That's fucked uphttps://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/winnipeg-police-hit-and-run-david-zegarac-1.6341667
David Alexander Zegarac is part of Manitoba’s Antifa Punk scene, The man’s the frontman and vocalist of o.a. Brat Attack, who has multible allegations running against him of sexual misconduct, including a 13 year old girl.
It's about the response by the police, not Trudeau. The police has been soft on the trucker protesters, but if they were indigenous the police would be much harsher. That's what tends to happen with minority populations everywhere.Bit of a weird statement as there’s indigenous truckers in the freedom convoy. So I don’t know what you’re trying to get at with that? Trudeau as a prime minister was a hell of a lot more soft and open to dialogue in the 2020 railway blockades in Canada by indigenous protestors,
I don't know if I would call the freedom convoy protest an insurrection. Insurrection is more like Jan 6th, 2021 at the US capitol. As far as I know, the truckers have mainly just annoyed downtown Ottawa (and a couple other major cities, but the truckers themselves only remained strong in Ottawa).and if they haven’t violated or broken any laws, wouldn’t that lend credence to the idea that this is, infact, a peaceful protest. Instead of an “insurrection” ? and that Justin now having to granthimself emergency powers to actually force an end to what is painfull legal nuiscance, is a rather dictatorial move?
The trucker convoy is no longer a painful legal nuisance, but rather a serious, dangerous event with economic impact. From the perspective of Trudeau it makes sense even if it's just to restore economic activities and ensure border crossings are safe. The police weren't doing their job, which is why the act was needed.
Holy shit that's some dedication. I wouldn't have imagined to live stream the area.One thing i've been doing to see whats actually doing on in these protest without media colouring (from both sides of the isle) is to just have the daily livestreams on while i'm working. Ottowa and Convoy alike. unfiltered, unacted, direct footage, by average Joe's. I'm not going to post the full livestreams here but there's plenty of clips to be found.
Didn't know this, that is cool. It's woefully underreported. If the truckers had stuck to this as opposed to honking their horns all the time, they would have received far more support.flat out not true eh?
In support of your argument, this interview with Mark Graves (Provincial Towing Association of Ontario president) shows the POV of a tow trucker and why tow trucking companies are not towing the freedom convoy trucks. To put it simply, it's not the tow trucking industry's problem.It might have something to do with the fact that, for some honest people who aren’t moral cowards” just following orders or contracts” in the sight of what is (or was) breaking up a legal and peaceful protest isn't a good enough reason.
Good point. I don't think the truckers themselves have threatened the tow trucking company employees. But fear from the tow trucking companies is very real, as shown in the above interview with the tow trucker. The dangers in towing the truck also come from things like booby traps and wheel locks. That won't be an easy job for them. Another thing from the interview with Graves was:nowhere in that article can I find anything about employees being threatened by truckers.
There was no communication that I’m aware of with any towing companies or associations before the government made this announcement. Everybody has to be able to sit at the table and say, “Okay, what’s expected of us, and what pitfalls could there be as a result of doing what’s expected of us?”
That's pretty fucked upUp until this morning, there has been one incident of the police lying to Ottawa Metro Towing in order to get them to remove vehicles from protest, hence them getting backlash which has since been resolved amicably by both parties.
No, I just want someone that is going to try to solve the issue. Not by literally letting the protesters freeze to death, but at least to start negotiations and make the area safer.you want people legally and peacefully protesting to freeze to death… my.. you're very pro police crackdown all of a sudden
Yeah, official sources lack a lot of info and the more nuanced perspectives from the truckers and tow trucking companies.Well I think in this longwinded post i've backed up my claims sufficiently including the childmolestor who rammed his car into the protest, See links above. And it doesn't at all surprise me that "official" sources and MSN don't or very scarsely report on that or other matter mentioned.
Which is precisely why i've been following the livestreams. as its very difficult to colour them to any prefered narrative. And which is why I think having these discussions, like the one's we're having now is important. you're not going to get the truth from the BBC or FOX anymore these days.
