End when?  Ever?  Be more specific son.  Regardless, it absolutely IS Justinís fault.  He caused it, and he could end it today, if he just backs down from his unscientific meaningless trucker mandate. 

you're so misinformed - again, there is no such thing as a "trucker mandate"; rather, as of Jan 15 the prior exemption for essential working truckers was rescinded.

...elderly man is wrestled to the ground by multiple police officers for honking a car horn.  Not a ticket  or a fine.  This is Canada now in 2022.
lol oh so now you care about police brutality? GTFO.
Not to mention his link text mischaracterizes what happened.

No, he did not get wrestled to the ground for honking a horn. He honked, the police asked to see his ID (understandable, considering he was likely violating noise bylaws and would be subject to a ticket.) He decided to flee , the guy resists and the sum total of his time "on the ground" is when one knee touches the pavement.

hmmm... does that mean any senior can commit a crime and can't be touched if they decide to just walk away?

Honestly the cops should have warned him and let him go, no need to flex on a doddering old git.

Can't wait until the truckers create their own CHAZ/CHOP so politicians will wuss out and order cops to do nothing just like in Portland.

I mean to be fair there's not a helluva lot he can do. If he cracks down, it just feeds into the mass psychosis of the covidiot crowd and probably gets someone killed, if he doesn't he looks more and more ineffectual. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I think it would be great if he waits them out and they are eventually ignored. 

I understand Bergen said in the H of C that the barricades must come down

Maybe she should have mentioned it when she was meeting convoy participants for pizza.

Ha ha!!!!

From: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/freedom-convoy-2022-donations-frozen-give-send-go-1.6347345
The Superior Court of Justice has granted a request from the Ontario government to freeze access to millions of dollars donated through online fundraising platform GiveSendGo to the truckers convoy protesting COVID-19 restrictions

And remember, this is coming from the government of Doug Ford, a guy many demonize as some sort of right-wing populist nutcase. Yet he's willing to fight against the truckers.

Let's see if we can figure out all the gov's options:

1.  freeze assets, seize their gas and food etc, give out fines, and wait hoping they go away while parts of the country's transportation infrastructure remain blockaded.
2.  give in to their demands
3.  start threatening arrests and then make arrests and get the army to tow the trucks away.  Possible risk of violence, martyrdom, and further unforeseen rightwing responses.
