Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and his family have fled Ottawa after the massive trucker convoy began arriving in the capital on Friday night.
According to Israeli sources, the Trudeau family have been moved to a safe place in the US.
Tens of thousands of truckers are parked in front of Canadian Parliament, saying they will not leave unless Trudeau resigns or drops all mandates. No negotiation. They are prepared to stay there for weeks or months.
Note in the video that there is a wall around the Parliament Building, just as there is now a wall around the White House in DC.
Farmers have now joined the truckers and are driving their tractors toward the Capital, with 67,000 truckers from the US reportedly en route to Ottawa, as well.
Citing its powers under the COVID state of emergency of March 2020, the provincial government of Nova Scotia has declared it illegal to finance, organize, aid or participate in a truck convoy, as well as to stand along the roadside in support of a truck convoy, with violators facing $10,000 fines.
The MacDonald-Cartier bridge connecting Ontario to Québec was partially closed due to this planned protest.
Meanwhile, the Pfizer building in Paris was surrounded by a crowd of protestors on Saturday, shouting at Macron and Pfizer executives, calling them “Assassins!”
