Youíre teaching your son to be a good serf of the government.  Hand all of your rights over to them, what a great life lesson.  All for muh secuuurity

The people blockading the borders don't give a crap about anyone's rights.

Thatís great, but Iím speaking from a freedom standpoint.  Many have said so.  Ití also applies to society as a whole. 

This is a meaningless word salad.

Just because somebody is vaccinated doesnít mean they support government mandates.  Not everyone is a chin diaper wearing cultist like you people.

You claimed that ending vaccine mandates has widespread support among truckers, so prove it. Also , again, the protest isn't about the trucker mandates.

Thatís your opinion.  We can agree to disagree.

So is your Marxist speak.  Itís meaningless, especially in 2022 Canada.

If 46% of all Canadians sympathize, what percentage do you think the number is of just truckers?  It's not difficult to assume.

It's a fact, they have cost companies billions and put thousands out of work including many of the 90% of truckers who are still trying to do their jobs and are stuck at border crossings or having to lose time and spend thousands more on fuel to get around the blockades. They are like kids having tantrums and breaking things, they don't have a plan and don't care what it costs or who will have to clean it up.

Nope, Marx is probably even more relevant now than he was when he wrote. The distinction between owners and workers is an important one no matter how much the former might like to cosplay as the latter.

1. That doesn't say anything about mandates, specifically.
2. 46% is not a majority
3. Vaccine mandates consistently enjoy majority support of Canadians, no reason to assume it's any different among truckers.

This poll was published yesterday

If, however, the goal was to build support for their demands to end pandemic-related restrictions Ė it has backfired utterly.

New public opinion data from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute shows after more than two weeks of unrest, Canadians are now more likely to oppose measures sought by protesters.

Quote
As a result, these data show a notable shift in sentiment from before the protests began, when just over half of Canadians indicated they were ready to consider an end to pandemic-related restrictions. In the weeks since they inserted themselves directly into the conversation about restrictions, the protesters have seen the pendulum swing against their point of view. One-in-three Canadians (33%) say that they support the convoyís demands of ending all public health restrictions and vaccine mandates.

Even less support is found for the tactics taken by the protesters, who have brought downtown Ottawa to a standstill and until this past weekend were stymieing $300 million dollars a day in trade between the U.S. and Canada by blockading the Ambassador Bridge. One-quarter say the strategy of the protesters is something they support (27%), while seven-in-ten (70%) disagree:

1.  I don't even know who that is, you seem to be very invested in this for some reason.   
2.  I'm for ending the vaccine mandates in regards to truckers, it's not backed by any science.  The vast majority of truckers are vaccinated, and they spend 20 hours a day in their trucks.   It's a meaningless mandate.
1. Spokesperson.  Held a press conference last week I think.
2. You don't seem to have anything to say about the Convoy, other than implying they're disorganized I guess.
