The only hate we saw today was from masked idiots spitting at us or fingering us. The convoy was all cheers and smiles. The Florence nightingale soy boys swore and fingered everyone. We all know where the hate lies. With the media and the enslaved morons. Putting a canadain flag on him is not defacing if he was alive today he would support freedom

As should all self-respecting Canadians! Sadly, media outlets like are too afraid to take a stance. oh now they care about statues. Get over it. It’s a statue. 🤨🙄 Let's turn this into something positive! Love instead of hate.🙏 Putting a Canadian flag on a Canadian icon who ran across Canada in spite of his medical status is defacing... Ok.

They should not live on this little planet earth! Good, but what should be called out is their lack of consideration for the over 80% of contributing Canadians vaccinated and doing their part to save the health care system and lives while having to postpone surgeries and procedures as the non vaccinated fill the hospitals.

You need to understand what defacing means before spreading misinformation with the intent of inciting hatred and violence rcmpgrcpolice

Health minister says vaccines are not 'the enemy' as protest convoy descends on Ottawa | CBC NewsHealth Minister Jean-Yves Duclos defended his government's vaccination push Friday as a convoy of protesters opposed to vaccine mandates prepares to descend on Ottawa this weekend. Well at least he’s flexible in his single solution or nothing approach. Keeping the dictatorship alive. if the vax worked as advertised you might have a point. Heck if all the truckers were heading to Ottawa to get the vaccine I might actually support them. But they're not. So F them.

Notice that the supporters of these stunts have a VERY small audience? They just shout louder to be heard. Just wanted to share the good news with you the fund for the trucker's Freedom rally and Ottawa has raised over eight million dollars!! Not acceptable. Be respectful of our lost heroes and what they fought for just like you want us to respect you.

Wake up people. Don't listen to this drivel on corporate media propaganda Networks. They are lying to you they're keeping you locked up and it's time to start waking up. I will never forget the fear based narrative that you spewed while people looked for answers. SHAMEFUL. This so called protest has nothing to do with vaccination. It has to do with bigotry racist ideology . A fake white mans greviance

It's just a statue. It does nothing to his legacy. What fake rage..nothing has been defaced... MSM has completely lost the narrative

Trucker convoy protest arrives in Ottawa for multi-day demonstration | Globalnews.caThe so-called 'Freedom Convoy' trucker protest against vaccine mandates – and much else – brought downtown Ottawa to a halt Saturday as big rigs blocked the parliamentary precinct. Canada used to be known as a country of polite and friendly people ready to help those in need. This is a cancer on the country that shows how many racist science deniers hide among us. Embarassing truckOff Ok! So What FREEDOMS are actually being taken away? As always, food corporations such as Loblaws, Sobeys (the thieves) & Walmart benefited the most from this 'COVID-19' saga, soaring prices and taking an advantage for racking up profit from people's pockets!

B.C.'s vaccine passport requirement updated so 12-year-olds only need one doseThe government has promised to address an oversight in the B.C. Vaccine Card program that left some children excluded from movie theatres and restaurants after turning 12. Stop the Genocide now ! Time to stand for our children and say no!!

The effects of this pandemic are going to last so much longer than the pandemic itself.

Whatever your cause, you don’t get to appropriate his legacy and you don’t touch his statue. Ever.
