Protesters are calling for Peace and everyone to “Get to Ottawa Now”

D-Day in Ottawa

Today the ante goes up again. Trudeau has played his wildcard. He is demonizing and dehumanizing the honest good people who just want to work for their families or cross the border without getting an injection.

Is it a two faced bluff, or will people be put in jail? One the one hand, in legal fine print, Trudeau’s emergency order still allows for peaceful protest. On the other hand, everything the authorities are doing is intended to intimidate the Truckers into leaving. And they are being very intimidating.

Freedom Convoy Protesters Are About To Get Arrested En Masse

Ottawa police have been going from truck to truck, passing out flyers to Freedom Convoy protesters which demand they vacate the demonstration zone immediately or face arrest and criminal charges.

“You must leave the area now,” reads the notice. “Anyone blocking streets, or assisting others in the blocking [of] streets, are committing a criminal offence and you may be arrested,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

The government is trying to order the police to use force against Canadian citizens who are peaceful demonstrators.

 

There are rumours busloads of police are on the way. Fences are being erected around Parliament Hill. The opposition in Parliament has told Truckers they must go from some streets where they are illegally parked, but can still protest at Parliament Hill (but if Trudeau has built a fence around Parliament Hill, what room does that leave for protests?)

Trudeau has nothing left but lies and hate: “Conservative Party people can stand with people who wave Swastikas”

Apparently Trudeau  is trying to provoke violence in Canada. He needs violence to justify his “Emergency”. The liberals who believe him will feel empowered to lash out. The peaceful protesters who waved 100,000 Canadian flags will feel betrayed by the lies.

It’s all so unnecessary.

Police make have to make a difficult choice.

The Democracy Fund has issued a brief to the Parliamentarians in Canada to advise them of what their options are.  For those interested in the legal details – it can still be revoked. But will the fear of it alone serve the purpose — just like the illegal Biden vaccine mandates still got so many people vaxed, or sacked.

This Pilot Greg Hill Has A Message For ALL Canadians

He makes a very unique point about the way complacency and fear of saying the obvious can cause disaster. He is speaking especially to the police and military.

Many of you are actively and silently questioning what you are being asked to do. 

As Jorden Peterson says: It’s not safe to speak, but it is even less safe not to speak.

You stand in these hours in a unique and difficult place… we need a wall of courage.

Trudeau is so inept he may have triggered a bank run

Actions have consequences. With the announcement that banks may freeze accounts of tens of thousands of donors, is it any wonder that many people may have tried to pull out their money? Canadians are losing faith in the banking sector too…

Bank Run? Canada’s Top Banks Mysteriously Go Offline

Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge

Days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he would invoke emergency orders to crack down on demonstrators by freezing their bank accounts, five major Canadian banks went offline on Wednesday night, as customers reported their funds were unavailable, according to technology website Bleeping Computer.

Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), BMO (Bank of Montreal), Scotiabank, TD Bank Canada, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) were all hit with unexplainable outages on Wednesday evening. Users began reporting issues with banks around 1600-1700 ET, Downdector data showed.

Canadian banks went down

There were countless stories of banking customers who experienced trouble accessing their funds yesterday evening. No bank explained the source of the outrage, but essential to note the outage comes, as we said above, days after Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.

Best wishes to the people of Canada today.

          You don’t think Pierre had much influence ?

          “Despite his personal motto, “Reason before passion”,[4] Trudeau’s personality and policy decisions aroused polarizing reactions throughout Canada during his time in office.
          While critics accused him of arrogance, of economic mismanagement, and of unduly centralizing Canadian decision-making to the detriment of the culture of Quebec and the economy of the Prairies,[5] admirers praised what they considered to be the force of his intellect[6] and his political acumen that maintained national unity over the Quebec sovereignty movement.

