oh my waldo, oh my!

facing charges of mischief, counselling mischief, intimidation, counselling intimidation, counselling obstruction of police and obstructing police, Tamara Lich, one of the principal organizers of the "Trucker Freedom Convoy", is currently out of jail on bail.

that the 'Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms' has confirmed it provided legal assistance and advice in representing the 'Freedom Convoy 2022' in Ottawa, it is only fitting that it awards Ms. Lich the, George Jonas Freedom Award, at a June ceremony in Toronto... special bonus has Rex Murphy as keynote speaker at the event!


Lich arrested for breach of bail conditions!

Poilievre revisionism extraordinaire!



if only PM Trudeau had "listened to the people" says skippy! As in listen to their MOU demands to overturn the 2021 election results in favour of a ruling "committee" of far-right extremists, the Senate and the Governor General... which eventually shifted into a proposal where a core group of "Freedumb Convoy" organizers and their supporters would govern, “with the Conservatives, and the NDP, and the Bloc as a coalition.” This... this is the rabble, the nonsense that the CPC/Poilievre supported. Imagine PM Trudeau ignoring them in favour of invoking the Emergencies Act - imagine!

wait waldo, there's more: Freedom Convoy protesters set to return to Ottawa for Canada Day, stay through summer

freeeeeeeeeeeedom!


Racist, homophobic, misogynistic signs or speech at public Canada Day events 'will not be tolerated': Ottawa Police Service

Quote
The Ottawa Police Service is vowing not to tolerate homophobic, misogynistic, or racist messages — including in speeches, gestures or signs — in public places during this week’s Canada Day events, and said they could lead to criminal charges.
.
“Canada Day [is] a very important day to Canadians. It’s a day where we celebrate our country and all the good things in it. But people … when they come, they need to be lawful. And they need to be respectful of our community,” Bell told board members.

“We know the scars our community feels from the days in the end of January, beginning of February, where there was all of the negative interactions with people who were attending and occupying and illegally protesting within our streets. We’ve heard those. We’ve listened to those. And I want to reassure you that those feelings, that trauma that our community has felt, is front and centre in all of our planning efforts and will be front and centre in our response efforts.”

Four months after the last truck left downtown Ottawa, top Freedom Convoy figures returned to Parliament Hill and met with 20 per cent of the Conservative Party of Canada caucus, according to video reviewed by CTV News.

Quote
On Wednesday, 24 Conservative members attended meetings with convoy spokesperson Tom Marazzo, convoy director of security Daniel Bulford, advisor to former U.S. president Donald Trump Paul Alexander, and Canadian soldier James Topp, who is currently on a march across Canada protesting vaccine mandates.

The organizers held two presentations Wednesday afternoon in a building located in the parliamentary precinct. Alexander said in his presentation that Conservative MP Dean Allison helped the group gain access to the Valour Building. Groups planning to hold presentations on Parliament Hill require a parliamentarian to sponsor them in order to be given permission to access buildings on Parliament Hill and book a room.

LIST OF CONSERVATIVE MPs WHO ATTENDED THE MEETING

    Marilyn Gladu, Arnold Viersen, Dean Allison, James Bezan, Melissa Lantsman, Dan Muys, Ted Falk, Leslyn Lewis,
    Alex Ruff, Jeremy Patzer, Jamie Schmale, Martin Shields, John Barlow, Ryan Williams, Warren Steinley, Damien Kurek,
    Gerald Soroka, Scott Davidson, Chris Warkentin, Corey Tochor, Tako van Popta, Cheryl Gallant, Kerry-Lynn Findlay

Yeah I agree, they should absolutely let those freaks show us who they really are.

per 'The Hill Times': The convoy’s tire tracks are still all over the face of politics



Quote
Another week and a couple more stories about high-profile Conservatives engaging with people connected to the Freedom Convoy. The day before Canada Day, it was Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre marching into Ottawa with veteran James Topp and others connected to the convoy. Then on July 4, CTV News broke a story revealing former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall was speaking with and advising convoy organizer Chris Barber during the winter occupation.

