If it's an illegal protest like the ones earlier this year, sure. Sad it had to get to this, but truckers be dumb.

Ottawa police say they're ready to shut down Canada Day occupation attempts​

Ottawa city officials say they are prepared for a "unique" Canada Day, with plans to keep anti-government protests from turning into another occupation.

"We've developed our plans in the shadow of the unlawful protests and Rolling Thunder event. We've been speaking with community members and businesses and we're very aware of the lingering trauma and concern about what they're hearing after those events."

Bell said officers will allow legal protests while shutting down illegal activities, including setting up structures or speakers without a permit and the threat of occupation, like on downtown streets in the winter.

How, exactly, is a peaceful protest illegal in Canada? When they're protesting a racist, misogynist wannabe dictator known as Socks "Blackface" McGroper?

Racist, misogynistic dictators tend to frown on people protesting their bullshit. No wonder you support him.

There are no illegal protests in a free country.

There are, almost inevitably, some members of a protesting crowd who do illegal things. Properly, they should be arrested and held to account for their actions. If your cops can't handle (or understand) the task, get better cops.

So anyway, let's hope for a fun Canada day instead of another illegal protest/convoy/redneck rampage.

You mean like the one the leftist scum had in Winnipeg last Canada Day? Rampaging away and toppling statues. Funny how you weren't whining like the leftard bitch-boy you are about illegal protests then.
