Was moving Gary Trent Jr. to the bench the right choice?

The reason for the convoy is because a group of people couldn’t see their dying mothers not because of police blocking roads but because the world decided they were dangerous and not to be tolerated anymore. I could not legally have a funeral for my Dad due to covid restrictions, protesters had a point, he also likely died from covid Vax causing heart attack

And what about families that couldn't visit their dying loved ones for two years.. WHAT ABOUT THAT? Nothing should ever stop a child from seeing their grandparents one last time... I was not able to be at my dad's funeral due to the mandates.Mandates whose usage is now responsible for excess death above and beyond COVID deaths.But average citizens don't have a lobbyist group with the resources of big pharma to quash media coverage and investigation...EVIL

it wasn't the Convoy that closed the streets, it was the police. Dont blame Freedom Convoy Her own words : The police had closed the route. So the police were the illegal occupation? Your ingenuity is amazing you are incompetent to find another route and the police block the way equals the Freedom Rallies fault? Liberal Justice. No Nazis flag?

Many people still can’t visit dying family members. I went all over Ottawa without any problem Neither the convoy, nor the police, made it impossible to travel from Ottawa to Orleans. Her story is nonsense. Her story makes no sense. The Convoy couldn't possibly have prevented someone from travelling to Orleans.

Sounds like the police blocked the route, not the convoy. Blame your authorities.

I couldn't visit my mother before she died: Freedom Convoy impact statement\u0027The illegal occupation of Ottawa stole from me the last moments of my mother\u0027s life.\u0027 Read the full statement Many people couldn’t visit their dying family members due to mask laws. Sad, I sympathise. My kids couldn't visit me in hospital (after a fall) because of Covid panic. Many people couldn't visit their dying loved ones due to the locks downs.

That’s not a threat to National Security requiring invocation of the Emergency Act. Sad though. Like the thousands who couldn’t do the same because of government mandates & restrictions. My mother-in-law hospitalized with a kidney ailment died alone and scared because of a Covid protocol. My wife and I live only 5 kms. from the hospital. The next and last time my wife saw her mother was a the funeral home 3 days later. The tears flowed for more than a week.

Boo hoo, I know lots of people that weren’t allowed to go see their dying family members either for other reasons. Go cry about it in your bedroom, we don’t care. Ottawa OttawaConvention cdnpoli That sounds 100% plausible…… you should definitely run that headline. Not Trudeau and tanks, but this other fairytale.

Are you implying the EA should have been implemented earlier so this incident is Trudeau's fault? Based on your usual copy & paste articles it wouldn't be surprising. Thank a trucker for the food on your table! freedomconvoy Ummm this is true for lots of people thanks to provincial and federal government.

How many couldn't meet loved ones because of the vax mandates that didn't do a thing? The Right Wing hasa phrase about people’s feelings. It fits here perfectly.

Justice Minister enquired about Emergencies Act two days into Freedom Convoy protestText messages revealed at the Emergenices Act inquiry shed light into how frustrated the justice minister was at the \u0027occupation.\u0027 And tanks.

Now the legacy media cares about such 'cruelty', but not when the state does it? Piss right off! So did thousands of Canadians whose loved one died ALONE in hospitals due to mandates and covid lockdowns. Bull chit Oh how sad, she had to 'go round' and took a detour... My my that's terrible. Almost as bad as being fired from your job and loosing your home in the dead of winter because you had a severe reaction to your first dose and refused the second

That is what the world has become? No protes, OCCUPATION, this poor woman. Guess what the world does not revolve around you, you caused this woman precious time she can never get back Low but increased risk of myocarditis after 2nd Moderna COVID-19 shot, B.C. study find Hiw is this news? People couldnt visit because of lockdowns, that is news

Hmmm. If that's not a reason to get rid of that convoy, I don't know what would be. Hey. Donald’s tax returns!

