I don't think it is the same as healthcare workers. That was a rule brought in that distinguishes them from most other jobs that don't require vaccination. This is merely ending an exemption that gave preferential treatment to truck drivers and brings their requirements in line with virtually everyone else who crosses the border to do business. What makes them so special?

Not to mention that is the current world of Omicron you aren’t transporting a virus from one jurisdiction with high rates to another with no/low rates which is why you would have a policy like this.

So yes the truckers should be lobbying Trudeau to lobby Biden to fix the boarder rules but they are correct that this is bad policy that will increase cost to Canadians while not preventing Covid.
That sounds more like you think requiring vaccination to cross borders is the bad policy.

If we have empty shelves because all the trucks are in Ottawa, can we blame the truckers?

“The mandate might limit shipments and cause empty shelves, so we are going to Ottawa to guarantee it will happen” (?)

The downward spiral of Theo Fleury is absolutely heartbreaking.

Someone made up those numbers and now they are floating around social media. And morons are believing and quoting them. People can dump on the convoy all they want but their is a ton of support. Try to find a video of their drive through Brandon MB, if you have trouble finding it, go to The Whistle Stop Cafe (of course) Facebook page.

The big thing is, we really don't know what they are protesting..... It is all over the map and so many made up claims. I think being against Vaccine Mandating is a worthy cause.

What percentage of Canadians do you think actually support them? 1%? 5%? I'd suggest far far more Canadians are against what they are fighting for than for it. And considering many are treating it like it should be our Jan 6th, complete with nooses, I think they are dangerous and should not be encouraged. Many of these people are unhinged.


Good thread here on the convoy and the crazies:

It's all stock photos she bought, manipulated and then she added some artwork from The Meg movie, which makes me wonder if she got permission for it, or just stole it. It will be interesting if they find out and she gets legally spanked for it.

The burning cross in the middle is a nice touch.

I know “a ton” is a useless reference. But we can agree that the un vaccinated would be supporting them. As for the vaccinated, even if that number is only 5%, that totals up to millions of Canadians. I would wager that support from the vaccinated population though is closer to 50%, especially in the prairie provinces. I mean nobody likes Trudeau and one of the convoy’s many purposes(?) is an anti Trudeau message.

LOL. You think 50% of Canadians support this convoy? That's nuts.

Even their own organizations don't support them:

https://driving.ca/auto-news/local-c...e-truck-convoy

This stuff is fringe, not mainstream.

CTV Ottawa has where’s its 80/20 supporting the truckers.

Yes, brigaded online polls are definitely the best way to determine public support for something.

Web polls on CTV are notoriously inaccurate. Please don't use that as evidence of anything, ever.
