Period. Get objective, Globe and Mail unbelievable

Now THAT'S a big greeting. Article states that most of 1200 vehicles are not semis, so it looks a bit like a normal afternoon on the 401 as they cruise the prairies belching diesel fumes. This may go over like a lead fart. Come out and greet the “really big” convoy of clowns. Clown show drives through Winnipeg while other idiots cheer.

Many of these protesters will soon be clogging up a hospital near you. This whole movement is funded and organized by white nationalists! Do 5 min of research before embarrassing yourself. BIG? You know what is big? All their truck and insurance payments! Folks they are due in 4 days. Get vaccinated and go home.

Truckin’ right! TruckYouTrudeau TruckersConvoy2022 “I can’t go into restaurants. I can’t go into bathrooms. I’m out on the road, going in the bushes with the bears.” I bet Winnipeg is happy to be inhaling all that carcinogenic diesel exhaust 😬 HOLY CRAP! Is that ever a big greeting! 😂🤣😂🤣 tax them Doctors and Nurses don't count to these people Maybe Doctors & Nurses should March on Ottawa too for protection Nothing dumber than the truckers protesting ....what would they say if the medical professionals did the same for protection

A fringe group trying to appear as something more significant. Fully vaxed and support the truckers, and it’s against the bs mandates not vaccines. Get your story straight Save your good popcorn for the Sudbury-Ottawa stretch of Hwy.17. Wilderness choke points. Weather. First Nations Territory. Canadiana at its best.

Drigs, Drugs, Drugs... Which are good, which are bad... Drugs, Drugs, Drugs... ask your mom or ask your dad 🤷‍♂️

Some Ontario teachers are refusing work over school COVID-19 concernsMary Fraser-Hamilton spent part of last week sitting in her car instead of teaching in her classroom. Fire them: they as public employees were pampered through the covid pandemic and now not refusing to work - enough. Teaching, once a VOCATION, and now a PROFESSION… like so many other professions, they are all about DOING LESS and MAKING MORE! So, very, very sad! They first want the most money in the name of children and now they don’t want to work. WTF!? Ontario has a serious problem all because the law is too soft on these BS.

The head of the GoFundMe Truckers is a former PPC candidate Benjamin Dichter, who said Canada was becoming infested with Muslims. Gaining momentum Is this the reason Trudeau isn’t living at Sussex Dr... oh, no he left because it’s in need of “Repairs” Bullcrap Trucker Ross complains because he refuses to get vaccinated: “I can’t go into restaurants. I can’t go into bathrooms. I’m out on the road, going in the bushes with the bears.” Are we supposed to feel bad for these idiots? Get vaccinated. End of story.

I am fully vaxxed with a boost. I support the truckers 100% Ofcourse.

FluTruxKlan in action. If that's a big greeting, you need a better pic We were there, it's incredible what we are witnessing. More then half are passenger vehicles. Vehicles at every mile road. 1000's as you near Winnipeg. People are fed up. So much hate for JustinTrudeau this is not about the Vaccine anymore. It's freedom. FreedomConvoy2022

Don’t confuse supporting truckers with the whole country wanting to remove vaccine mandates. We just had an election and there’s still a lot of support for vaccine mandates especially for families of people in Long Term Care homes. So they have changed their minds about ‘securing the border’? is that what they're really protesting tho, follow the money and put that in your headlines

WheresthemoneyTamara Total bs. This protest goes well beyond opposition to mandatory vaccination. People in this country are fed up with the totalitarian government interference in their lives. They want all COVID-related restrictions to end immediately.