Executive accused of carrying Nazi flag to discredit Freedom Convoy denies being in OttawaAn Enterprise Canada executive accused of carrying a Nazi flag to discredit Freedom Convoy denies he was in Ottawa. Nazis just being Nazis 🤷🏻‍♂️ CalgaryHerald doing its bit to build the legal basis underlying the lawsuit to be filed against the Freedom Convoy lawyer...... DID YOU FIND THE CONSERVATIVES HOLDING THE NAZI FLAGS? BUT STILL SPREADING THE MISINFORMATION ALSO THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE FLAG ALSO NAZI’S ARE RIGHT WING COMMUNISM IS LEFT WING Hacks

Lots of people couldn’t visit their family members before they died because of Covid restrictions, that’s why they were protesting. This is one of the reasons for the freedom convoy. And how many other Canadians couldn't be with thier loved ones when sick? Or dying? But it's about this one person's heart break

I couldn’t go to 2 uncles funerals because of the lockdowns. These things happen when we’re governed by a fascist government Liberals and liberal media trying to shift blame away from their mistakes against the group fighting to the very issue that the person went through. Sorry for your loss but...you know how many ppl couldnt do the same when we were shut down for 2 years?

Well that's rich given how many were not allowed to visit dying relatives because of a respiratory virus ... This could easily be confirmed either way. You mean just like the Covid restrictions did to thousands of people in this country ? The very stuff the freedom convoy was there to make awareness of? Once again, Ottawa proves it is living in its own bubble😳😕

I'll take 'things that never happened' for 500 Alex

Justice Minister enquired about Emergencies Act two days into Freedom Convoy protestText messages revealed at the Emergenices Act inquiry shed light into how frustrated the justice minister was at the \u0027occupation.\u0027 The writing was on the wall well before the clownvoy arrived. This was only about forcing the Federal Governments hand to act and then cry foul and overreach. The City and the Province were complicit even though it was a municipal/provincial policing issue. Alternatives? Panic? Ad hoc? Knee-jerks? Caught with pants down? No thanks. Quite normal in government to explore ALL contingencies as an unusual event unfolds. IMHO this is a reasonable government planning activity.

Roads blocked from parliament police Shame on National Post . BS reporting Yes. Likely true. Except that the draconian JustinTrudeau jyduclos Covid overreach would make this visit unlikely as well. gaslightingyou liberal_party TrudeauMustGo I can’t visit my dad who’s currently in long term care because my last shot was in December of 2022. He’s currently in isolation due to a rash brought on by the newest vaccine 5

Well that was a lie, should could go because nursing homes still had restrictions. Such a paid headline it's unbelievable. Clickbait There seems to be a lot of 'stories ' coming up. Good thing for the Lieberals that they can use taxpayers money to pay these people for those 'stories'. Trudeau government is refusing to release to the public inquiry the legal opinion it used to justify invoking the Emergencies Act against the truckers' convoy, when the convoy didn't meet the legal definition of a security threat in the Emergencies Act. What does that tell you?

How many people could not visit mothers who passed away because of COVID restrictions the trucker convoy was trying to fight? The Ottawa police department let us all down. This street party should of been dismantled within 24 hours. Protests do not have BBQs, tourists, and a party atmosphere.

Inquiry commissioner dismisses requests by 'Freedom Convoy' lawyer for executive to testifyEmergencies Act inquiry commissioner rejects filings by Convoy lawyer Brendan Miller of \u0027agent provocateur\u0027 schemes to embarrass protesters.

Did she lose her legs? This is pure “I don’t like them” bullshit. There was no way she couldn’t get there somehow. Also they would have 100% helped her get there for this. This is pure attention “I hate the convoy” statement. People couldn’t be at funerals, with dying loved ones, at work because of the restrictions on the unvaxed. How selfish to not see the irony of this message.

Yep. Hhhmm funny were we not still allowed to visit dying loved ones? I missed out on two years with my mother who, during that time, transitioned from 'normal' to unrecognizable due to dementia. Still doesn't justify enacting the EA. There are thousands of us who didn't get to be with dying loved ones, because of federal mandates and provincial ones. You never spoke up for any of us.

Kind of like what happened during Covid restrictions? My best friend wasn’t allowed to see her mother in LTC because the government locked them down like dogs

Here's what the Emergencies Act inquiry heard from the public about the 'Freedom Convoy' protestsThe Public Order Emergency Commission examining the federal government's use of the Emergencies Act to end last winter's 'Freedom Convoy' protests began Wednesday with a presentation on the public feedback received. Here are some highlights from the public input presented by commission council. Liberals are fascist. much better outcome than a helicopter, a barrel of gasoline and a match...

