46% of Canadians sympathize with trucker convoy, but many disagree with their tactics: poll

How much does this matter now ?  Are the Conservatives going to try to make another Convoy ?  No.

Well they didn't did they. They plugged the area with trucks, leaned on their horns all hours of the day, stunk up the neighbourhood with diesel fumes, forced businesses to close and cost people their jobs for three weeks. They had their fun now f**k off.

Stupid pricks are still  jamming 911 lines
But even people protesting with just signs have been arrested.  And the media has been forbidden to cover the arrests closer than a block away.  How can you support this kind of behaviour in good conscience?  Lol @ forced businesses to close.  Nice gaslighting after being a proponent of multiple months long shutdowns.  You have absolutely no credibility with your selective outrage of business closings.  Don’t worry though, just wait until the weather gets warmer in the spring.  There’ll be tens of thousands of people in Ottawa.

The Conservatives didn’t make this convoy, so I’m not sure where you’re getting another one.

Well apparently 46% of Canadians more or less disagree with the mandates, and the mandates are still policy as far as I know, so it seems relevant.

Ok ... do the Conservatives have any sway with The Maverick Party though ?

But 71% also say these folks should go home. Most of the mandates are provincial anyway.

...sympathize with trucker convoy

ya ya, says the polled ignorant, uneducated and freedumb howlers who have no understanding of the issue(s) or what 'downtown' Ottawa residents have had to deal with for the past 3 weeks. Where's the sympathy from protester supporters for the residents harmed? In the real-world, 90% vaccinated truckers continued... continue... to do their jobs supporting the Canadian economy, supporting Canadians and contributing positively to society! A couple of prior images posted that speak to those real-world 90% vaccinated truckers:

It’s a shocking split, arguably the single most important factor in the protests, and much of it originates in the fractured way information travels online. Convoy supporters are getting their news from a tangle of Facebook groups, Telegram channels, and random influencers, which is all then amplified and expanded by right-wing broadcasters like Carlson, The Daily Caller, or Canadian right-wing media network Rebel News. These channels promote a sanitized version of movements like the Freedom Convoy, amplifying its hashtags and turning its obscure extremist leaders into celebrities.
.
Paris Marx, a PhD candidate based in Canada and host of the podcast Tech Won’t Save Us, told The Verge that the Freedom Convoy’s connections to the country’s far-right significantly outweigh its connections to actual Canadian truckers.

“It’s been pretty well-documented at this point that the Freedom Convoy has had connections to the Canadian far-right from the beginning, including having been behind the initial GoFundMe fundraiser,” he said. “It also never really represented a broad swath of truckers — 90% of whom are vaccinated and whose trade organizations distanced themselves from, if not outright opposed, the convoy.”

.
But based on Facebook metrics, the core of the Freedom Convoy was never really anything more than a small collection of local conspiracy theorists who were then suddenly given a megaphone by America’s powerful right-wing disinformation machine. Their campaign was first supercharged by Facebook’s algorithm, which currently favors content shared within local groups, and was then blasted out into every feed and screen possible by ravenous conservative tabloids. American right-wing publisher The Daily Wire, founded by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, latched on to the story at the end of January and published 66 articles featuring the keyword “convoy” between January 28th and January 31st. And the most popular story of theirs from this time period actually promotes a Facebook group that would eventually get shut down by the platform after barely four days for repeatedly violating Facebook’s policies around QAnon.

Amplifying small right-wing political movements like this has become a powerful piece of the conservative toolkit — particularly in the time of COVID. Case in point, over the last month, Fox News aired over eight hours of programming about the Freedom Convoy, warning that an American version was on its way.

U.S. Congress asks Facebook: What role did fake overseas accounts have in promoting Canada convoys?

American politicians are demanding details from Facebook about how many fake online accounts created by foreign actors helped promote Canada's convoy protests.

Facebook told NBC News earlier this month that it had deleted some pro-convoy groups run by overseas actors. They did not say how many and from where.

Something tells me you aren't as offended by blackface as you pretend to be.

Probably Vladimir Putin right! 😂🤣

yours is such a casual ignoring dismissal of the purposeful manipulating & misinformation tactics followed by Facebook groups, Telegram channels, and random influencers in their promotion of the freedumbConvoy... all of which was then further amplified and expanded by your favoured cadre of right-wing & alt-right "personalities" - you know, your peeps!
