I received an email from an old friend in Canada who wrote about the trucking protests. You will see why I had to leave the country since every one of my old mates thinks the same way.
The problem with the truckers is not so much as they are anti-vaxx but that a whole group has grown up around them: from right wing to Nazis to who-ever…they danced on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, parked on the grounds around the War Memorial and desecrated the Terry Fox Statute. 90% of all truckers have been vaccinated which means these are not you typical “freedom fighters” but a very small vocal minority. They also close the Alberta/Montana border yesterday. There is very little sympathy for them now.They also got some $9,000,000.00 and god alone knows from where and who will get to spend it. I expect that they will be allowed to stay for about 8-10 days then they will be removed. Except for our soon to be ex leader of the Opposition – O’Toole, no other political leader has addressed them.We are still nice…no riot…but it will get dirty soon enough…federal politics seems to be moving into a far right Conservative Party that cannot be elected. The Conservative Party has a vocal base but that base has little to “sell” the middle/majority of voters…their leader recall is not helping them….more Trudeau into the immediate future…perhaps you can sponsor me if I decide to move to Australia.
Every one of these statements is a media distortion that even all this way away, I have seen where these lies have arisen from and what the truth actually is. Whenever I am home in The Dominion, I never ever talk politics with anyone. What, never? Well, hardly ever. But it is pointless. Still the truckers are redeeming my Canadian identity, bless them.