This one won't earn you any sympathy after almost 3 years of bullshit, you locked down entire rural towns all so this city bullshit fear campaign can run jammed packed Costco's & Walmarts while devastating small business from having the same treatment. It was corporate gaming. Give me a F 🍁ing break . I don’t live anywhere near Ottawa & had the same experience because of lockdowns .

Lies !! A lot of people couldn’t be with their dying parents across the country.. and it was not because of the freedom convoy but the COVID-19 restrictions.. I know a few myself.. months without being able to even visit them.. patients even without a TV.. sad part of our history Every death is tragic; from the beloved community figure to the homeless addict known to nobody. BTW: (a) the police - not the convoy - chose to close three bridges to throttle a non-violent protest, and (b) Island Park + Mac-Cart bridges were empty and open (+Cumberland ferry)

Your spin game is strong. Covud mandates cause this. Trudeaumustgo One blocked route would not have discouraged me from visiting my dying mother. I would have found away around the perfectly legal and justified protest against mandates. Mandates that prevented thousands from being with their sick and dying loved ones.

A right to protest at the expense of other people freedom the emergency lanes were open as shown in the live streams throughout the freedom convoy. many thousands of people couldnt visit their mother before she died because of the mandates the freedom convoy protested against. Trudeau and his mandates locked her out , could not visit the elders during those days !

Thousands could not visit dying family for over a year because the tyrants in the govt said so. But they draw the line at honking. Unreal A fanciful tale. No one could see their dying anyone, because of covid lock downs. So try again Nobody could visit family or loved ones due to Covid lockdown, dying in hospitals etc etc

I couldn't bury our dead with more than 8 people. convoy changed that. Period. Blocked by Trudeau’s police not by protesters! Yikes! Sounds awful… i heard similar stories from people all over the country who were orevented from visiting dying relatives - and then that convoy came along and ended all that lockdown nonsense. Once again, thank you everyone who went to Ottawa to fight for our freedom.

Sucks to be her. This was canada for 2 years !!! Did everyone somehow forget ?!? The government did that to ltc homes, hospitals. Die while on FaceTime !!!! Disgusting. Inhumane Gross. How many died without family next to them during Trudeau's lockdowns?

Woman says, compost repeats And we’ll ignore the tens of thousands (maybe more) who couldn’t do that because of Trudeau’s lockdowns… total bs. 🤣🤣🤣 Seriously!? This is garbage news. Do better. How many people during lockdowns couldnt be with their sick and dying families ? Not to mention childrens hospital who wouldn’t let parents be with their sick kids? Report that story!!

her feet are broken, her legs are broken. what a lazy society we are here now and whiny, i cpould not move to get there is an excuse. if you can walk you can there, i bet if a bear chased you yolur ass would move. BULL SHIT I guess she needed to be more creative. If there is a way there is a way. Many didn’t get to visit their loved ones before they died and it wasn’t about a convoy, it was about government stupidity.

Harry__Faulkner good Ratio'd candidate right here

That same thing happened to a whole lot of Canadians who faced lock downs and travel restrictions all over Canada. Hence the bloody protest. Half the whining came from parliamentarians. Absolute nonsense. She couldn't visit because we were locked down! Umm…for almost two years before the protest no one could visit dying relatives, then only unvaccinated were forbidden from public transport, including air, healthcare settings and leaving/reentering the country so I’m sure many sadly missed being bedside with dying loved ones.

You mean the police blocked access illegally? It is awful when people can't visit dying parents. Covid protocols caused a lot of that. A lot more family’s were stopped from being with loved ones that were dying because of the mandates the government put in place to gain control of people . This individual was from Ottawa, so preferential treatment was required; someone needs to check their privilege …

Hmm. How long did it take them to find this (fake?) story .. one woman can't visit her mother? how about the thousands that were trapped and blackmailed due to TrudeauMustGo 's illegal, unscientific and immoral mandates? What absolute bunk propaganda. You need defunding from your Pathetic Sugar Daddy.