          Trudeau suppressed the 1970 Quebec terrorist crisis by controversially invoking the War Measures Act, the third and last time in Canadian history that the act was brought into force”

    I was wondering how long it would take for people to withdraw their cash after Trudeau threatened to freeze their accounts. Considering we live in a globally connected economy, people can always choose an overseas bank where the government has no jurisdiction. But, if people do start to withdraw or transfer funds en mass, at worst it could bring down the Canadian banking system and at best it will cause banks to limit transactions to a small value, which will upset the wealthy Marxist elites.

    Trudeau might need to go ‘blackface’ permanently to avoid detection in the streets, after this giant F… up !!!

    My guess would be that people threatened by Trudeau would move their savings to an American bank, over the border often very close. And there are 4,000 US banks. Tens of billions are likely to flee the entire Canadian banking system, causing havoc.

    Forcing a whole population to lose confidence in the Canadian banks because they are subject to government fiat is really the most commercially devastating thing Trudeau could have done. Taxation is one thing. Theft is another. And it could even devalue the Canadian dollar, driving the flight and threatening the liquidity of the banks. Unless Trudeau intervenes again as he runs scared of the consequences of his thoughtless arrogance.

    Members of parliament of all sides will be under siege by constituents and banking customers and the powerful banks themselves and the corporations. It’s one thing to be Woke, quite another to go Broke. And a real threat to Canadian sovereignty. Keep digging your own political grave Trudeau as the most hated man in Canada and an enemy of Canadian democracy.

      In antiquity the word tyrant signified the holder of absolute political power.

      Leonard E. Read, the founder of the Foundation for Economic Education in 1946, used to say that Americans live in a country in which various levels of government extract over 40% of their productivity, yet they call this system freedom.

      “They don’t know the difference between freedom and coercion.”

      Liberty is a philosophy that requires responsibility, accountability, self-reliance, self-discipline and courage. These are the exact virtues the majority of people do not have.

      in Australia, I think it started in a subtle way, removing public access to the lawns around and on parliament house in Canberra because of “security concerns”.

      is it really some grand conspiracy to remove people? Probably not, in my opinion, but it is worth noting.

      Security consultants have to (presumably) show their value for money via performance indicators, and what better way to do that than to propose and implement ever tightening access restrictions?

        It starts off by our governments losing trust in the people who vote for them and the politicians see themselves as superior rather than acting on behalf of the wishes of the people who vote them to office. Then it escalates into a fear of the people as some people rise up and show signs of disapproval by way of protests and the like. To counteract that fear they start building “walls”, mostly with decrees and the likes but ultimately they do it physically as they start to fear for their lives. It’s a sad state of affairs but that’s how governments end up for not acting in the interests of the people and the nation as a whole, and instead act for their own benefit. Yet we always understood that governments are there to serve the people but in reality it rarely ever is the case at least to a certain extent. The longer they exist the more drunk they become for power and authoritarianism. The system eventually collapses and we start the next cycle. It’s how it always went throughout history.

        You can walk on the lawns around and on parliament house! Well, apart from the top.

        The “anti-terrorism” measures are two fold. You can no long drive a vehicle onto parliament house (a bit weird that you could before). You can’t gain access, from outside (you can from the inside), to the top part of parliament hill. This is the area above the two chambers and which also has significant weaknesses to certain types of attacks.

        The original symbolic concept of Parliament House was that “the people” could walk right over the top thus symbolizing that the politicians were beneath the people and subservient to them.

        That capability was removed early due to concocted “security concerns” because appropriate security measures were already incorporated into the original design.

        The politicians just didn’t like the idea that they were symbolically the servants of the people because they think of themselves as our masters.

        Another symbolic concept removed from the original design was not sinking the building an additional two metres into the ground making the building higher profile than the architect intended it to be.

        There was also an Aboriginal totem put outside the Parliament which the designer later stated was intended to be a curse upon Australia which apparently worked…

        And didn’t the pollies also blow about $100 million on a people-proof fence and also replace the glazing with something stronger to make their fortress more impenetrable?

        It’s hardly a “people’s house” any more.

        Oh, I bet no one will be punished from December when Leftist insurrectionists tried to burn down Old Parliament House.

