Truckers Take a Vote on Whether or Not to Continue the Protest in Alberta Canada – Opinion

Good morning to fellow citizens of America. I hope that you are paying attention to what is going on with our neighbors to the north in Canada — and if you are not, please start to do so. It is amazing what our Canadian friends have done over the past weeks. Let’s follow their example, and then add some zeal to fight against unsensical government regulation.

Red State’s colleagues and I have been keeping an eye on what has been going down in Northern Canada and have created articles to explain it. Click here, Click herePlease see the following: here.

In my essay entitled, I also wrote about yesterday’s political casualty in this movement. The Canadian Trucker Protest Claims Its First Political Casualty… the Conservative Opposition Leader. From that article…

Erin O’Toole was ousted from the party’s top job, leaving his former deputy Candice Bergen to helm a divided caucus until its members elect a new leader with a new direction.

The Manitoba MP, who served as a minister of state in former prime minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, was chosen by her colleagues Wednesday evening.

Bergen, who was deputy leader of the Conservatives under O’Toole, has represented the riding of Portage–Lisgar since 2008 and was Opposition House leader from 2016 to 2020.

After losing to Liberals in 2015’s election, Stephen Harper was elected former prime Minister. This is the third time this will take place.

Scott Reid, Conservative MP and chair of the National Caucus says Bergen was among nine potential candidates to be the interim leader.

This isn’t just an action in Ottawa, it’s happening all across the country. The latest news from Alberta shows how the protesters are digging their heels.

According to Rebel NewsJason Kenney, Alberta Premier, estimates that approximately 10,000 truckers participated in the protest. He also believes the protest leaders would like to have a seat with him.

According to reports, the U.S. government continues to protest the growing border blockade at its U.S.-Canada border. The local government of Alberta is currently discussing ways to address truck drivers who want the government to remove their COVID-19 mandates.

As detailed by Rebel News’ Kian Simone, who interviewed one of the protest organizers on Wednesday morning, the organizer said the RCMP came to the blockade to offer aid to truckers whose rigs were frozen, including mechanics and vehicle technicians. The organizer praised the RCMP’s show of consideration and made clear that the truckers wanted to speak to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.

“We need to have a table discussion with Jason Kenney,” the trucker said. “We’re not hard-hammered here to keep this thing closed. This border should be open, too. It affects everybody … But it’s time now that we need to sit down and discuss what’s going on, and what the Canadians, Albertans want. Change is needed. This can’t continue like this. This thing is getting bigger and bigger … and it’s not gonna stop. They are mad. They’re done with this. It’s time.”

The trucker who was interviewed reinforced the point. A video of truckers talking about what they should do was posted this week. Can they stay and protest the Alberta border by blocking it in Alberta, or should they move on? The video below was posted on Twitter and shows that the majority are in favor of staying. The video ends with those in the room saying the Lord’s Prayer, looking for guidance and favor with Him in this endeavor.

When it comes to the government ticking off us, it seems that Americans may have a slightly shorter fuse than other citizens. Our nation’s founding was a mad dash to tell the King of England where to stick his tax increase with no input from the colonists to where the sun does not shine. Having lived in Michigan all my life and mingling with Canadians on a regular basis, I have found that they are much more “easygoing” when it comes to government interactions.

But it doesn’t seem so.

Justin Trudeau’s government may have been pushing his constituents a bit too hard with all the mandates. Now it seems that they are not just small minority, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed last week.

If Trudeau does not change course quickly, he may be joining conservative leader Erin O’Toole as a former leader of his party. He would have no one to blame but himself — but I doubt he would.