Now do people who couldn’t visit their dying loved ones in hospital because they didn’t take mRNA shots

LIES That’s upsetting but not a lot of people got to see anyone during the pandemic. Dying or not. I’m sorry for her and her family but let’s get real. The government didn’t let anyone see anyone. Or at least that was their goal. She could have tried any number of alternative routes. What nonsense. Bs.... all over the country people had to let their relative die alone because of the ridiculous lockdown policies... blame politicians and health officials..

Wellington Street? If there is a will there’s a way. she couldn’t see her because of Covid restrictions My 9 siblings and I couldn’t visit Mother before she died because of 2 weeks to flatten the curve. There fixed it for you. I couldn't attend funerals. Not because roads were 'blocked' The convoy didn’t block her from seeing mother. She listen to the government/media shitty advise. Just another one that want to point blame for her shitty decisions.

Literally so many elderly died alone because of lockdowns that were enforced everywhere. . . Didn't see you doing any stories on the unvaccinated not being allowed to see dying loved ones. Or loosing their jobs, no EI etc. Oh that's right you wanted us to suffer. We aren't worthy. If she really wanted to visit her dying Mother I am sure there were ways to do that. One of the Truckers might have walked her there safely. Don't forget they too have families and alot of them have big hearts. They would have get her through.

I'll take things that never happened for $2000 Blocked By the Liberal instructed police? What about all the people who couldn't see their loved ones in their last minutes due to a vaccine status? That's why this convoy shouldn't been shut down from day one Yeah my father passed away during covid and I could see him before he passed, the world's not about you!

Why wait until now to come forward? I do not believe this in anyway. People are coming up with stuff because of the inquiry. Unreal The illegal occupation. Hmmm sounds like a made up narrative. The police closed the road. What a bs post The real story is that Liberal Gov blocked thousands from visiting their dying loved ones with tyrannical mandates.

My wife could not visit and say goodbye to her dying father during the Covid mandates. Attempting to use this as an issue over the convoy is disingenuous and evil. Trudeau wouldn’t let millions travel to see their sick and dying mothers. How many people had to watch their loved ones die alone over zoom because of the government restrictions. History will remember these governments with shame and sorrow.

Sorry I call BS. The roads were always open anywhere near any hospitals, the convoy was in the core, and you best have a lot of proof to back that up or you just sold out your dead mother. I truly don't believe this at all. So many ways to verify information now, perjury perhaps? Who gives a fuck... doubt it's actually true. How many people couldn't be with their dying loved ones for 2 years!!!

No roads were blocked (unless you include the cops) So Wellington was blocked and because of that you couldn't visit your mother? I call bs on that.

LOL you couldn't go in the hospitals because of the mandates what the fuck do you think they were fighting for. You couldn't go into an old age home because of the mandates so what the fuck are they talking about? I'm calling bullshit And how many people weren’t allowed to visit dying ones because of lockdowns ?

Did she try cutting through the side streets? Just buying a Canadian flag at the dollar store, waving it and walking over to her mom's? 2. The country has been ripped apart by MSM journalists & this type of sh*t. You are perpetuating disease in the minds of the masses and dividing the country. It must stop.

1. I had a friend who cried all day when she heard news that the big bad “Convoy people” were coming back to Ottawa this summer. (She lives an hour away from the city.) The event was in support of hero, James Topp, who trekked across Canada to wake you up. It was beautiful. This is absolute nonsense. Nothing was blocked to that extent. Perhaps walking a few blocks was too difficult?

How many of us couldn't see dying loved ones because of the vaccine mandates? So this woman was put in the same situation as we were. Now she knows how we felt. What about all the people that couldn't visit their dying relatives in care homes, fly across the country for funerals, or to see or visit their dying loved ones. Cry me a fucking River

I am sorry for her loss, but I don't believe hr Irony. Countless Canadians didn’t get to be with a loved one when they died or have a proper funeral thanks to the very mandates the Truckers were protesting. Now she understands how those Canadians feel. cdnpoli Oh no questions, freedom convoy had nothing to do with freedom of the people. They are simply mobs, second class mobs .

