BAD MOTHER TRUCKERS

Sometimes it takes 50,000 truckers to say “enough is enough.”
I don’t cover a whole lot of Canadian politics, but there’s a story brewing to the north that is so inspiring, we all need to take notice.
This all started with a federal mandate handed down by the Canadian government requiring all truckers to take the covid vaccine. It went into effect on January 15.
According to government data, 20% of Canadian and American cross-border truckers are not vaccinated.
Where in “the science” does it make sense to force-vaccinate people who spend their entire workday alone?
Remember that Canada has had some of the strictest lockdowns in the world. They even re-entered lockdown last month due to the Omicron variant, and indoor dining and gyms still remain closed today.
In response, an estimated 50,000 Canadian truckers, calling themselves the Freedom Convoy, are driving in a massive convoy across Canada towards the capital of Ottowa where they will remain until the government addresses their grievances. They will be met by an estimated 1.5 million Canadians upon their arrival.
Their demands: The organizers are calling for an end to vaccine passports and for the federal government to respect the rights of the unvaccinated.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tried to downplay the caravan, calling them: “a small fringe minority… who are holding unacceptable views.” But the numbers speak for themselves…
Record-breaking: The caravan currently stretches roughly 50 miles long. The previous record for longest caravan, according to Guinness World Records, is 5 miles long and took place in Egypt in 2020. That would make this 10x longer than the world record.
Support is pouring in from all angles for the Freedom Caravan. A GoFundMe page has raised over $6 million dollars to help pay for gas, food, and shelter of the participating truckers.
Even Elon Musk is showing support, tweeting:
“Canadian truckers rule”
