We’ve just had the most exciting week in the past two years. It started last Saturday, the morning of Jan 23, when the Freedom Convoy left Vancouver for Ottawa to protest the COVID vaccine mandates.
Canadian government has had a contradictory position on the COVID vaccine mandates for truckers. In August 2021, it declared that the federal government’s announcement requiring mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for federal workers as of November 30, 2021, will not apply to federally regulated trucking companies.
On November 19, 2021, the government of Canada announced that as of January 15, 2022, certain categories of travellers who are currently exempt from entry requirements, will only be allowed to enter the country if they are fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved for entry into Canada. These groups includedseveral essential service providers, including truck drivers.
The mass confusion arose on January 12, 2021, when the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) decided to exempt unvaccinated truckers who were dispatched earlier that week.
On January 13, Canada’s Transportation, Health, and public safety ministers released a joint statement, reconfirming truckers coming into Canada from the U.S. must be fully vaccinated or would face PCR testing and quarantine requirements.
A group of patriots started to form a Freedom Convoy. A statement on its Gofundme page, dated on January 14, 2022 by the organizers says:
“To our Fellow Canadians, the time for political overreach is over. Our current government is implementing rules and mandates that are destroying the foundation of our businesses, industries and livelihoods.”
We are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, and now it seems that it is happening here. We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people.”
Although, the out of touch Trudeau denounced the Freedom Convoy as a ‘small fringe minority”, with “unacceptable views”, Canadians showed unprecedented and unwavering support to the truckers all the way through out the country.
Courage is contagious. Now the Freedom Convoy is happening in USA, Europe and Australia.
HOPE is in the air as soon as WE THE PEOPLE STAND UP AND FIGHT!
