Our friends next door are taking a stand for freedom.
A large group of Canadian truckers said enough is enough, decked out their rigs with anti-mandate signs, and took to the freeways to promote freedom of choice and end medical tyranny.
It happened at the Emerson Port, at the US/Canadian border.
The truckers are protesting both US and Canadian policies.
A demonstration involving a large number of vehicles is affecting traffic on #MBHwy75 near the Emerson Port of Entry. Both northbound & southbound lanes are affected. Please drive with caution if you are in the area & expect delays. #rcmpmb is on scene & monitoring.

Global News CA reported that people hoping to cross the border at Emerson are having to deal with a delay Monday morning.
Truckers tell 680 CJOB that a slow-roll protest is delaying trucking and other traffic as some truck drivers protest the vaccine mandate for all truckers that came into effect on Saturday.
Driver Jamie Throp says it took him 30 minutes to reach the border crossing from the start of the protest.
“Truck drivers are circling MB-75 between Emerson Duty Free and the Commercial Inspection station blocking all lanes heading south to the United States and Northbound traffic coming from the USA,” Throp said.
“In the early morning hours on January 17, 2022, a truck convoy descended near the U.S.-Canada border in Emerson, Manitoba, Canada to protest the vaccine mandate policies both the U.S. and Canada are implementing.”

Thank you to our Canadian trucker friends for riding for freedom.
Truckers are the backbone of every westernized country, and without them, we end up with a country that looks like this:
