An enormous amount of eyes are on Ottawa right now, and 24/7 people are on the edge of their seats, waiting for breaking news about the trucker convoy and protests.
With an event this big, and so much at stake, many are worried constantly about something going awry, from any number of angles. So when there is potential news of a major incident on location, it spreads like wildfire. This just occurred tonight, on Day Two of the big convoy in Ottawa.
At 6:52 PM ET Andy Lee, an independent journalist who has been on the ground reporting at the Parliament Hill protest, posted that on the trucker’s CB it was reported that four transports had crashed through barricades (view archived Tweet here):
It didn’t take long for that to be shared multiple times, with comments and assumptions about ‘false flag’ operations flying, and several people sending tips to Rebel staff about the issue. Of course, upon learning of this potential story, we immediately sent Rebel journalists Alexa Lavoie and Lincoln Jay to the scene to investigate further, though we were also beginning to see reports that it may be a false alarm.
Alexa and Lincoln quickly learned it was indeed a false alarm, and no such incident with a trucker had occurred.
This was also immediately noted and corrected by Andy Lee on her timeline.
For now, the weekend remains peaceful with no major upsets! Emotions are running high right now for many, and the concerns about “false flag” operations, infiltration and other political moves are very real. Thus, the potential for “fake news” is equally high. We will continue to bring you the news as quickly as possible, to ensure you are getting true information on this extremely historic event.
