Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau criticized Canadian truckers of deliberately disrupting the lives of ordinary residents via their protest.
“Individuals are trying to blockade our economy, our democracy and our fellow citizens’ daily lives,” Trudeau told lawmakers.
Trudeau has imposed lockdown measures on Canadians as a result of COVID-19, causing widespread slowdowns across the national economy.
“I couldn’t agree more @JustinTrudeau,” said Congressional candidate Robby Starbuck. “Individuals like you and your elitist friends have blockaded our economies, stolen our democracy and our fellow citizens’ daily lives. It has to stop. So be a leader, end every COVID restriction and resign!”
Canada required all travelers to quarantine for two weeks upon entering the country, and it only dropped the requirement for vaccinated travelers in the summer of 2021, CNN reported. Many restrictions on daily life are imposed at the provincial or local level, however, including Quebec’s requirement that the unvaccinated be accompanied by a chaperone while shopping.
