Prime Minister Trudeau may have given himself sweeping powers to crush the voices of those protest against COVID-19 mandates outside of Parliament in Ottawa, but that hasn’t stopped protests against COVID-19 mandates from spreading across the country.
This past weekend, pro-freedom protesters calling for an end to COVID-19 mandates rallied for a third consecutive week, near the Pacific Highway Border Crossing, between Surrey, British Columbia and Washington State.
In a recent report, I showed you how after RCMP prevented a slow roll convoy from circulating near the border, a handful of protesters formed a blockade, and some chaos unfolded.
Since then, at least 16 people have been arrested over multiple days at the border, mostly with charges of mischief, and no blockade currently remains.
These arrests, and even the Trudeau government using the Emergencies Act to hold sweeping powers over what can be done to peaceful protesters who who disagree with him, has not deterred demonstrations from occurring in the area. This past Saturday, a small convoy was joined by a sea of supporters waving Canadian flags, demonstrating against COVID-19 mandates and government overreach.
In today’s report, I take you with me to find out why the blockade was formed, and to hear directly to Brett Taylor, and Clayton Vansteenis, who were two of the first to be arrested on Saturday, February 13, at this border.
