Alaska Truckers Form Convoy to Support Canadian Protests
“Alaska truck drivers have rallied in support of their counterparts in Canada who oppose COVID-19 vaccine mandates with a convoy.
More than 100 truck drivers on Sunday drove the 10 miles (16 kilometres) from Anchorage to Eagle River to support truckers in Canada who have been protesting vaccine mandates in Ottawa, the Anchorage Daily News reported.
Truck drivers and other service providers since Jan. 15 can only enter Canada if they are fully vaccinated. A week later, the U.S. required vaccinations from essential non-resident travelers
Another protest convoy took trucks from Eagle River north to the Wasilla area. Similar events were held Sunday in Fairbanks and late last month in Juneau.” Read more: CTV News
Judge Bans Honking in Downtown Ottawa for at Least the Next 10 Days
Ontario Superior Court Justice Hugh McLean on Monday (Feb. 7) granted a 10-day injunction that bans truckers parked in downtown Ottawa from honking their horns.
Judge McLean said the injunction is temporary because he needs to hear more evidence and “myriad of people” may still wish to come before the court to be heard.
However, McLean said he has already heard enough evidence to know the continual blaring of horns was having an effect on residents and that their right for “quiet, if we can use that term,” trumped the honking truckers’ right to protest.
The hearing adjourned and the court is slated to hear more evidence on how the injunction will be enforced.
Footage shows an elderly man being arrested by Ottawa police for failing to show his ID, despite identifying himself, and for honking his horn in support of the Freedom Convoy.
An Ontario judge has granted a 10-day injunction to prevent protesting truckers in downtown Ottawa from “honking their horns incessantly” as the national capital’s mayor asked for a near doubling of his police force.
