This whole rally thing is nothing but a bunch of rebellious defiant stupid people getting together to get their moment in the press. They?re all talking about rights, well what about the rights of the cancer patients who?s life saving surgeries have been delayed because people can?t get a shot. Sad and pathetic that the US is sending funds to perpetuate this. What a ridiculous, complete and total sad joke. Send in the military and end this now.

It?s expanded to every capital city. Police are advising us right now not to go near Broadway and Memorial. We can?t dismiss it either.

Cities need plans to deal with this.

I am okay with people protesting as long as everyone is following the law. If the protestors where played legally there would be no problem on Broadway.

They should be enforcing bylaws regarding noise, parking, cooking... if this was a provincial park, the conservation officers would have kicked them all out long ago...

If there as a specific, attainable agenda, I'd say "Go for it".  But there seems to be no organized effort other than to create chaos...  its not like any gov't official is going to bow to their "demands", and they know this.  Seeing Trump 2024  and other American flags involved in the "protests" across Canada really reveals a lot...

I was referring more to the fact the fundraising dried up and now the organizers of the Ottawa tantrum are possibly being sued.

Letting this drag on for over a week, start up similar hissy fit parades in other cities, and embarrass a country is reprehensible by those who have sat by and done nothing, especially in the nation's capital.

This has been disgraceful and unfortunately, quite revealing as to the alarming amount of dirtbags that reside in Canada.

Yes, Ottawa is way out of control.

Winnipeg, well Mr. Bowman didn't do anything when the indigenous destroyed property this summer, he not going to do anything now.

Toronto and Quebec has dried up really quick... looks like the Winnipeg crew got a delivery of fried chicken from Steinbach... time to start imposing campground restrictions in the downtown...  and mark "Snow routes" and tagging/towing

What is concerning is that the death numbers still stay fairly high, and they seem to be almost all over 80... and there are outbreaks in far too many LTC facilities.  Not sure if we will see the illness/deaths other areas are seeing in kids, we've been pretty good at protecting them so far, but when kids start dying, or getting hospitalized, yo have to start question how we can protect our vulnerable...

I can guarantee you that if kids start dying people would start to take action.

Not so sure... I guess the large majority have accepted that old people are going to die from this, just like they do from pneumonia or other diseases that younger people live through.  I still don't, and think that we need to protect our elders better, but no idea how to get that point accross.

Kids are dying in the US, yet covidiots are demanding masks in schools be banned, and so many other things that could save kids.  Parents are not getting their kids vaccinated.  Misinformationists, like Hannity, are telling their listeners that vaccinated kids are getting sicker than unvaxxed ones.  And again, antivaxxers are citing co-morbidities as the main reason for deaths.  Yes, compromised kids are at most risk, and should be protected from having to attend school, etc.  They need that option.  But now, research is showing increased disease in boys and african american kids.  These are no co-morbidities. 

Yes, I think a few under 10 yr old deaths might open some eyes, and I don't think we have a large population demanding kids go to school without mitigation.  My daughter is 24, on immunosuppressants, and her boyfriend is a schoolteacher.  I don't know when they will get to see each other in person again, because every day, kids in his class or school are testing positive.  They can't risk her getting infected.  Its bad enough she can't work, or go out, now this is even more isolation.  Part of the human cost of this disease.

People in Canada (other than "pseudo-trucker" protesters) generally understand we need to protect our vulnerable if we want to return to "normal".  Unfortunately, too many do not class our kids, and the people exposed to them, as vulnerable...

I get that these "protesters" are done with covid restrictions.  There isn't a person in Canada that does not understand your position now.

But, we are done with this protest.  There is no potential positive resolution to the situation, it is just going to devolve as the saner heads continue to leave, and the radicals have more say in the actions.

They are blocking medical access, they are blocking borders, preventing right minded truckers and citizens from their normal activity.  They are building sentiment against their "cause", if they ever had one, or knew what it was.  Getting Trudeau to quit, or the GG to dissolve the government and appoint Queen Romana the new head of state is not going to happen. 

This is a democracy, they way to change is to get like minded people to work with you to win the election.  If you have a point, and the majority (or even a strong minority in teh right places) agrees with you, then you get to legitimately make the rules.  But I get that's not immediate enough for these kooks.

This "Convoy" is a danger to our society.  They are hurting people, and the economy, with their actions.  This has gone far enough.  These are terrorists, and they need to be stopped.  Our police need to use the laws the rest of us have to abide by to put these hostiles behind bars.
