Ottawa officials say towing companies are refusing to move the Canadian truckers protesting vaccine mandates in the city’s streets

Ottawa city officials say towing companies contracted to work with the city are refusing to move vehicles used in the protests by Canadian truck drivers who oppose COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

“I’ve contacted them all and they’re all refusing, as of today, to provide heavy tow truck work,” city manager Steve Kanellakos told reporters Monday evening, the CBC reported.

The streets of Ottawa are littered with hundreds of trucks and other vehicles as protesters — who have dubbed themselves the “Freedom Convoy” — have illegally parked in the streets, clogging the city’s blocks. The demonstration has been in progress for nearly two weeks.

According to the CBC, the protesters have said they will only leave their posts when vaccine mandates are lifted, and it is very difficult to tow a truck without the help of the driver.

The Progressive elites do not like when their worker bee base revolts and refuses to do what they say. And inconveniences the elites. And the progressives who aren’t elites but Believe that they are Special. Blue collar folks are just another sector for the Elites to use when convenient, abuse when they aren’t.

Saskatchewan to remove proof of COVID-19 vaccination, negative test requirement on Feb. 14

On Monday, Feb. 14 at 12:01 a.m., Saskatchewan will put an end to the requirement to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result to access businesses and other public spaces.

“Proof of vaccination has been an effective policy, but its effectiveness has run its course,” a statement from premier Scott Moe reads.

“The benefits no longer outweigh the costs. It’s time to heal the divisions over vaccination in our families, in our communities and in our province. It’s time for proof of vaccination requirements to end.”

Just a coincidence.

Canada: Alberta Will End Mandated Vaccine Passports at Midnight

Just a coincidence. Alberta and many other provinces are also looking to slowly remove their mask mandates. These are the same provinces which refused to remove any mandates when the COVID positivity rate was under 5%.

Meanwhile, there are also protests at the Ambassador Bridge, which goes between Windsor and Detroit, and accounts for 27% of cross border trade. The bridge has been, at times, completely shut down over the past few days.

(Breitbart) Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce CEO Rakesh Naidu was less sympathetic to the protesters.

“Many businesses have been through so much in the last two years. This couldn’t come at a worse time. To constrict the border like this will impact everyone not just in Windsor, but Ontario and Canada. You have thousands of businesses that rely on the border and trade coming through. You have inventory based on just-in-time delivery,” Naidu told the Windsor Star on Tuesday.

“Any disruption of supply can lead to shifts being canceled and if it continues, closing operations,” Naidu cautioned. “All of that doesn’t just impact the businesses in all the different sectors, but consumers like you and me. This is not just manufacturing, but goods we all consume as well, like fresh produce, or chemicals and fuel that we need.”

See, it’s fine when the Powers That Be lock everyone down, force them to comply, mess with businesses and the economy, but, when the peons do it to get rid of mandates, well, that’s a step too far. Anyhow, if the government was smart they’d simply remove the vaccination requirement for cross border truckers, which was the original demand, and just move on.

    90% of Canadian adults are vaccinated.

    2/3s of all Canadians consider the Ottawa protestors to be inappropriate and offensive.
    Blowing big rig air horns all night creates bad optics and audibles. Would you support them in front of where you live?
    Of course heavy duty tow truck companies are not going to want to piss off their big rig customers
    Some Republicans are also now talking about a big rig protest at the Super Bowl.

    I don’t know who @Hairy is but he’s got his numbers mixed up–2/3+ of Canadians support the truckers. The folks you see walking in the streets waving flags aren’t truckers–they’re normal Canadians from Ottawa and from elsewhere who are showing their support. The folks who live in downtown Ottawa are the folks who can afford 1+M dollar condos or afford the really high rent ($4K+/mo)…so those folks tend to be high-ranked bureaucrats (all levels of government) and/or the politicians who must live in Ottawa to perform their duties. In other words–the parasite class. I forgot to mention that the other folks who reside in downtown Ottawa are the folks who regularly use the services of the Shepherds of Good Hope (the homeless).

    When you’ve lost the tow truck drivers…

    It makes sense. The only people who can operate a tow truck capable to removing a commercial tractor truck are themselves truck drivers. If I were them, I would add my tow trucks to the congestion and bill the city government for my time being stuck there. The city should get a never ending response of “I’m on the way”.

  5. The Rest of the Story says:

    Actually, the Vaccine mandate for Canadian truck drivers was dropped on January 12th. A month ago by Canada.

    Jan 12 (Reuters) – Canada will allow unvaccinated Canadian truckers to cross in from the United States, reversing a decision requiring all truckers to be inoculated against the coronavirus, Canada’s border agency said on Wednesday.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had faced pressure from the main opposition party and trucking lobby to drop the vaccine mandate for truckers, due to come into force on Saturday, saying it could result in driver shortages, disrupt trade and drive up inflation.

    The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said that unvaccinated, or partially vaccinated Canadian truck drivers arriving at the U.S.-Canada border will remain exempt from pre-arrival, arrival and post-arrival testing and quarantine requirements.

    THIS IS WHY A REVOLUTION STILL EXISTS IN CANADA AND WHY TRUDEAU IS PISSED OFF by the interference from America. He has a right to be angry, however, so does the United States when his door only swings one way.

    “However, truckers from the United States will still need to be vaccinated or they will be turned back at the border from Jan. 15,” a CBSA spokesperson said.

    Now we know why these truckers got 10 million dollars in a go fund me page in a week and an alternative site has already collected 10 million more for them. This is being fueled by the USA interest groups that need that freight to keep rolling in and out of Canada.

    Right or wrong it is what it is.
