Canada’s Right Wing Party Tells Truckers To Go Home

The CBC reports:

After publicly supporting the anti-vaccine mandate activists protesting in Ottawa in recent weeks, interim Conservative leader Candice Bergen said Thursday it’s time for the convoy and other protesters blocking two major border crossings to end their demonstrations and go home.

Bergen, who has called the convoy a “passionate, patriotic and peaceful” group of Canadians concerned about freedom at a time of COVID restrictions, said the protesters have made their point to parliamentarians and the Conservative Party will take up their fight in the House of Commons instead.

The anti-mandate protest that started in Ottawa has spread to Windsor and Coutts, Alta., disrupting the flow of goods and crippling Canada-U.S. trade.
