I looked in on a number of different live feeds coming out of downtown Ottawa yesterday and they all look the same: lots of aimless wandering, shouts of "freedom", and yelling at cops. It looked to be a lame attempt at Freedom Convoy 2 but definitely lacked the energy and purpose of the original. I got the feeling that many were just spoiling for a fight so they could cry about how their rights were being trampled. Ho fukkin hum.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Ottawa police make 7 arrests and tow 24 vehicles during Rolling Thunder bike rally weekendCNN) Ottawa police arrested seven people and towed 24 vehicles Friday as the Rolling Thunder bike rally got underway in the Canadian capital.
In a statement, police did not mention the rally by name but said they were responding to "demonstrations" in the city.
Residents have been on edge ahead of the event following the so-called Freedom Convoy protests earlier this year that lasted weeks.
Ottawa police said they arrested at least one person in the downtown area Saturday on the second day of a biker rally in the Canadian capital -- bringing the number of arrests associated with the event to at least eight since Friday.amp.cnn.com

That's the beauty of making everything illegal. Once you've done that, you can use selective enforcement to make allegedly neutral criminal and public-safety laws into political weapons.
I've seen people with Fuck Trudeau flags on their cars not realizing everyone else is laughing at them.

The words “no haven for fascism” were painted on the front of the Capital City Bikers’ Church on Carillon Street in Vanier. Another message painted on the side of the church said “Fu** off fascists.”
Ottawa Police said the “hate-motivated mischief” at the church was reported just before 7 a.m. on Sunday.
Live from the Shed, one of the organizers of the “Rolling Thunder” weekend, posted a video Sunday morning criticizing the vandalism.
Dave, the spokesperson behind Live from the Shed, said those who committed the vandalism is directly responsible, but he also blamed governments. “Governments have created an environment of hate and division where certain people are being categorized by our government, by our mainstream media, as dangerous,” he said in the video.
“It’s not like it’s directly the government’s fault, but they’ve created this climate where it’s OK to hate certain types of people. It’s OK to discriminate against certain types of people. When our government is saying that these people are chauvinists, that they’re racists, it creates justification for this kind of thing.”
The only hate-motivated crime reported during the “Rolling Thunder” weekend was against the bikers, he said.

'Rolling Thunder' Day 3: Police investigate hate-motivated graffiti at bikers church — Ottawa CitizenOttawa Police are investigating "hate-motivated mischief" after graffiti was scrawled on a church where a service is being held Sunday morning as part of the "Rolling Thunder" weekend.apple.news
….& this is for the approximately 800 bikers that where coming to Ottawa this weekend to lay a wreath at the war memorial in their own nation’s capital.
Narrative is that the truckers ( protesters ) are far right extremists with the over throw of government in mind . Such sedition shall not be tolerated , bloody conservatives .It seems to me that the prior demonstrations, yes the ones that Trudeau knelt down at, set a precident. Why should those people be allowed to carry on the way they did, yet the truckers protesters were dealt with the way they were?
Can't have it both ways.
…& it might be argued that thunder bay is more central geographically too…. But Winnipeg would already have some of the infrastructure needed to make it the capital of the nation, and perhaps even a capital city open to all Canadians.Winnipeg is a good idea for the capital. Most people already don't like Winnipeg so it is off to a good start.
Well, if you want the true centre of the universe ... it should be Toronto.…& it might be argued that thunder bay is more central geographically too…. But Winnipeg would already have some of the infrastructure needed to make it the capital of the nation, and perhaps even a capital city open to all Canadians.
To far for the bureaucrats to travel from Hull .Queen Victoria chose Ottawa because it was centrally located between the cities of Montreal and Toronto, and was along the border of Ontario and Quebec (the centre of Canada at the time). It was also far from the American border, making it safer from attacks.
It’s arguable now that it is no longer the centre (or center) of Canada and no longer the capital for all Canadians, but only for those approved by the NDP/Liberal Party.
On that note, where Geographically should Canada’s Capital & Centre (or Center) of Government be located? Looking at a map of Canada, I’m guessing Winnipeg would fill that roll geographically and is still a Capital City of a province so would already have the beginning of the infrastructure needed for a national capital city.

Winnipeg would be closer to being the centre of the nation for ALL Canadians as opposed to just “Central Canada”, & perhaps even more inviting for ALL Canadians as opposed to just the select chosen ones currently approved to go there….as it sounds like many recently are told to leave Ottawa and never come back because of their beliefs, etc….