    I still have to wonder if there is a connection between the bank outages in Canada yesterday – a very rare event – and the concurrent outage of the US Fed Reserve banking clearing system yesterday – an even rarer event.

    For some reason, I find very little information about the US problem in the news beyond this one article: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/24/the-feds-system-that-allows-banks-to-send-money-back-and-forth-is-down.html

    I wonder if the US banks are no longer going to be a safe haven for Canadians looking for a place to put their money. If the simultaneous outages were caused by some linking of the systems that went haywire temporarily, (I don’t know enough about banking to really guess how this might occur, but . . .), then US banks are now linked to Trudeau’s regime with Biden’s support.

    If I, as a US donor to the truckers, suddenly have bank access issues in the coming days, then I’ll lean more heavily towards this theory.

    The pilot video, and street-level video such as by Viva Frei in David Maddison’s comment #1, are uplifting.

    What is depressing is the effectiveness of the legacy media’s messaging. If all you know comes from there, those of us who support the protests are seen as dangerous. I am personally experiencing this.

    I have also noticed that the rhetoric now is all about the protests and protestors, the imminent threat, and the necessity for a forceful government response. There is nothing being said about vaccine mandates or other restrictions that brought us to this point. The convoy is losing the messaging battle by allowing this change.

    Lastly, here is something ironic (if it comes true). The police in Ottawa are allowed to work without being vaccinated; unjabbed cops just have to test every 72 hours. They are about to arrest people for protesting a standard which they themselves are not held to.

    And yes, there has been a run on our banks. When (if?) the banks finally start to seize assets, they will have to comply completely with the regulators or risk having their operations suspended. Bank customers have no recourse or path of appeal. Technically, they can’t even open another account so they can get their pension cheques or pay their electric bills. That’s what causes me to lose sleep, even though all I did was make a legal donation to a legal protest two weeks ago.

    If the official bullying does start, how does it end? Who ends it? Meanwhile my bemused but oblivious fellow citizens can just roll their eyes and say we troublemakers brought it on ourselves.

    Honk honk, people. Remain calm, remain standing for principle. Evil won’t win, but it won’t go away on its own.

      Yesterday I went looking for the source of the protestors hugging police vid, and it turned up on a tweet. But what was interesting was the number of headlines to articles saying, “Police hug protestors.”! Every one I saw said that, when it was the protestors going over to hug police. Nice work. Subtle propaganda. But a good example to show people who extoll the msm.

    That last video by the Canadian pilot is in effect an acknowledgement they are at war with their government. It’s not a war by force, at least not at this stage but certainly a war of words and peaceful protests. So, if the freedom fighters are not going to budge and Trudeau is showing no signs of backing down, all I can see is a real risk of violence breaking out. Some are suggesting for that reason the freedom fighters should now go away and regroup. The other suggestion is they stay calm and let Trudeau fire the first shot. That will be the trigger to wake more people up as to what is really happening. We shall see how it develops but one thing is for sure; it’s now clear who are supporters of tyranny and who are supporters of their God given rights to freedom, and that we all one day we all have to choose which side to support openly.

    Trudeau cannot ‘win’. The ‘Truckers’ cannot lose. They both seem to be playing a part in a script. The covid paradigm has changed because of the Omicron release. Covid (Omicron) is now as dangerous as the flu and as contagious as small pox. It is not chemically possible to construct a covid virus that is more contagious than omicron BA.2 and BA.1 (BA.1 is 120% less contagious than BA.2). The RNA first release covid vaccines are dangerous and as everyone will have long term immunity to covid, obsolete.

    Omicron has defeated covid in every country. It is 1/10 as deadly as the covid Delta variation and it is so contagious everyone will get it. In the UK 85% of the school age kids have covid antibodies, even though, they have not been vaccinated and have worn masks until recently. All of the school age children in Canada, UK, US, and so are going to get Omicron in the next few weeks. The kids have stopped wearing masks in schools a couple of weeks ago. The kids are not getting seriously sick. The school age parents are getting sick but it is not a big deal. Canada is no longer counting the number of covid cases to avoid/hide the political issues.

