Convoy has a high school in Steinbach under lockdown, Emerson closed, and the Ottawa leader is talking about taking the convoy on a tour of local schools to "let the children see the convoy". 

So many countries have stood up to the hooligans and shut them down before they had a chance to start.  Yet we are letting them disrupt society, claiming they representing the fewer than 15% who are as of yet unvaxxed, and I bet even among those, they have a small following.

If they had a noble cause, like BLM or Orange Shirt, or even global warming, ancient forests, indigenous land claims, or banning the designated hitter, there would be some rhyme or reason to allow them a LIMITED window for their protest.  But other than disruption, and the attempted coup of overturning the present legally elected prime minister and replacing him with their so called queen, this "protest" has no standing, no permits and no rights.  They have terrorized neighborhoods, to the point of arson and noise pollution, issued threats against "main stream media" that have caused them to remove logos from their vehicles, and congregated in dangerous ways, including the illegal movement and storage of fuels. 

It makes me sick that they are not being shut down, to even the minorest extent of the law.  Given parking tickets.  Towed from snow zones. 

And now, a planned "event" for "maskless shopping" at Polo Park on Saturday...  putting our brave, underpaid and overworked front line retail workers at risk, and for what?  To make a point that was made months ago, and has no chance of being agreed to?  Are they just waiting for the provinces to do their scheduled roll backs of mitigation policies, and then they will jump up and take credit?

I'm tired of it, I'm sure truckers are tired of being lumped in with these terrorists, unfortunately until either they get shut down or the money from the far right gets turned off completely, these idiots will continue... not realizing that every day, they are not converting people to their side, but instead rallying them to the other.

Go home.

The last two weeks have been nothing short of a colossal embarrassment for Canada.

Which is exactly what the international far right terrorist groups funding these "truckers" were looking for... they have destabilized Canada far more effectively than ISIS or any other terror groups could, and for a fraction of the cost.  It is truly sad that we have people in Canada willing to do the bidding of these far right groups.

She says it's allowed to continue for 4 more weeks, then it will politely be asked to leave.

Manitoba has effectively called an Endemic for March 15...

Not sure when i will stop wearing a mask in public places, but it sure won't be Mar 15.  And much as people think ending vaccine mandates, capacity limits and masks will help restaurants, I'm thinking Feb 13 might be my last restaurant visit for quite a while...  and I really feel sorry for restaurant staff who will now have to work in crowded places potentially full of infected partons.   

I think most restaurant workers will continue to mask, for their own safety.  And you can bet a lot of retailers will keep mask mandates up, at least for their workers.  I really can't abide my staff getting sick/dying because they get infected.  Plexi stays up, and air filters / UV keeps rocking. What do you do if someone shows up obviously symptomatic? 

I still do not understand how wearing a mask and getting a jab infringes so much on people's freedom.  I don't understand how so many people have been assimilated into this mob of misinformation.  And now New Zealand, land of 53 COVID deaths TOTAL (5 mil population), is getting hit by convoy fever.  https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/new-zealand-police-arrest-covid-truckers-canada-freedom-convoy-protest-rcna15667


It is just sad...

I really, really hope that my fears do not come to pass... but I concerned for the "at risk" people having to deal with this new phase of life, including my daughter.

We've ended masks mandates before and people still wore them, so we'll see.

I am ok going to 100% capacity. I'm not a huge fan of getting rid of vax passports. But I think getting rid of masks is a bad idea at this time. It's such an easy thing to do and in all honesty probably goes further to prevent spread than vaccines. Maybe someone has the numbers for that.

Likely the ability to win hearts and minds with vaccines is passed and whoever was willing to get it already did (unfortunately).

I agree with Jesse that a good amount of people will still wear masks and likely some retailers and restaurants will too.

I am happy to get back to normal but any easing should really be tied to hospital numbers (which are/will come down, but they haven't yet). This is of course just a political decision.

I think you?re overestimating the concerns of most people. In fact, I think people will be more willing to go to a game at full capacity instead of half. The atmosphere is the main reason you go to live sports. Anecdotal, but I have zero interest in going to a game with capacity limits.

Status quo for us. We will masks in public for awhile yet. We agree that hospital numbers need to be better, also daily deaths are still to high.

It sickens me these cowards have now brought children into the protest to hide behind them. What a bunch of moral-less, spineless cowards.

The self proclaimed Co-organizer is Caleb Brown who is not even a truck driver. CB Custom Carpentry. I wonder how he would like it if this was happening outside his business or his home.

I hate that idiots all over the world are using these idiots as inspiration to mount sedition in other countries.  I thought that the US had the corner on that market. 

Watching the coverage on CNN or worse, hearing it on FOX or when I'm listening to Patriot for a giggle in the car (I have 5 comedy channels, then Patriot on my presets...) Canadians look like idiots.  The protesters look like idiots, the police not doing anything look like idiots, our politicians look like idiots.  And the foreign actors financing these pawns are laughing at the value they are getting for the tiny investment they've made...
