy of Canadian truckers shut down the Ambassador Bridge connecting Detroit, Michigan to Windsor, Ontario on Monday night.
They shut down all traffic on the bridge for the night, the Detroit Free Press reports, but U.S.-bound traffic has since opened up. Traffic going from the U.S. to Canada is still blocked off by the truckers as of Tuesday morning.
The Windsor police department urged protesters to act “peacefully and respectfully” while demonstrating against tyranny:
Ontario Trucking Association President Stephen Laskowski came out with a public statement against the protests, which are also affecting the large metropolis of Toronto.
“The vast majority of the Ontario trucking industry is vaccinated and the overall vaccination rate among commercial drivers closely mirrors that of the general public,” Laskowski said.
“The Ontario Trucking Association does not support and strongly disapproves of any protests on public roadways, highways, and bridges,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on how the Canadian freedom trucker convoy is inspiring the world to resist tyranny:
“Freedom-loving humans all over the world are rallying behind the convoy of Freedom truckers making their way to Ottawa to defy leftist Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s Coronavirus tyranny. Trudeau’s government is mandating vaccine passports for truckers hauling goods into the United States despite the fact that thousands of Canadian truckers remain pureblooded, rejecting the Coronavirus vaccine. This protest also highlights how truckers supply goods to everyday people on the North American continent, which is being ravaged by manipulated supply chain shortages.
The convoy, which is now reportedly about 50,000 trucks strong and takes up about 45 miles of road space, is slated to arrive at Parliament Hill in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa on Saturday. Billionaire Elon Musk tweeted, “Canadian truckers rule.” A similar trucker uprising in Australia was proposed online not long ago. Will the success of the Canadian protest lead to more Freedom convoys elsewhere? Trudeau, for his part, sputtered, “The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other, who know that following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values, as a country.” Trudeau is reportedly going to be in isolation in his home when the truckers get there, because Trudeau claims to have been exposed to the ‘Rona virus though he tested negative.
The Canadian trucker convoy is especially timely for American freedom-lovers, because it overlaps with a recent surge in pro-Freedom activity in the United States. The hashtag #DonewithCovid took off in popularity. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other truthers held a massive rally in Washington, D.C. to stop the draconian mandates inflicted upon the citizenry. Even leftist commentator Bill Maher expressed his increasing frustration with Coronavirus restrictions. If our neighbors up north are putting it all on the line to stop the authoritarian madness, it bodes well for the Freedom movement in America. And American patriots are showing support for the convoy.“
Truckers are realizing that the power is in their hands. The one-world technocracy may come to a screeching halt if this idea of resistance spreads.
