THOUSANDS OF TRUCKERS CONVOY IN PROTEST
The biggest protest in Canadian history, “The Trucker’s Convoy,” is rolling into Ottawa with a simple list of demands. Meanwhile, Canada’s PM Trudeau is reporting to the world it’s a small fringe group. The world is watching as this epic showdown unfolds.
Thank you so much for your good works. I have been tuning in from Canada for a few years now and am very much aligned with your work. I wanted to share the hope I have seen reinstated in our Country in the last week as the truckers have united people across the land. The dream that we believed as children here, hasn’t died after all and the fire has gone from spark to flame in a matter of days, All walks and races, and religions uniting. Which is essential if we are to remind the government that they work for and represent the people, and then overcome some of the other challenges we face. One of the things we are experiencing, besides hope, which is a life line, the people will not soon let go of, is what we can accomplish united. This protest was never just about the truckers being mandated. That was scraped 3 days before the date they were going to initiate it. It is about ALL mandates, for ALL Canadians. It is about paving the way for politicians who actually listen and represent us, and about the media reporting the truth, not the narrative of the elite. But beyond that, it is about UNITY. Our government has many warts. Our country is founded on genocide, and has inherent systemic racism within the government that is still very prevalent to this day. Many are still bridging their cognitive dissonance. The dream of many races and cultures was what we were conditioned to believe was the moral backbone of our land growing up, and it is a bitter pill to swallow waking to the truth that that the last residential school closed here in 1996. That our Indigenous peoples do not have clean drinking water and are being pushed off their traditional territory even now, to make way for big gas and oil. But the dream is in our hearts, if not modelled by our governance and we are beginning to understand where the power truly lies and what we are capable of. Our job is to govern them and their job is to work for us. It warms my heart and soul to see this movement inspiring the world. This is what I recall from my ideas of this land as a child. We raised almost 10 million dollars in one week. Once we saw that we began a fund to help get water to the indigenous people. No more waiting to be taken care of. We no longer ask permission, we are spelling it out and mobilizing. We will tolerate peace and freedom. Kindness and Compassion. Unity is the only way forward, for all of us, as one global family. For all your tireless and fearless work, Miigwetch~
