Oh me oh mi the losers are coming 😼 The stupidest protest in the history of protests. The news should stop giving them attention. I think they can handle a pickup truck and an SUV. Some of these idiots are now saying it will be like Jan 6!!!!!! I watched ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ now I am watching ‘Covid Murder on the 401’!

Thank you to all the police, security and healthcare that are working to keep everyone safe this weekend Cry baby convoy being run by wexit.... and some people support them? Sad Its been 26 months now for Express Entry PR file applied in November 2019 still not been finalized inland applicant no response to web from please clear back log of application applied in 2019. Request to all for help inland applicants. This is a serious mental stress issue🙏🏻

i recently realized im a bit of a jew myself the truckrrs are not the problem, its the media, these truckers are mentally weak easily influenceable, ive seen it many times, the attention is going to their heads, for the first time in their lives they are being told by the media they are important, this will not end well

Federal government won't budge on vaccine mandate for truckers as convoy heads for Ottawa | CBC NewsThe federal government says it will not back down on its vaccination rule for cross-border truckers despite entrenched opposition from some drivers and groups claiming to represent their interests. 'They bring our food in, our heating fuels and our groceries, medical supplies,' 'If FEDS remove a fifth of workforce, we're going to see shortages on shelves we're going to see inflation of prices, because the cost to bring this stuff here is going to go up' TruckersForFreedom Excellent! Perfect wedge issue

Why are the American truckers not whining the same way? Don’t know why you are giving these people airtime. Best thing the News could do, is ignore them. They are spreading misinformation. Keep ‘em rollin boys!!! Thank you for standing up for our rights and freedoms!!!! Let make this count!!! 🇨🇦 TruckerforFreedom ConvoyForFreedom2022 TruckersConvoy2022 TruckersForFreedom TrudeauMustGo

Excellent planning FreedomConvoyCanada obey the law Ottawa police better back down and bow to their superior truckers. It's over people. Join the majority and take back our Canada Are the Proud Boy's and Yellow Jackets going to be there? Truck drivers were heroes at the beginning of the pandemic. Since they keep critical supply chains moving AND they work mostly in isolation, I don’t understand why we can’t exempt them from mandatory vaccination. If this is the basis for the convoy—I have no problem.

That’s a scary picture. Narrative and suggestion filled. Hope this won't go on as war...stores are running out ..milk is behind as the kids don't drink coffee or tea..its too effecting kids needs ..😪😪😪 Idiots This reminds me of that movie where the guy starts running, gaining tons of followers along the way. Then, after accomplishing nothing, he turns around and goes back and all the dummies that were with him were left wondering what to do next. .....Good movie. 🤣🍿

All the hate towards each other is disgusting. Protesting is what you do when you disagree with a policy. Millions of people disagree with the mandate. No matter the side you are on, we are all countrymen. You can disagree with people and still respect them.