    First release covid vaccines does not provide protection for Omicron. The few people who are dying from Omicron, have one or more comorbidities. Average age of death above 79 years.

    The RNA first release vaccines do not work and they are dangerous. Should be a simple decision for Trudeau and every other leader. When the facts change, leaders should change their minds also. The Austrian government is planning to abandon all of their draconian covid measures.

    Ok. Let’s look at it from the tyrant’s point of view.

    Step 1. Freeze the bank accounts
    Step 2. Arrest the drivers
    Step 3. Move the trucks.

    It might be just me but steps 1 and 2 actively reduce the chances of step 3. And quite a few of those trucks are BIG, really BIG.

    Bluff plays the major role in this struggle for freedom. If your oponent can be bluffed out of the game it’s game over. The truckers and other freedom fighters know this and peacefully refuse to concede hard-earned moral territory to Trudeau who is on the wrong side of this historic struggle. If Trudeau was a real man he would have parleyed with the truckers earlier on in the stoush. The childishly truculent manner with which Trudeau has tried to exalt his power ego in trying to run roughshod over the truckers has gone too far. It’s now too late for Trudeau to exit the conflict and save face with dignity. It could have been win-win for Canadians. However, Trudeau, in full, toxic hubris, has selfishly squandered this wonderful opportunity. He needs to be deposed to restore freedom to Canadians and also as an example to other despotic freedom thieves.

    “Trudeau Government Officials Confirm Donors to Crowdfunding Platforms Are Specifically “Designated Targets” for DeBanking, Social Media Posts To Be Used as Evidence
    February 17, 2022 | sundance | 374 Comments
    NOTE: before getting to the heart of the biggest headline, I just want to note that when Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland speaks in French, she says things she never repeats in English. The French language Canadian audience hear a much stronger declaration in the framework of government action, including language that says, “The Canadian government, and the heart of Canadian democracy is directly being attacked by foreign groups.” Freeland does not say this in English, only in her French delivery.”

    Trudeau must think that he only needs 10% of the vote to be reelected.

    Does he know something that we don’t?

      G’day R B,
      I guess Trudeau would know the answer to:
      Has Canada installed the same voting system as the US used so successfully in 2020?

    Here’s a speech I’d like to hear read in the Parliaments of any of the Anglo-heritage “democracies”.

    Oliver Cromwell: ‘In the name of God, go!’ speech dismissing Rump Parliament – 1653

    20 April 1653, London, England

    It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

    Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

    Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

    Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

    Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

    Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

    Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

    Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

    I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

    Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

    In the name of God, go!

    The point made by the pilot about the importance of raising your voice to say “this is stupid” in the context of the 747 crash disaster is brilliant. I will be including this in my business consulting tool box that’s for sure and it is inspiring as a life tool, especially in this increasingly crazy world where the people I used to rib for being sheep, actually want to be quiet obedient sheep and wear it as a virtue signalling badge.

      I was recently the person to say “this is stupid” with regards to the direction of a research project in my workplace. The project was not going to hurt anyone (unless you count credibility and revenue), so I am certainly not claiming to have changed the world, but it did leave me with a few thoughts.

      I pointed out the flaws, and suggested a more reasonable approach, and people who had otherwise been quiet about it, actually agreed with me, and supported my assertions. My own boss was also surprisingly supportive, even though the project manager was one of their mates. This showed me that it is true, sometimes all it takes is one person to say something. Do I think such things will happen again in my lifetime? I doubt it, but I enjoyed the feeling while it lasted.

    Interesting..
    I can’t vouch for the validity but it wouldn’t surprise me.
    Apparently the Red Cross is buying up food, PPE and other supplies en-masse and shipping to Ottawa.
    Now this could be for some major looming event but then again it could be to remove the availability of same from the public arena.
    Will be interesting to see how/if what happens next.

