There will be a lot more to come soon. But for the moment, there is enough out there now in media and political response that it becomes easy to see this is fully a political issue. That is to say, it has nothing to do with anything anyone might claim its about, other than suppressing a point of view friendly with traditional and Western Canada, and the notion of individual rights.
Check out these tweets by an Ottawa city councillor who has pronouns in their Twitter handle, a mask on their Twitter photo, and Ukrainian flag colours before the pronouns.
I have met with Ottawa Police and senior City staff.
I have been clear:
I do not want convoys sympathetic to the past illegal occupation in our downtown. They must not stop or stay in our neighbourhoods.

Note: “I do not want convoys sympathetic to the past…”
In other words, its the opinions they seek to suppress. Rule of law and democracy is dead. It is still useful to have examples to prove it though. So we have to thank they/them for that.
