Justin Trudeau gives warning to the Freedom Truckers that crackdown is coming after he called for a late-night meeting with his cabinet ministers.
This is because it’s crippling Canada and disrupting the elites in Ottawa from getting to their city restaurants.
Meanwhile, old dementia Joe wants to share the limelight and urges Trudeau to act against the protesters.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ready to “respond with whatever it takes” to end the Freedom Convoy following a series of late-night meetings with opposition leaders, key Cabinet ministers, and senior officials.
The Canadian leader has been under intense pressure from not only politicians in his own country but also from the White House to end the demonstrations against vaccine mandates that have clogged the main arteries into major Canadian cities and blocked multiple bridges, crippling cross-border business.
“The prime minister and ministers will continue to work closely with all orders of government and local authorities to respond with whatever it takes to help provinces and municipalities end the blockades and bring the situation under control,” his office said in a statement following Thursday’s meetings.
U.S. officials have urged their Canadian counterparts to use federal powers to put an end to the protest.
A White House official said on Thursday that President Joe Biden is “being regularly briefed” on the protests.
No wonder why, it’s the Biden administration urging JT.
Ontario’s premier declared a state of emergency Friday in reaction to the truck blockades in Ottawa and at the US border and said he will urgently press for new legislation cracking down on those who interfere with the free flow of goods and people.
Since Monday, scores of truck drivers protesting Canada’s COVID-19 restrictions and railing against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have bottled up the Ambassador Bridge connecting Windsor to Detroit. And hundreds of others have paralyzed downtown Ottawa over the past two weeks.
Nelson Wiseman, a political science professor at the University of Toronto said, “American legislators are freaking out, and rightfully so the pressure is now being exerted by the White House on Trudeau to act more decisively.”
