On Friday, hundreds of legal protesters were peacefully arrested, but at times, the police were brutal. Dressed in riot gear and armed with guns, batons and pepper spray, the police were, ironically, also wearing the black bloc face coverings typical of BLM and Antifa.
There are reports, photos, and video showing them breaking a truck window, surrounding a protester who was already on the ground and beating on him, and pepper spraying people who had complied with orders. One group of officers on horseback were caught on video trampling protesters.
On Saturday, there were reports of more tear gas and rubber bullets being fired into crowds of peaceful protesters.
“A bunch of truckers parked on an Ottawa street for a few weeks and the government arrested them and nationalized their bank accounts and moved to take everything from them. What do you think it will take to make them angry at you? And what do you think they’ll do to you, when the time comes?” – Dan Ball
Windmoor, one of the on-the-ground truckers who regularly posted video clips explains why he decided to go home.

Some “in case you missed its” for your excellent reporting on the Canadian civil war.
• The newly hired Ottawa Police Chief has declared war on protestors and will punish them even if they leave the protests. He made clear they will ID all protestors and punish them at the Federal level as well as financially.
• Trudeau’s deputy, Chrystia Freeland, who is also a director of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, says she plans to make her emergency powers permanent.
• Bill Gates – “Sadly, the virus itself, particularly the variant called Omicron, is a type of vaccine, as it creates both T Cell and B Bell immunity, and its done a better job… than we have with vaccines.”
• This is from a commenter on A♠, whose handle I don’t recognize. No link given, so I don’t have any primary source for this. The comment:
“UN planes have been videoed in Canada and people at the protests are saying that these ‘cops’ don’t speak English or French and enjoy beating up Canadians.”

I heard an on-the-ground videographer say the “cops” are not wearing Canadian police or military uniforms.