The convoy never blocked any roads. The police did Never mind the thousands who couldn’t visit dying relatives because of mandates… Liberal State propaganda media Sue the hell out of the ignoramuses who think they have the right to inconvenience everyone. I think these 'journalists' are forgetting that the government literally did this to many, many people. And people were literally protesting against garbage like this. Unreal.

No mandates, no protest. No protest, no problem visiting. It’s that simple. The fascist Ottawa regime we call our government can shove their sham inquiry up where the sun don’t shine! Oh no!

Or was that from covid restrictions in the facility her mum was in? The roads weren’t blocked. So lemme get this straight: a whole nation of elderly mothers is barred from seeing their families for months on end because of a nat'l public health regime. Hundreds die alone. A protest against this very regime blocks a road between someone & her mother. And that's newsworthy.

One versus 1000s who couldn't visit elderly loved ones due to lockdowns? Nonsense. I couldn't visit my mother in law before she died because of mandates. I couldn’t visit my mother because of provincial lockdowns. She died alone. ableg And what about the government blockading provincial borders a year ago?

I wasn't allowed to visit my mother as she lay dying, scared and alone in the hospital.. Where is my article and the tens of thousands like me Now do those effected by the mandates .... we will wait

Trucks didn't block any roads. It was cops. So, she should blame the cops. Bull shit Liar Political propaganda just as emergency’s act is in session. The article states the police closed the bridge. Why wasn’t this posted in Jan? The liberals desperately looking for heart tugging stories.The government is responsible for causing the chaos. NP getting jesters handouts

She said, 'I tried to get across the bridge from Wakefield to Orleans to see my mum. I was not successful either day. The POLICE had closed the route.' how about all the non vaccinated people who couldn’t be with loved ones while they died? The police Kept Her From seeing her mum. Not the protesters. Stupid story and from the NP no Less. Used To Be the only paper I’d read. I don’t feel sorry for That woman. At all. She could have got there.

So many are saying they were protesting because of restrictions that were over. Sadly - she is far from being alone! Really. You're going there?

Legacy media and & EA inquiry reaching unprecedented levels of gaslighting. The Police closed one bridge, however there were many other bridges open. Family visiting, weddings and funerals were blocked by Covid for all except the Elite, somehow they managed to do such Why these guys gaslighting us? Like.. The last 3 years didn't just happen?

I'm just Here to see if everyone else realizes how ironic this headline is lol How many truckers couldn't make a living because of mandates? How many of there families suffered? We can play that game as well! Walk Kind of like what the government did with lockdowns and vax passports and restricting movement of people and restricting who is allowed to visit in hospitals.

No that’s the governments fault…why do you think we were in Ottawa in the first place The road bridge was closed by the police, freaking liar. Gee... Guess what happened for 2 years before

JFC 🙄 DefundMedia TrudeauMustGo TrudeauCorruption GreatReset It's sad but many didn't get to see their loves ones before they passed due to lockdowns and vaccine mandates. Protest prevents woman from seeing mother. MSM: terrible tragedy! Covid policies being protested prevent millions from seeing family members, visiting hospitals and nursing homes, attending funerals. MSM: we need more restrictions, you extremists!

And what about the 1000`s of people that couldn't do the same because of mandates and passports. But I'm sure your predicament is much more severe I couldn’t visit my mom before she died because of covid restrictions from our facist government Thousands of unvaccinated could not be with loved ones when they died also. TrudeauIsTheNewHitler is to blame. TrudeauNationalDisgrace

Many couldn’t because they were not allowed to fly take a train etc because they didn’t take a forced bullshlt vaccination or the care homes they lived in would not allow visitors. Suck it up like everyone else! She might want to start a support group of all children who couldn’t visit their loved ones during covid, that would be a target rich environment.

Lol, nobody else seems to have trouble walking around on Ottawa, did someone coach her My wife had to watch her terrified mom head into cancer surgery by herself cuz we were locked out. My uncle ied alone in a hospital cuz his wife was locked out.

Kind of like covid? These people are unreal Your bias is unbelievable no wander me and my wife dumped this rag Tell that to the thousands who were prevented from being with their dying loved ones across Canada ………. BS. She was just easily discouraged and gave up. 'woman says'..... That was your takeaway to headline? Answers4Sean Please interview Dan Hartman.

