Ottawa Police arrested at least two top organizers behind the Freedom Convoy protests against Covid-19 restrictions on Thursday, as the Canadian government continues its attempts to shut down the humanitarian demonstration.

Organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber were arrested after Ottawa Police received fabricated emergency powers from Trudeau and worked to shut the protests in Canada’s capital down.

Footage showed organizer Chris Barber being arrested by police as he walked down the street before he was placed into a police vehicle and driven away. The bank accounts of protesters were frozen by authorities.

Organizer Tamara Lich was also arrested later in the day. The charges against the two organizers are currently unknown. Interim Ottawa Police Chief Steve Bell had warned on Thursday that a crackdown on protesters was imminent.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked emergency powers on Monday to end the protests, freezing bank accounts associated with the demonstration and even threatening to take away the pets of those involved.

The Canadian government has accused the protesters of trying to overthrow the government and has sought to brand the truckers – who started protesting in Ottawa last month over Covid-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates, dubbed as far-right extremists.

Ottawa has just had a snowfall of about 20 to 25 CM. And yet the various levels of government would rather play silly buggers. Get the Ottawa cops and OPP out on the roads there are two major highways (401, 417) that need to be patrolled.
