freecanada .win is a Canadian forum styled like 4/8chan. The content posted is similar alt-right extremist rhetoric. Posted by Canadians. Registered (host: XenForo) in 2019, the vile platform used by many #Freedumbconvoy supporters/participants is relatively unknown #OttawaConvoy
I've shared posts by freecanada .win users-#HornyHonkies threads- showcasing the misogynistic, sexist & patriarchal ideologies held by these #freedomfakers. I'm always disgusted by what I read, but right now (Pride Month, Indigenous Month, Roe v Wade, Canada Day) it's nuts
#OttawaConvoy & #freedomfaker posts regarding #Indigenous peoples make me sick. The snippets are particularly offensive. Being patriotic doesn't mean ignoring your nation's history-good or bad. Based on what I've witnessed, a vast majority of this 'movement' are bigots #FreeDumb ImageImage

Many of the #freedumb fruckers are being made into folk heroes so let's meet #OttawaOccupier Kevin Eresman from Medicine Hat. He recently inherited Trojan Transport 403-527-5964 and headed for the #OttawaOccupation. #TimbitTaliban #MayonnaiseMilitia #ramranch ⬇️
Kevin started off slow and dirty at the #OttawaOccupation but moved up in rank to be right beside Parliament Hill to become one of the loudest at #TheHonkering #FluTruxClan. Kevin might be the reason the Ottawa police were worried about weapons. Kevin came with a secret. ⬇️
2021 investigating stolen firearms Lethbridge police arrested Kevin for possession of an unauthorized firearm and removing serial numbers. He's out on bail. #OttawaConvoy #TimbitTaliban #MayonnaiseMilitia #FluTruxClan Recently Kevin has ran into trouble for equally troublin.⬇️

Time for follow up on the thread re: La Crete Chamber sending a bus to #Ottawa on February 13 well after it was known the protest was not peaceful or lawful, with plans to meet with their MP @ArnoldViersen


#freedomconvoy22 #RamRanchResistance
Andrew F, who was on the bus, updated the Chamber's posts about their timeline and also the group had a "very good meeting" with MP @ArnoldViersen. This was on Feb. 17, after #Ontario declared a state of emergency and the #EmergenciesAct was in place.

#OttawaOccupation #Ottawa
Their MP wasn't the only "famous face" they met; Barbie H, who appears to also be part of the La Crete Chamber group from her posts on the Mackenzie County Freedom Rally 2022 Facebook Group, is pictured here with #OttawaSiege organizers Danny Bulford and Chris Barber.

Does a municipal government have the authority and legality to do this? What about companies with mandatory drug/alcohol testing? @CBCEdmonton @ctvedmonton @CityNewsYEG @edmontonjournal @globeandmail @GlobalEdmonton you might want to look into this

@Mitchell_AB @KikkiPlanet @TheBreakdownAB @duncankinney -
Know anyone who may be able to answer if a Municipality can institute such a “rule”?
Just to follow this up, this County and some of it’s small towns are among the lowest vaccination rates in Alberta.

And while this area also claims to be untouched by covid, the statistics don’t lie.

#BREAKING: As of 3 pm EST today — Ottawa police have arrested 70 protesters and have laid a wide array of charges. #ottawa #ottawaconvoy
Interim Chief Steve Bell says the "methodical" plan to end the protests has moved "slowly and safely."

He says officers have been professional in the face of "taunts, slurs towards them." #cdnpoli #ottawa #ottawaconvoy
Interim Chief Bell says so far there have been no need to use Children's Aid to assist kids in the crowd.

He says it "shocks and surprises" him that they've seen children "put in harm's way" during the operation.

I will be voting against the Prime Minister’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act. In his own words the Prime Minister has said that the invocation of the Emergencies Act is not something to be done as a first or second resort

yesterday Justin Trudeau threw another temper tantrum in the House of Commons and walked out. His 4th time since last Monday. Unacceptable behaviour that is cowardly and weak

Video thread: As Ottawa declared a state of emergency Sunday, @Paulisconi filmed scenes of the occupation taking place at the Canadian capital.

The protesters, led by truckers, are demanding PM Trudeau lift COVID vaccine and testing requirements for border crossings.
One speaker at #TruckersConvoy2022 claimed "We are about freedom of choice" and identified himself as being double-vaccinated but said he objects to having to "show my papers to buy a sandwich."

