Cause, effect


  1. Pipes says:

    Yep. Not surprised. The shit eating agents of chaos will be busy this weekend. Hope the RCMP goes Vickers on their asses.

  2. Sean says:

    Thankfully, Don Cherry has provided the nation with the sort of erudite conclusions he is famous for…after inspecting all the poppies.

  3. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    On his very best day: beans for brains. Are we absolutely, positively, sure it ain’t genius Bernier at the wheel?

  4. Sean says:

    If organizers are going to call this a “Trucker Convoy”…. when they know damn well that 85% of Truckers are vaccinated… then critics are justified in pointing out the small portion of racist nut bars taking advantage of the protest.

    • Wes W says:

      There are no stats on how many truckers are vaccinated. You just made that number up.

        • Wes W says:

          There are no published statistics on trucker vaccinations. The 90% number is made up. You do not get asked your occupation when you get vaccinated. The data simply is not there. Trucking groups may have polling numbers but there are many many independent truckers that would not be part of this. It would be impossible for that information to be compiled

          • Sean says:

            Dead wrong again. The stats come from the Canadian Trucking Alliance…. From their own members. There is no better authority. The racist riot taking place in Ottawa over the past 4 days has nothing to do with trucking and everything to do with fascism.

      • Phil in London says:

        I know, with 83% of Canadians over 5 years old now fully vaccinated, it COULD be that everyone else is vaccinated and only truckers are stupid enough to refuse the jab?

        The problem with that logic is Truckers are not stupid – I happen to know a fair few truckers 100% of whom ARE vaccinated. I also know people who are not truckers but are just selfish and won’t get vaccinated.

        Here is a stat for you – a super majority of the population care about not just themselves but society in general. There are black and white, indigenous and immigrant, male and female, religious and atheist, there are professionals and labourers and unemployed people. 83% of all of us are not afraid of actually trying to do our part to slow the spread of this virus even if we are frustrated with lockdowns and the like.

        If 83% of the population voted for the party presenting the current idiot that is PM he’d have a five year mandate with every seat in the commons. When you consider that 83% vaccinated includes kids who are not capable of making a decision on the matter, the few who won’t roll up their sleeve are simply the kind that drag down society.

        Truckers are no different than the rest of the population in that most are not selfish dickheads thinking only of themselves and are lining up with the rest of us to co-operate with public health guidelines.

        Shut up and get your vaccine or don’t just quit fucking whining to a super majority who are at wits end on how to tolerate you.

  5. Steve T says:

    Yep, protests always attract bad elements.

    What’s a bit odd is how much focus is on those bad elements for this particular protest. I don’t recall nearly as much focus during the BLM protests or railway blockades. And those events actually involved rioting and illegal acts.

  6. Pipes says:

    I am watching the protest and all I see are truck drivers who could be the perpetual tailgaters that try to kill me on my regular trips to and from Toronto to Kingston. The rest of the participants, not all of them of course, but many of them are agitators, or anarchists. Lets see what happens when night falls.

  7. Fred J Pertanson says:

    Just got back from downtown Ottawa. Peaceful rally. Huge turnout.

    Not a single TV camera crew anywhere to be seen. NOT ONE!

    On the way home to east end Ottawa, we saw that the police were preventing trucks from taking the Vanier parkway (an easy route to get to downtown via Montreal road). This resulted in a huge lineup of trucks unable to continue on their way

    We also noticed that traffic on the 417 west (from Quebec and Atlantic Canada) was being diverted to the Aviation Parkway. Again, a huge lineup of trucks unable to proceed.

  8. Phil in London says:

    One rebel flag is ten thousand too many. Maybe not everyone who owns one is a racists but no-one who doesn’t own one thinks there is an excuse for that rag being shoved in the face of people of colour.

    That no one there objected proves this protest to be a racist cesspool. I’d rather starve and freeze to death in the street than not stand up to that shit.

  9. Fred J Pertanson says:

    FFS, Warren. One idiot. Apparently he was told to leave and he did. Meanwhile, JT seized the opportunity to chastise everyone associated with the convoy and also shit on conservative politicians.