Poilievre—as has been his approach with convoy matters—told media he walked with Topp because he was doing his job. In his own words: “I thought I would give him a greeting and give him a hearing and see if he had any thoughts to share with me, as one of the representatives of the people.” On the surface, it’s a reasonable response to argue that it is part of an elected official’s job to listen. It’s also true. But where it stops being reasonable with Poilievre and others is when the listening stops, and the enabling happens.
.
The problem for Wall, and in turn the federal Conservative Party, is that he allowed himself to be dragged into this in the first place. While there will be some Canadians who will have no issue with Wall’s involvement, the political opponents of the Conservatives will view this as a present. Further proof, they will argue, of how many Conservative leaders have lost their way and are becoming the party of the disgruntled riffraff. Yes, a dismissive term, but the competitors of the Conservatives will be much less generous.

It will be interesting to see if Wall offers a hearty set of public comments. Wall is a skilled communicator and possesses political authenticity. He will know he has a brand problem here, not just the Conservative Party. The Freedom Convoy may have left Ottawa, but it is still shaping the Canadian political landscape.

National Observer: The CPC is now the Convoy Party of Canada - Max Fawcett | July 7th 2022

Quote
Ottawa residents were understandably concerned about a Canada Day repeat of the anti-vaccine protests that gridlocked their city’s downtown at the start of this year. But while our nation’s capital managed to survive the festivities mostly unscathed, the so-called convoy’s creeping takeover of this country’s official Opposition continues apace.

Leadership race front-runner Pierre Poilievre made that abundantly clear last week when he decided to march with James Topp, the controversial far-right leader of the convoy’s latest iteration. Far from turning his back on the more extremist elements of that movement, Poilievre seems determined to hug them as close as possible.
.
Indeed, based on the convoy’s popularity among the current Conservative membership, Poilievre’s Canada Day stunt may not be as politically suicidal as it might seem from afar. As EKOS pollster Frank Graves noted, his data shows that while 68 per cent of Canadians oppose the convoy, that figure drops to 30 per cent among CPC voters, with nearly twice as many (55 per cent) supporting it. That ratio of support to opposition is only eclipsed by People’s Party of Canada voters, whom Poilievre is almost certainly targeting in both the leadership race and beyond.
.
They see the convoy’s fans as a valuable source of donations and political support, and they’re apparently willing to overlook the talk about overthrowing a democratically elected government and charging the prime minister with treason in order to get it.

That relationship is only going to get cozier if Poilievre becomes the one in charge, an outcome that seems practically inevitable at this point.

If nothing else, this should put to rest once and for all the notion that there is a moderate version of the Conservative Party of Canada just waiting to emerge.

Instead, a resounding victory by Poilievre would almost certainly mean a turn further to the right, towards the sort of Fox News-style, nonsense-on-steroids politics that defined the convoy and seems to intrigue its enablers.

Putting this here because the principal in this story is honky-adjacent:
Quote
A failed political candidate who is the daughter of a controversial former Ontario MPP has been ordered to pay nearly $100,000 to a former friend for posting defamatory tweets claiming the Carleton University instructor had drugged and slept with her students.

Chelsea Hillier, who has run, unsuccessfully, for public office at both the provincial and federal level, was ordered to delete the offending tweets and post a retraction to her Twitter account for 60 days, saying the social media posts were false. She was ordered to pay $85,000 in damages, plus $12,485 in costs to Esther Post, who taught Hillier at Carleton more than a decade ago.

Also, incredible photo choice here, really drives home how busted these people are.

Anyone else really alarmed that a bunch of low-education truck drivers brought the nation's capital to its knees for weeks, paralyzing all 3 levels of government?

You'd think the convoy was taking live hostages for something.  Be careful....they have loud horns!
