PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT UPDATE IN RED AT BOTTOM
Ottawa police had been in negotiations with the rally planned for April 29/30 called, “Rolling Thunder”. All arrangements had been solidified. A route and locations had been agreed upon, and the Canadian veterans had planned a rally at the War Memorial and Cenotaph downtown which would last a few hours and they would take planned routes out of Ottawa.
Then CTV did a classic hit piece on them with all the right adjectives to create loathing and fear of the people who had put their lives in harm’s way for Canada, and slammed them with the same narrative they maligned the Truckers with, in order to justify what came next.
Please listen to one of the principle people, Neil, who explains what Ottawa’s Mayor did at close to the last moment, and what the mood is. This is what happens when you take away people’s right to peaceful protest, and when you use the police in bad faith, and when the media is nothing more than a weapon of state control.
The video above was made in reaction to a tweeted statement by the Mayor which he now claims was false.
This press release is false