A lot more couldn't visit dying seniors because of useless mandates. I'm guessing the Liberals wanted airstrikes for that? Bullshit. Neither could the people involved in the protest, and then hat their own death wished upon them. This is at the feet of the Feds. The vaccine mandates should have been dropped.

I'm sorry to hear that and you are amongst the thousands that did not see a loved one before they passed because of the mandated lockdowns imposed by the very people the Freedom Convoys was protesting about. Are you fucking kidding? And protests against lockdowns are also responsible FOR people being stuck in their homes, right?

Many people from coast to coast to coast were not able to see family members, or even spouses before they died. This was due to Liberal Covid mandates! I lost a brother. If you lived in downtown core, there was access to all hospitals. That's a lie Boo Hoo, cry me a river. HUNDREDS of people Hd to say goodbye to loved ones with Zoom, Due to LTC and Hospital restrictions

Yeah, well thousands are still without their jobs and means to care for their families because of Trudeau`s mandates, give your frigging heads a shake. There are thousands more who couldn't visit their dying loved ones because of JustinTrudeau Lots of stories…. Like the ones that never got to say goodbye to dying loved ones due to mandates and restrictions… horrible!

Oh, get lost. The police blocked the roads and the govt barred the unvaxxed from traveling or entering hospitals & LTC homes to visit their dying loved ones. The mandate protestors weren't blocking anyone.

Propaganda Just here for the ratio Thousands of Canadians could not be with their loved ones bc of unscientific draconian vaccine mandates. Freedumbers shame Boo hoo. Unvaccinated people weren’t allowed to travel to visit their dying family members or go to funerals. What garbage is this ! While it is a sad story it’s a bit of porkies as well. There are 5 bridges between Ottawa and Gatineau. Only one was closed.

How many people couldn't be with loved ones that died because of covid protocols? Oh Mi Cron. We couldn't visit loved ones because of the $cience Boo fucking hoo. Lest we forget all the heartbreaking and inexcusable scenarios where Canadians couldn't visit their dying loved ones b/c Trudeau went full on Nazi TrudeauMustGo spite malice

1000’s were not allowed to visit loved ones because of vax status. Still people are being denied organ transplants because of status. But hey it is only unfair when it affects one group of people right? I tried to get across the bridge from Wakefield to Orleans to see my mum. I was not successful either day. The police had closed the route. THE POLICE !!!!

this a JOKE? how many people DIED alone over the two years of lockdowns? the CONVOY was to END THE BULLSHIT. your welcome. Tone deaf. There's some ironic karma right there. I couldn't visit my dying mother in hospital because of asinine mandates and government overreach the covoy were protesting. This headline must be rage bait.

That was the covid lockdowns - not the convoy. I couldn’t visit my 82-83 year old father for months because of lockdowns and restrictions. 'Woman says she couldn't visit mother before she died because' of COVID restrictions... Many people couldn't visit dying relatives during the excessive covid mandates. That's what the Freedom convoy was about. Eliminating draconian mandates that isolated so many. Isn't it ironic.

Ottawa is truly the capital of lying in the country. If that is true then that is sad. If you agree that this is sad you must also agree that it was crazy sad that so many people died alone because it was “too dangerous” to sit beside a dying loved one. Sorry lefties…you can’t have it both ways I was shocked that governments did not build field hospitals for the sick and let the rest of us go on about our lives. That being said the honkers protesting in Ottawa were every bit obscene as the lockdowns were. Quebec was brutal, I began calling it French North Korea.

Oh how about the hundreds of people who wouldn’t be let into a hospital With their lives one dieing. Sorry for her luck. The only time I know of family not being able to see dying relatives was when liberal federal government forbid it ! So to say it was truckers If you really wanted to this women would have done every thing. I bet the truckers would have escorted her.

Give me a break. Add it to the list of people banned from nursing homes. 1. This is bullshit 2. She couldn't walk to the hospital? 3. The police blocking the roads is not the protesters blocking the road. The whataboutmeism of Ottawa is just pathetic and uncanadian. Too much bloody drama!!! FreedomConvoy

How was she allowed in the hospital or home - I was not able to visit my Mother and there was no Freedom Convoy where I live - I think she is telling a LIE!!!!

