In the spirit of the new, authoritarian and Marxist-Maoist Canada, the provincial government of Nova Scotia implements a new “highway safety” bill which in fact is in truth a law that forbids actual Canadians from supporting the Trucker convoy from the East of Ontario. Classic, sneaky, deceptive lefitst modus operandi
Nova Scotia has made it illegal to gather alongside the interprovincial highway in support of the Truckers for Freedom Convoy.
The provincial government announced the directive Friday afternoon, claiming that “allowing people to gather in those areas would put themselves and others at risk.”
Although called a “Highway Blockade Ban” on the government’s press release, and is nominally directed towards “prohibiting protesters from blockading Highway 104 near the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border,” the ban also covers supporters of trucking convoys.
