Trudeau Is Ignoring The Freedom Convoy Because He Knows His Agenda Is Failing

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on January 26, 2022

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been remaining unusually quiet about one of the biggest news stories in Canada, and it is because it is fundamentally all about his agenda failing.

The Freedom Convoy 2022 is opposing vaccine mandates on a federal and provincial level, with their planned rally-point in Ottawa designed to create awareness of the ridiculousness of the government’s rules. Because mandates have become so associated with more liberal politicians like Trudeau and the federal Liberal Party they know that the awareness the convoy is creating is an attack fundamentally against their worldview. 

The only thing Trudeau has said so far regarding the Freedom Convoy was a dismissive statement he made to reporters in french, which denies the significance of losing any significant percentage of truckers.

Trudeau stated:

Almost 90 percent of truckers in Canada are vaccinated, I regret that the Conservative Party and Conservative politicians are in the process of stoking Canadians’ fears about the supply chain. The reality is that vaccination is how we’ll get through this.

The Liberal Transport Minister Omar Alghabra has also tried to brush aside the issue that vaccine mandates have caused for Canada’s supply chains. Alghabra makes the rather ridiculous argument that mandates were helping to solve supply chain issues despite forcing many truckers into positions where they could not cross the board due to their principled opposition to being vaccinated against COVID-19. 

Considering that the strategy the Liberal Party has taken with the convoy is simply to ignore it the best they can while corporate media tries to smear the convoy, it is clear they know they are losing the debate on mandates and other COVID-19 restrictions.

If Justin Trudeau thought he could win a media battle by taking on the truckers and the convoy organizers Tamara Lich and Benjamin Dichter directly he would have. Trudeau refuses to because even polling that seems skewed in favour of mandatory vaccination shows even significant numbers of Liberal voters in opposition to that policy.

Trudeau’s waiting around for the media to try and discredit the Freedom Convoy is not going to work, although he will keep trying his best to ignore it as the convoy symbolizes his failures on COVID and Canadians growing sick and tired of his authoritarian governance style.

The truckers are going to win at the end of this, and there is little the establishment can do if they don’t climb aboard the movement.

    Thank You Candace. Now please explain why we aren’t seeing O’Toole on the side of The Freedom Convoy? How simple does this get for the next election? Are you for Freedom or on the other side?! You won’t even need to hire an advertising agency! This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for.

  2. J says:

    You stand corrected, as this convoy isn’t peacefully protesting vaccine mandates…. They are opposing all mandates for all Canadians. Go to 2022 convoy fir freedom Facebook page, they have outlined their mandate for this peaceful protest.. a little journalistic research would have you reporting accurately. Stop media manipulation of the people by reporting facts and not your personal agendas.

  3. William Braun says:

    It’s too bad that O’toole decided during the election that he was a Liberal.

  4. Kimberly Gwilt says:

    True Blue, Otoole made clear during election that he is for mandatory vaccinations. O’toole showed his colors as purple. Very few people in the conservative party left, that haven’t sold out, if any at all.
    Really pleased to see Candice’s letter. So appreciated.
    I will never vote conservative again.

    Of course, in my opinion 😊

    RE: The reality is that vaccination is how we’ll get through this.

    Trudeau’s statement above is insane in the context of the science of today, where there evidence is emerging there is actually an inverse relationship between the jab and the Omicron mutation. And it’s insanity on top of insanity considering there is nothing to get through. The virus has outsmarted the medical authorities trying to kill people and evolved to something akin to a cold.

    Time to end the insanity, and to be more accurate, the criminal insanity.

    Why the Push ~n~ Shove for Vaccines? TurDoux? eh? Try this: Africa and Japan Defy the Odds With Ivermectin
    Japan and Africa have also defied the odds with ivermectin. As reported by NewsRescue at the end of August 2021, “Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation predicted disaster in the developing world, but so far she has been dead wrong, at least as far as Africa is concerned.”9

    Indeed, despite having nearly 1.4 billion people, Africa has maintained one of the lowest COVID caseloads and death rates in the world, accounting for just 4% of the global reported death rate as of mid-May 2021.10 While media feign confusion, ivermectin may well be the explanation for this phenomenon.

    A study11 published at the end of December 2020 found that African countries that participated in the African Program for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC), where intensive ivermectin mass campaigns were carried out between 1995 and 2015, had 28% lower COVID-19 mortality and 8% lower infection rates than non-APOC countries that did not participate in the ivermectin campaign.

    “That a mass public health preventive campaign against COVID-19 may have taken place, inadvertently, in some African countries with massive community ivermectin use is an attractive hypothesis,” the authors said.12

    Similarly, Japan has seen a massive decline in cases after adopting ivermectin as standard treatment against COVID. November 3, 2021, Free West Media reported:13

    “The head of the Tokyo Medical Association appeared on national television in September urging doctors to use Ivermectin and they listened. A little over a month later, COVID-19 is under control in Japan …

    Japan had slavishly adhered to all the Big Pharma prescriptions, including quarantine, contact tracing, masking, social distance, but finally the pandemic had hit them hard after they started aggressive vaccination in May 2021.

    The results looked good initially, but in mid-July they started rising again and on August 6 cases hit a new all-time high and continued to rise.

    Ivermectin was allowed as a treatment on August 13 and after 2 weeks the cases started to come down. In fact, they are now down 99% from the peak … In Japan, doctors can now prescribe it without restrictions, and people can buy it legally from India.”

    Doctors Urge Acceptance of Ivermectin to Save Lives
    In the U.S., the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has been calling for widespread adoption of ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and for the treatment of all phases of COVID-19.14,15

    && P.S. Covid is OVER! Talk to Biden and Fauci! Fauci said this week -==- it’s turned so mild that we will just ”HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT”
