now we are talking ideas ^^ based in reality

but really you had to look at the whole thing in context

Trudeau would have been privy to the people with guns in Coutts and this had to be a big warning

what was really going on and how far did an insurrection go for the emergencies act to make sense ?

With the emergencies act having been instituted for only 30 days and being rescinded well before that just the other day, I was wondering if this was an intentional move by the Libs to bait the Cons into foaming at the mouth over the whole thing to help expose the underbelly of the party. Realistically, they didn't need to call the emergency measures act and the police movements could have been conducted without it. 

Have you watched the video of Elizabeth May explaining why she voted yes on implementing the Emergencies Act?

The convoy was a foreign funded disruption of the Canadian economy. The very definition of what the Act was intended to cover.

Was it a fun party with bouncey castles and suanas, good old hard working Canadains trying to git that nancy boy Trudeau to go away

OR did Canada lose control of its borders in at least 2 places being the ambassador bridge & armed the insurrection at Coutts, did Canada lose control of its seat of government

all financed by foriegn money

depends on how you want to spin it IMO but i disagree the emergency measures act was an over reaction cuz nobody had any idea where it was going

Also alot of them crayon eaters were saying they were ready to die ( quitters dude) so there were threats of violence

I'm still amazed that nobody got killed

Doesnt ^^ paint the average convoy goer in a positive light but a pretty accurate accounting of events and nothing really new

With the Ukraine situation reporting on the convoy has almost dissapeared from the news cycle but here ^^ is an artical on the rise of Populism

I am in Victoria for the weekend. Seen a few pick ups with flags driving around. No honking, no one gives a shit... It's pathetic. Appears Ram pick ups are the choice of vehicle for these guys. All makes sense now.

Saw a small group of convoyers in Alberni waving flags in front of the Walmart, a bunch more driving around in their lifted full size diesels with flags mounted in the box. Stereotype gonna stereotype I guess.

The trucker’s blockade that shut down the Canada-US border cost Ottawa billions in lost trade, seriously damaged the image of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and showed that less than 100 ZZ Top look-alike truckers could hold Canada to ransom.

The Convoy's have / had not really impacted my day to day so I watched with mild interest. Primarily with a chuckle at their seeming inability to not shoot themselves in the foot in front of cameras.

As a proud new Canadian what has really annoyed me of late is that they have hijacked the Canadian flag...

Where I should be thinking "look at this legend supporting our athletes, troops, country etc..." you now think faarrk me he/she is one of them.....

also heh heh in the same article

Meanwhile, back in darkest Ukraine, pro- and anti-government factions are trading occasional shells while the US government in Washington claims war is imminent.  The facts on the ground do not support such alarmism.

You really need to actually read this dogshit you post.  He claimed that Putin wasn't up to anything and Biden just wanted a distraction.  He wrote this 10 days ago.  The guy is a fucking genius.  LMAO.
