  1. ctv news – RCMP begins removing protesters, vehicles at Coutts border crossing | secondary blockades set up

    ( 4 min 52 )

    RCMP began removing a massive blockade of vehicles — many of them semi trucks and trailers — near the Canada-U.S. border crossing at Coutts, Alta. on Tuesday, however some protesters refused to leave and secondary blockades were set up further to the north.

  2. ctv news – Mayor of Coutts, Alta. says border protesters ‘very intimidating’

    Coutts Mayor Jim Willett says he hasn’t had any contact with the protestors at the Canada-U.S. border since they stopped traffic.

  3. Best vid of the day. While Ottawa Mayor dirties his diaper, as a commie he still just doesn’t get it– nobody is asking for his permission. Control freaks freak when they lose control. Sure, they will get ugly, in fact I just heard him on the radio amping up hate.

    Meanwhile, back on the ranch, the RCMP seems to be herding cats:

  4. ctv – Breakthrough in Alberta border blockade, lanes open in both directions

    COUTTS, ALTA. – There has been a breakthrough to resolve the impasse at a protest blockade at the United States border in southern Alberta.
    Chad Williamson, a lawyer representing truckers blocking access to the border crossing at Coutts, Alta., says they have spoken with Mounties and agreed to open some blocked lanes.

    Trucks and other vehicles have begun clearing two lanes — one going north and one going south.

    Demonstrators began parking their vehicles and blocked the highway on Saturday in solidarity with similar events in Ottawa and countrywide — to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates and broader public health measures.

    The tie-up has stranded travellers and cross-border truckers for days, compromising millions of dollars in trade and impeding access to basic goods and medical services for area residents.

    Police tried to peacefully break up the demonstration yesterday, only to see demonstrators breach a nearby checkpoint.

  5. A couple thoughts…
    To the polit bureau, stormtruppen oberfuhrer , central committee and the OPPOSITION ( chortle chorte guffaw) party’s
    The Citizens out number you. All of you. The cops, the CF, the entire liberal party, gov’t and civil service.
    You are out numbered. Do we really have to do this the hard way?
    The monty’s may take a moment to consider that every day, they are surrounded by thousands of 70000lb trucks, and millions of grumpy people.
    Your actions will have lasting consequences.
    If the gestapo escalate to violence, you have the right and duty to defend yourselves.
    If they open hostilities, you out number then. Get close en mass, move decisively, and don’t stop until the threat is unable to offer combat.
    These guys really should have overwatch…

  7. global news – Trucker convoy GoFundMe suspended, ‘under review’ after raising over $10M

    GoFundMe said Wednesday it has paused and is reviewing the fundraiser for Canada’s trucker convoy that has raised over $10 million to date.

    A warning that the fundraiser is “under review” has been posted to its page and donation buttons and a list of previous donors have been removed.

    “This fundraiser is currently paused and under review to ensure it complies with our terms of service and applicable laws and regulations,” GoFundMe’s warning reads.

    “Our team is working 24/7 and doing all we can to protect both organizers and donors. Thank you for your patience.”

    The fundraiser, which lists Tamara Lich as an organizer and B.J. Dichter as a “team member,” has been stopped after raising $10,125,100. It was created to support the truckers that have travelled across Canada to Ottawa to participate in a protest against COVID-19 restrictions.

    That protest began Saturday Jan. 29 and remains ongoing in the nation’s capital, while other protests have sparked up in other cities across the country.

    Distribution of the money raised was previously suspended by GoFundMe as the website said it had to review the organizers’ plans for the funds. However, $1 million was released as the protest began in Ottawa after plans were shown the money would be used to cover the cost of fuel for participants peacefully protesting.

    GoFundMe’s terms of service say that funds cannot be used or raised with the implicit or explicit purpose of violating any law or if there is involvement of “User Content” that is in support of hate, violence, harassment, bullying or “intolerance of any kind relating to race, ethnicity, national origin.”

    Funds also cannot be used for the legal defence of any of those infringements.

    As the trucker protests extend beyond the first weekend with no end in sight, allegations of unlawful behaviour have cropped up, including harassment of media, Ottawa businesses, as well as displays of hateful signs such as the Nazi and U.S. Confederate flags.

    Truckers have also blocked a key border crossing to the U.S. at Coutts, Alta., which was opened for one-lane passing in both directions on Wednesday.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday that the protest in Ottawa is “now becoming illegal” and that the federal government is working with Ottawa police to bring it to an end.

    “One of the important issues with a situation like this is to respect our institutions, systems and laws,” he said.

    “Politicians are not the ones who order law enforcement agencies to take any particular action.”
