‘Fringe minority’ in truck convoy with ‘unacceptable views’ don’t represent Canadians: Trudeau
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the “fringe minority” heading to Ottawa in a truck convoy that hold “unacceptable views” don’t represent the way most Canadians feel.He made the comments in a press conference Wednesday evening, on the heels of Global News reports that far-right and white nationalist groups see the convoy as an opportunity. Far-right groups hope trucker protest will be Canada’s ‘January 6th’  Organizers of the truck convoy have been adamant that these extremist voices do not represent the position of the protestors.“The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa, who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing, do not represent the views of Canadians,” Trudeau said.“(Canadians) who have been there for each other, who know that following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values as a country.”He added that “close to 90 per cent” of truckers in Canada “are vaccinated.”Tamara Lich, an organizer of the truck convoy, said in a video posted to the convoy’s Facebook page that the most extreme voices in the movement do not reflect the position of the protesters.“As you know, we are on our way to Ottawa to hold a peaceful protest.

Expect traffic delays as convoy protest reaches London on Thursday: OPP
convoy of truckers and supporters en route to Ottawa to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates is scheduled to launch its southwestern Ontario route on Thursday morning. Trucker convoy organizer calls for ‘peaceful protest’ without ‘violence’ or ‘threats’ Convoys travelling from Sarnia and Windsor are set to meet at the Flying J Travel Center on Highbury Avenue South at around 11 a.m.Organizers say the so-called “freedom convoy” will stick around for at least an hour before heading eastbound on Highway 401 toward Drumbo and eventually stopping in Kingston for the day.While the convoy was originally set to meet in London at 8 a.m., organizers announced an updated time of arrival on Wednesday afternoon.There’s no word on how large the crowd will be in London, but provincial police will be on hand to monitor the protest.“What we want is for the demonstrators to be safe, we want people who may gather to watch the convoy go through to be safe and we want those who are on the road with the demonstrators as motorists to be safe as well,” said Derek Rogers, the regional media relations coordinator for West Region OPP.“We will have a significant number of officers in the area to maintain an orderly flow and to ensure that everybody remains safe.” As trucker convoy rolls to Ottawa, grocery stores say supply issues have ‘started to ease’ Rogers says drivers should expect delays on Highway 401 when the convoy arrives, as well as on any roads that converge on the 401.On top of the potential for heavy traffic, drivers should also be mindful of the weather.
