FLASHPOINT: Canadian Trucker Convoy Arrives in Ottawa


By Jefferey Jaxen

Being called the most inspiring story around the world, the Canadian trucker convoy has rapidly grown to over 40 miles long, raised over $7.5M and reportedly consists of over 50,000 heavy trucks.

The citizens of Canada’s capital city, and home to the office of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, had already begun gathering Friday to greet the convoy:

Trudeau has scored no points with Canadians as he labeled those taking part in the convoy as “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…”

Shortly after his divisive rhetoric, the double Covid vaccinated and boosted Prime Minister announced he’d be ducking out of the public eye to quarantine after being exposed to Covid-19. “I am following @OttawaHealth rules and isolating for five days.” wrote Trudeau on his Twitter account. However, the miottawa.org website states, “Ottawa County Department of Public Health is recommending all individuals follow CDC guidance on isolation and quarantine.” The link listed on Ottawa County DPH’s website to the CDC guidance states, “…you do not need to quarantine [if] uou are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.”

Days before the trucker convoy arrived in Ottawa the Facebook page Freedom Convoy 2022, followed by nearly 250,000 people, posted a press release listing the four basic demands the truckers hope to achieve stating:

“1. The federal and provincial governments terminate the vaccine passports and all other obligatory vaccine contact tracing programs, or inter-Canada passport systems.
2. Terminate Covid vaccine mandates and respect the rights of those who wish to remain unvaccinated 
3. Cease the divisive rhetoric attacking Canadians who disagree with government mandates
4. Cease to limit debate through coercive measures with the goal of censoring those who have varying or incorrect opinions

Freedom Convoy Spokesman Benjamin Dichter appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight recently to discuss the growing threat of the technological vaccine passport overlay that has gripped Canadian truckers:

Meanwhile, the rally has become somewhat of a cause célèbre attracting praise from the likes of business entrepreneur Elon Musk as he wrote to his 72M followers on Twitter “Canadian truckers rule,”adding “CB radios are free from govt/media control.”

On a recent edition of the The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan asked his guest, a former lawyer turned chef and Montreal native Valentine Thomas if she was aware of the truck convoy, which is headed to Ottawa.

“Your country is in revolt,” said Rogan. “Did you know about this?”

Rebel News Canada who has been on the ground covering the event since its inception has just reported that Ottawa’s Public Services and Procurement suddenly announced partial lane closures on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge connecting Gatineau, Quebec with Ottawa, Ontario. The reason given was due to “planned protest taking place this weekend in Ottawa.”
