Canada’s House of Commons held an emergency debate Monday on the ongoing trucker protest and occupation in Ottawa at the behest of New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jagmeet Singh.
Speaking during the meeting, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said so far, the RCMP has mobilized 300 officers to support the Ottawa Police Service amid the demonstrations occupying Ottawa.
In a passionate delivery, Trudeau also stated how the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard for all to deal with — including children and especially health-care workers.
Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly says he needs 1,800 more personnel from provincial and federal sources to sustain a push started over the weekend to rout the so-called “freedom convoy” from the city as the demonstration stretches into its 11th day.
What began as a protest against Ottawa’s vaccine mandate for truckers at the Canada-U.S. border has morphed into opposition to all public health measures including mask-wearing and vaccination and now calls for the prime minister to resign.