    Martin Armstrong just posted this:

    There is absolutely NO WAY that the Canadian Banks all went down simultaneously. Trudeau can now order the banks to do as he commands and this is what is very similar to Hitler. They cannot disobey. What does that do to the confidence in Canada as a nation? This undermines the confidence in Canada as even a safe haven in the face of a European war. No bank has dared to try to explain the source of the outrage. If this was non-related to Trudeau, then all Canadian sites would have gone down – not just the banks.

    Quite so.
    Of course there’s NO REASON cyberterrorism can’t come from your own government 😈

    And Trudeau’s ONLY answer in the parliamentary debate, repeated everytime as justifying anything and everything, is that the blockade is ‘illegal’ and that by the way, the conservatives are NAZIs.

    It is only nominally illegal because he says it is and he is the Prime Minister, so it cannot be questioned. What sort of democracy is that? He is representing who? Certainly not the truckers and clearly not the conservatives and possibly not most Canadians.

    Because this is utterly pointless game playing, spoilt brat, born to rule behavior. Like Grumpy Greta, How dare they!

    It could all be resolved instantly, but only if he would back down a little, give a timetable. The world agrees with the clearly peaceful protesters and they are dropping all these restrictions, but not Trudeau. As Marie Antoinette was supposed to have said to the starving protesters, “let them eat cake”. The arrogance of the French ruling class.

    Significantly it is reported that the army has refused to be used domestically against unarmed Canadians. The fact that he would ask damns him. And protesters have learned from Jan 6 that he is itching to cast this as a violent assault on democracy, not just the result of an extraordinary ego. Nor has he addressed why they are there or that they might have a point. Just that it is ‘illegal’.

    As every socialist denies, the NAZIS were not conservatives as he said, insulting most. They were the National Socialistische Arbeiter Partei, the National Socialists, like Trudeau. And modelled on Mussolini’s new socialism he called fascism.

    Truedeau is channeling his inner Adolph or even possibly his inner Stalin. If he doesn’t know that, his education is sorely lacking. But then he was born to rule and inherited the job, so who needs to understand the difference between a military assault and a peaceful protest at the overreach of his government.

    Just go, Trudeau. It would be over in an hour.

      Such an appropriate thought.

      For a few moments it made me think of the interrelationship between crime and punishment and how a society benefits or suffers through actions taken by governments.

      Managing a society has never been easy; history shows that quite clearly, but it has been achieved in the past and can be again with the right approach.

    Can Liberal MPs vote No Confidence in Trudeau as their party leader and depose him that way? If so, you can bet that somebody ambitious and willing to do what the truckers want (but not, unfortunately, reverse the rest of the Woke Agenda) will be working the backrooms in Parliament.

    De-banking and confiscation of property is in alignment with leftist ideals that there is no such thing as private property. We might be shocked at this way of thinking, but to people like Trudeau it is nothing.

      Except when it comes to his bank account or private property. Have you noticed that about the new self appointed ruling elite? They never see their personal wealth as subject to the same collectivist confiscation rules. It’s sooo Animal Farm! Orwell sure managed to capture the worst of unprincipled, delusional human nature.

      Capricious and hypocritical behaviour is enduring. Most of our societal systems and institutions in democracies were designed to deal with these not so principled aspects of human nature. It’s why the globalist political elite (left and right) have been unpicking the systems and institutions that presented an obstacle to their corruption and inconsistency. Hillary Clinton epitomises this mentality.

      More and more people are noticing just what is at stake. Ask the average person in America whether they trust the intelligence agencies, judiciary, police, legacy corporate media, now the medical fraternity? Even faith in elections and democracy. Gone. It’s now the 99% against the 1%. It’s just some of those 99% are still to be red pilled…but it is happening.

    Under section 48 of Emergencies Act, those affected by orders are entitled to compensation.

    Does this include those using GiveSendGo?

    Has Canada just put itself in a situation where it will end up matching the GiveSendGo donations, having to compensate the recipients while GiveSendGo refunds the donors?
