Well it is a protest, but many are also doing it while committing a bunch of nuisance crimes and they need to stop committing said crimes.

I support peaceful protest, not illegal activity.  My standard is no different with antifa rioters.
Well said, that’s why I don’t take this dufus’ concern serious, or any of the others of the band if merry hypocrites.  These people said nothing during riots when buildings and vehicles were set on fire and burned down.  Now they’re very concerned, like all good concern trolls are right now.

Btw, breaking news, the driver in the Winnipeg attack had his mask on while he was driving.  Kind of a big deal.

They are saying the Senate and GG is a check on the power of the House of Commons/PMO, which is true.  But by convention that's only used in the case of extreme circumstances because they're unelected, and vaccine mandates aren't an extreme circumstance.  The truckers should use the courts.

LOL

What conventions are those?  Please be specific.

Unwritten constitutional conventions, which are part of our constitution.  Much of our constitution is unwritten and are simply followed, because our system is under common law and not civil law.  ie:  The title of "prime minister" and their duties/roles and how they are chosen etc aren't mentioned anywhere in our constitution and are just things we follow.

So if the Senate or GG overrode the House of Commons over something pedestrian we would have a constitutional crisis.

By that standard every truck that is blocking the road is breaking the law so pretty much the whole 'protest' is illegal.

Monday evening, Alberta RCMP report traffic blockade at the Coutts border crossing... again!



and in the summer of 2020 it was with such 'fanfare and bravado' that Alberta Premier Kenney announced the passage of 'Bill 1 - The Critical Infrastructure Defence Act... a bill tailor made to deal with such a blockade.

of course it just gets better with the trucker antics today/this evening blocking traffic flow on the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor and Detroit... the single busiest international land border crossing in North America, accommodating 27% of the approximately $400 billion in annual trade between Canada and the U.S. C'mon Ontario Premier Ford, you've managed to become invisible during the last 10 days of the Ottawa insurrection... will you even say word 1 about the lawlessness occurring at the Ambassador Bridge today/tonight?

per CTV News, "leaked" CPC leader Bergen email in which she advises:
=> senior Conservative MPs not to tell members of the trucker convoy to leave Ottawa and instead
=> to make the protests Prime Minister Trudeau's problem

which became part of the CPC "questioning strategy" during Thursday's HOC Question Period


Quote from: CPC leader Candice Bergen
Where is the olive branch, because Canadians are looking for an olive branch…The government doesn't have to agree. They don't have to even like the protesters and the trucks that are parked outside but they need to provide a solution. So could they please tell Canadians what the solution is to get past this impasse?

of course in recent days none other than Trump has commented on the Ottawa "freedum convoy"... along with Florida Governor DeSantis & Texas' Attorney General vowing to investigate GoFundMe's handling of donations made by Floridians and Texans. And along comes Fox News this last evening where every announcer covered it (yes, Hannity, Tucker and Ingraham all had segments extolling the virtues of the "mandate busting, freedom loving" Canadian truckers!)

I like how the trucker convoy is made out to be some white supremacist protest and yet I've seen a grand total of zero big rigs in Ottawa flying a swastika, confederate flag, or any other racist symbol.  If someone can post an example I'll be waiting...

Trump says he likes peanut butter = OMG peanut butter is racist alt-right and trying to start its own Jan. 6.

Quote from: former U.S. President Trump
The Freedom Convoy is peacefully protesting the harsh policies of far left lunatic Justin Trudeau who has destroyed Canada with insane Covid mandates.

notwithstanding the U.S. has a similar/like national border policy requiring truckers to be vaccinated to enter the U.S., clearly dipshyte Trump doesn't have the understanding to distinguish provincial jurisdictions and COVID restrictions therein. Of course not - it's just Trump being Trump; however, once he did comment it wasn't long after that Republicans and right-wing U.S. media started to similarly chime in. The waldo listed several but forgot to include another profile Republican azzhole, Ted Cruz, who has become one of the more vocal supporters of the 'freedum convoy'. The rest of your blathering isn't worth commenting on! But don't hesitate to actually comment on why so many profile Republicans have offered their support to the Ottawa truckerShyteShow!

That's not true at all. I thought it was pretty dope when they burned down that cop shop for example but don't support torching mom and pop businesses (IDGAF about looting WalMart or whatever though).

But the main point is, even if anyone actually supported the illegal activity tat took place next to the largely peaceful BLM protests but opposes the "trucker" convoy, their hypocrisy doesn't give people like you a free pass to indulge in hypocritical whataboutism of your own. In fact, it makes you just as bad as them. At least someone like Graham is being consistent, you're a toddler who thinks "they started it!" is an intellectual defense.Oh and also you're a compulsive liar.

That never happened.  They wanted the Senate and the GG to uphold the constitution because the Trudeau gov won't abide by it (so they say).

"They didn't want to overthrow the government, they just wanted to replace the democratically elected government with a committee made of the Senate, Governor General and representatives of the convoy!"

I like how you had to specify that the flag had to be attached to a rig so you could duck the fact that Nazi and Confederate flags have been spotted at the protest. In any case, here's a pic of a big rig with the flag of the Three Percenters, a designated terrorist group.
