From Mayor Jim Watson of Ottawa, Ontario Canada
“We will always defend the right of citizens to assemble in peaceful protest, but what we have seen over the past four days is indefensible…The catalogue of outrages is long, well-documented and, frankly, appalling: flying swastikas and confederate battle flags; desecrating memorials to our veterans and to national hero Terry Fox; stealing food from the homeless; and threatening local residents and businesses.
“Whatever legitimacy this ‘protest’ may have had has been squandered by these images being beamed out of Ottawa.”
Yes Mr. Mayor, but who is actually doing these things? Could it be a small fringe of Trudeau’s Antifa mob of thugs? I mean they have been known to do this sort of thing before; leaving a roll-on roll-off bin filled with rocks right among the trucks…clearly a move practiced before in BLM etc., events, and a ready supply of missiles for them to throw, but this time there were too many cameras pointed at them. I am curious to know which police officer(s) allowed this bin to be placed there and which detachment (s)he (they) belonged to. Most likely the RCMP, or perhaps the OPP.
As for stealing food from the homeless, wake up!! there are tables, even flat bed trucks set up with food and it is being gladly given to the hungry and homeless ie those from whom you accuse them of stealing. Perhaps someone has misled you on the difference between stealing and donating, and perhaps there should not be any homeless and hungry in Canada’s national capital specially in a cold winter.
So then your other suggestions of misdoings fall under the same description of really? You have proof it was truckers not Trudeau’s antifa buddies? I know it sounds better if you can give these reasons for your declaration of an emergency but it looks very wishy-washy to me.
It really is time you watched yourself on some of these interviews you have given to CBC to see how ridiculous you appear to be. Even the CBC could do nothing to clean up your image of a man out of his depth clearly wanting someone to step in and help him.
For instance, why did you leave it to a private citizen to get an injunction against the horns? Never thought of it eh? I know I am not there but I have seen no images of any trucks flying either a swastika or confederate flag, perhaps you could point me to a site where I can see them? I am sure if it was true it would have been all over Trudeau’s Covid Broadcasting Corporation’s news programs with appropriate condemnation, and yet I saw nothing there.
As you sleep in your nice warm bed do you give a thought to those who only want their freedom back sleeping in cold bunks in their trucks because you are stealing their diesel? Thought not as you only want them gone and are not interested in setting up a meeting with anyone who can give them back what they want but that has been stolen….FREEDOM, and really is that too much to ask for even in the fractured Canada of today?
