Speaking to the media on Monday, Ottawa police chief Peter Sloly pleaded with all levels of government for additional resources to deal with the ongoing protest in the nation’s capital.
Stoly said the stories from city residents were “heartbreaking” and said his officers are at their breaking point after days of continuous operations.
Ottawa police made multiple arrests and issued hundreds of tickets across the second weekend of the so-called “Freedom Convoy” protests in the nation’s capital.
Sloly said police have targeted both the “funding” – in the form of the GoFundMe crowdsourcing effort, which was halted in part due to police action – as well as the “fuel” in a literal sense, banning any fuel from going into the demonstration site.
20 criminal arrests and charges as well as 500 tickets or citations had been issued thus far as part of the force’s “surge and contain” strategy in response to the ongoing protests in the nation’s capital.
Sloly added that vehicles had also been towed, “including trucks.”