"We will 'honk' the fascism away!"
Some at the #Ottawa occupation are not only anti-mandate, but anti-vax.

One speaker claimed that the necessity of booster shows shows that vaccines themselves are ineffective, comparing it to "gambling."

He accuses Premier of Ontario Doug Ford of profiting from the pandemic.

What is a municipal state of emergency? Lets review. A state of emergency by a city is declared persuant to section 4 of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. In this case by the Mayor of Ottawa. #OttawaConvoy /n
This allows the city to do 2 different things. fuller activation of certain components of its Emergency Management Plan and also provides the city with certain additional limted powers. You can read the city of Ottawa's Emergency Management Plan here…
A state of emergency represents the highest level of activition for the Emergency Management team which relies on an Operations centre to coordinate all tasks associated with an event. It provides situational awareness. The higher the level, the more senior coordination involved.

What the actual F??? Is this racist unhinged lunatic actually suggesting that explosives be unleashed? WTF? Tell me the political right hasn’t gone all in for fascism. #OttawaOccupation #FluTruxKlan #OttawaConvoy @rcmpgrcpolice #ONpoli
Given that @OttawaPolice announced earlier today that weapons were coming into this “convoy”. And AFTER that, Hillier tweets out images of fuel & bombs? #OttawaOccupation #OttawaConvoy #FluTruxKlan

Last night I went downtown to get a first hand look at the #ottawaconvoy protest. From online reports, I have found the use of train horns the most offensive element of the protest so I wanted to get a sense of it myself. #ottawa
It's important to note that I went on Tuesday night (5:30 - 7) after many of the weekend trucks had left. But a large number of trucks and protesters remained. The numbers were high enough to still feel like a full protest so I can't imagine what the weekend was like.
Many of the streets were lined with trucks and the sound of horns was constant. #ottawaconvoy

We just commemorated #HolocaustRemembranceDay and now everyone is talking about the moron with the Nazi flag at the #OttawaConvoy. So many people have claimed to stand against #antisemitism -- For those people I post probably the most important thread on Holocaust Education.

Today on convoy radio, they're encouraging each other to fires burning in the streets for warmth. Looks like it's gonna be another day

One of the trolls offered Cleveland steamers. I love the trolls

Listening to the truckers on Zello. Brittney the moderator has had a rough day and has no money or a place to stay. They're trying to help her but this kid wants to keep singing. And other truckers are looking for showers

Someone has told Brittney to go to a church
A lot of trolls inviting people to shit with them on Parliament Hill

Last night I detailed one of the main #misinformation narratives surrounding #TruckerConvoy2022 of "antifa" infiltrating the demonstration to discredit it via violence. There's been a few concerning updates 🧵

#cdnpoli #onpoli #OttawaConvoy #antivaxxers

So a few people have been taking this alleged threat very seriously and have been calling on convoy supporters to perform "citizens arrest" on those they suspect of being "antifa"

#cdnpoli #onpoli #OttawaConvoy #antivaxxers
Some convoy supporters even advocated on bringing zip ties in order to carry out citizens arrest on suspected "antifa" members

Out of all the #misinformation narratives surrounding the #TruckerConvoy2022, there is one that I think needs highlighting. There are claims that "antifa" has infiltrated the demonstrators and are planning for violence tomorrow. 🧵

#cdnpoli #onpoli #OttawaConvoy #antivaxxers
It's important to note that the universal belief of what "antifa" is in this context is a group paid by Justin Trudeau to riot and or stage a false flag attack in a similar vein to the January 6th incursion.

#cdnpoli #onpoli #OttawaConvoy #antivaxxers
This is of course a conspiracy theory, and not an original one either. There are numerous mentions of the #January6th incursion, where the similar claims of antifa infiltrators was spread in the aftermath

So for the past week I've been keeping an eye and an ear on the #TruckerConvoy2022 and tracking some of the prevailing narratives. Here's a rundown on the misinformation and concerning rhetoric I've been hearing

#ottawa #onpoli #antivaxxers #cdnpoli
First bit of misinformation is the number of trucks participating. The numbers range from 10,000 to 150,000 and seemingly got larger with media visibility. The most common number cited around 50,000, how this is almost certainly false

#cdnpoli #onpoli #antivaxxers #OttawaConvoy
Media reports have consistently put the number at about a few hundred at most with Kingston Police providing an exact count here
