Large Southern Ontario Rally & Convoy Commemorate Truckers’ Freedom Convoy
About 300 people gathered on the bridge on Centennial Road over the Queen Elizabeth Way and in a surrounding parking lot to commemorate the day in 2022 that the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy reached Ottawa to protest the COVID mandates and other attacks on freedom. The enthusiasm and friendliness of the freedom fighters was amazing. The battle against the ongoing assault on freedoms — threats to free speech on the Internet, more loss of gun rights, and the threatened theft of the right to earn a living in agriculture, mining and oil and natural gas industries — is not over. There was a sea of “Fuck Trudeau” flags and banners.
This group was joined by a convoy of at least 100 vehicles from the Niagara Peninsula. The two groups merged and headed off to a Vaughan Mills north of Toronto.
Hamilton is generally known as a leftist stronghold. Yet, this past week Hamilton has seen several and loud and spirited protests outside the downtown hotel where the Trudeau cabinet was meeting. Cabinet ministers, surrounded by a phalanx of police, looked shaken as they passed through a vocal crowd of freedom fighters Tuesday night.