Now do those who missed their relatives death because of lockdowns. NP is just another propaganda outlet. So sorry to hear that a very sad time for you but that doesn't mean the Emergency Act should have been invoked! The inquiry is about the act was is legal or not! Thousands of people didn't get to see their dying relatives because of the covid protocols too.

The article says the police blocked the routes she was trying to take to see her Mother, not the convoy. This propaganda is awful. Stop 🛑 Many, MANY ppl couldn't visit dying family during the gov-mandated rolling lockdowns or curfews. The unvaccinated couldn't either cuz of gov-imposed transport & border restrictions. It would have continued unabated the gov, too, had it not been for Freedom Convoy

Do you have any idea how many people couldn't be with their dying loved ones because of Government mandates? Your leftist lock downs did the same thing across all of Canada ... no funeral for my grandpa but Justin could walk amongst the BLM crouds same week neverforgive Riggght. 🙄 The roads were locked down. Hmmm, kinda like society for two years.

The irony. Seems to me this is the impact of everyone being scared. Yknow from that time when that arsonist tried to burn down a building, right? Definitely the worst thing that happened those weeks. What ever happened to that arsonist anyway? Did OPS just let him go? Like you wouldn't have walked.. What kind of person uses their dead mother for political advantage. Disgusting.

We couldn’t be with our Mother while she was dying in the hospital due to Covid lockdowns. They only let us in after she went into a coma, she died that night. She must of thought we abandoned her while she lay there for days. Trudeau’s Canada. What about the 1000's who couldn't be with their dying loved ones because of travel mandates? I guess that doesn't count hey!

National post is a joke. Thousands stood looking at there loved ones trough a window as they died by themselves. Everywhere for 2 years. Sorry for your loss, however you have no sympathy for the lady that got trampled by the horses that were trained to stomp on people Well sorry but it is what it is. Freedom has costs. And you guys were ok with that for the past couple of years before the protest.

1. Likely a lie 2. Covid restrictions (the ones opposed by the Freedom Convoy) prevented MANY MORE people from seeing their loved ones as they died 3. Sorry not sorry that the peaceful protest against this government grew too large too fast for you to make travel arrangements I call bullshit. One road in the whole town. Can’t walk 4 blocks

Are there not multiple bridges and possible routes across the Ottawa region? Oh wait, I just looked at google maps and there are. None of us could visit loved ones, that’s why people were protesting. Anyone prevented from being with a dying loved one is tragic. I think it is important to acknowledge though that many people also experienced this through the covid restrictions.

'On my route to work and back, not only was I delayed, I also felt intimidated by the vehicles with flags of various kinds, driving aggressively to and from their camp.' 🤡 More people missed their family due to government restrictions. I sent mine in to the commission. I described how horrible the passports made my life, how wonderful it was when the truckers gave me hope, how utterly terrifying and upsetting it was when the gov started the violence. NP won't ever tell my story.

Now do Covid lockdowns… Not to minimize the impact on this woman, as it is horrible that she was prevented from reaching her mother; Many people across Canada also were prevented from being with loved ones because of the actions and policies of this government. Bs Hundreds of thousands of Canadians were unable to visit their relatives before they died because of the Freedoms and Rights blocked by the provincial and federal PMs.

Yeah..right. Should have used her legs and walked! What sensationalistic clap trap. Hahahahahaha that’s rich…how about all those who died alone in hospital or remain isolated in LTC because the POS govt wouldn’t let family members be with them!!! Jabbed or not!!!! Crimes against humanity!!!! Absolutely untrue the truckers were not interfering in emergency services the government and the police who were there and asking people for proof they had a right to be there but definitely not the truckers.

The police blocked the roads not the protestors. They blocked a few blocks downtown ottawa. Did she get confused where the hospital was? Isn't the problem her sense of direction? so called 'freedom convoy' or douchebag wi ter jamboree. That's sad if true.... It almost compares to the millions of people who also couldn't see their sick and dying loved ones, had their businesses ruined permanently, we're segregated in society and forbidden from leaving the country due to lockdowns and government fascism

How many children couldn't visit their parent before they died because of government lockdowns and mandates? All 'news' is corrupt.
