I missed posting this one the first time around, but with the Emergencies Act inquiry in full swing it suddenly feels relevant again.
I don’t live in Ottawa and wasn’t visiting while all this was happening, but basically everything I read, saw and heard has me questioning whether or not this really is a fake story. Ottawa Police issue apology to protesters for any inconvenience they may have caused
OTTAWA – The Ottawa Police Service issued a statement apologising to the protesters that descended on the nation’s capital this past weekend for any trouble their presence may have caused to members of the convoy.
“While it may seem from early reports that demonstrators were able to act with total impunity, we want to express our regret if any of our officers got in their way.”
“These demonstrators are concerned citizens who are worried for their safety and well-being, unlike the residents of Ottawa who keep reporting complaints to us,” said Cst. Alvin Leapyear. “For the time being, this demonstration against lockdowns is why we are advising all residents to stay at home and for businesses to remain closed.”
