In an effort to shut down Canadian’s right to free speech, Ottawa City Mayor Jim Watson has declared a state of emergency.
“Declaring a state of emergency reflects the serious danger and threat to the safety and security of residents posed by the ongoing demonstrations and highlights the need for support from other jurisdictions and levels of government,” the city said in a statement that was posted on social media.
Today, February 6, Mayor Jim Watson has declared a state of emergency for the City of Ottawa due to the ongoing demonstrations.

Police will begin cutting off the fuel supply to the truckers at midnight tonight. Anyone who brings gas, diesel, or propane will be charged with “assisting an illegal activity.” Ottawa Police also warn demonstrators they could also be arrested.

Last night, as the temperatures dropped and snow fell in Ottawa, supporters of the TruckersConvoy were seen singing and dancing in the streets.

Truckers shared their food with the homeless in Ottawa, while the media ignored their generosity in an attempt to paint the brave freedom fighters as monsters.
NEW: Truckers are providing meals for the homeless in downtown Ottawa. Zero mainstream media coverage. Organizers also have pop-up pizza ovens cooking food for everyone all over. This is who Trudeau is calling "unacceptable." pic.twitter.com/0uySAyA4iJ

These images showing riots during the G20 Summit in Toronto vs. the peaceful “defacement” of property say it all:
Let's keep this in perspective. Left: Toronto G20 Protests 2010. Top Right: Vancouver Hockey Riots 2011. Bottom Right: Ottawa Convoy Protest 2022. I don't like the convoy's message, but the indignant, lib-lefty, whiney, limp-wristed, hand-wringing hyperbole in Ottawa is silly. pic.twitter.com/nZpC8taCxY
