The Post Millennial: "Mayor Jim Watson of Ottawa has declared a state of emergency in relation to the Freedom Convoy, which has protested in the city for over a week. "Declaring a state of emergency reflects the serious danger and threat to the safety and security of residents posed by the ongoing demonstrations and highlights the need for support from other jurisdictions and levels of government," the statement reads."
The authoritarians in our midst are afraid that the Freedom Convoy is working—that Canadians are waking up to the usurpation of their rights and freedoms, and realizing who seeks to gain from continued medical tyranny.
The 'state of emergency' isn't for Ottawa. After all, the protesters are peaceful. In fact, THERE IS LESS CRIME IN OTTAWA since the protests began. No, the state of emergency is for Watson and his ilk: for the statists who want Canadians dependent upon big government; for the leftists who want to curb Canadian mobility rights; and for the Liberal Party's apparatchiks in the Canadian mainstream media.
