Canada ‘Freedom Convoy’ appears peaceful and respectful despite Trudeau claim of ‘hateful rhetoric’
(Worthy News) – Images from Canada’s “Freedom Convoy” rally to protest COVID-19 restrictions over the weekend show an energetic but peaceful rally – despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s claim that the protesters are “a small fringe minority” expressing “hateful rhetoric” and “violence toward fellow citizens.”
Connor LaRocque, an entrepreneur who said he became inspired to attend the rally after witnessing the convoy pass through his hometown on the way to Ottowa, the Canadian capital, told Fox News Digital that he felt “very safe” and likened the environment to a football game.
“It was all peace and love the entire event,” he said. “There had to have been over 100,000 people there, and it was all good vibes.” [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
Justin Trudeau says he will not meet with truckers protesting vaccine mandates
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced during a Monday address that he will not meet with the Canadian protest trucking convoy due to “hateful rhetoric.”
Trudeau was asked during the briefing if he would be meeting with the leaders of the trucking convoy. Though he initially dodged the question, he said the reason he would not meet with the group was that he would not go anywhere near protests that express “hateful rhetoric” and “violence toward fellow citizens.”
“Canadians know where I stand,” Trudeau said. “This is a moment for responsible leaders to think carefully about where they stand and who they stand with.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
