OTTAWA CITY COUNCIL HOLDS MEETING AFTER POLICE ISSUE WARNING FOR TRUCKERS TO LEAVE

February 16, 2022 230 Views

Global News:  Ottawa City Council held a special meeting to discuss the ongoing situation as people still participating in the so-called “Freedom Convoy” blockade of downtown Ottawa are being warned by police to “leave the area now.” The meeting comes as questions heat up about when police will act to remove the demonstrators who have paralyzed the nation’s capital for 20 days, and after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies act on Monday for the first time, with details of the regulations contained in cabinet orders published Tuesday night. Under the act, bringing children to the blockades, participating in the protests directly, or bringing aid such as food or fuel to those involved could result in a fine of up to $5,000 or five years in prison.
