The Ottawa Police Service in Canada is teaming up with federal Canadian intelligence agencies to launch a “surge and contain strategy” against the Freedom Truckers currently occupying the capital city of Ottawa in protest of the government’s vaccine mandate for truckers crossing the U.S. border. Leftist globalist prime minister Justin Trudeau has fled his home in Ottawa, marking a rare example in the modern West of peaceful protesters driving a head of state into exile. The truckers have brought joy back to Ottawa, playing a street pickup hockey game and even opening a free soup kitchen for the homeless and for patriots. But the Canadian establishment and leftist media are livid. In a hilarious development, the truckers are driving the leftists mad with their patriotic protest honking. Now, the Ottawa police is on the prowl for supposed “hate crimes” and “noise violations.” Will the police “surge” counteract the truckers’ hold on the city? The joyous truckers are not going anywhere.

“The Ottawa Police Service and its partners are implementing a surge and contain strategy in Ottawa’s downtown neighbourhoods to further protect neighbourhoods, restore order and prevent unlawful activity,” the Ottawa Police Service stated on Friday February 4. “In connection with ongoing demonstrations, Ottawa’s downtown residents and businesses continue to be severely impacted by unlawful acts, including harassment, mischief, hate crimes, and noise violations. We know that additional demonstrators are coming, and we are significantly increasing our policing resources to respond.”
Here are the strategies that the fuzz are rolling out, according to the Ottawa Police Service statement: “Major deployment of police officers in the downtown neighbourhoods: There will be approximately 150 additional uniformed and non-uniformed officers dedicated to only patrolling and addressing unlawful and threatening conduct in the most impacted neighbourhoods including: Centretown, Sandy Hill, Lowertown and the ByWard Market. This includes working with City and NCR officials to prevent unlawful and unsafe use of public space by demonstrators.
Expand and harden perimeter of the demonstration red zone: The Ottawa Police Service and City of Ottawa will be utilizing concrete and heavy equipment barricades to create no-access roadways throughout the downtown core. The City of Ottawa will be releasing a map of impacted roads later today. Protestor vehicles will be directed to designated parking zones outside of the downtown core. Illegal parking by demonstrators will result in by-law enforcement, removal and impound. If necessary, interprovincial bridges, highway off ramps and/or roads will be closed.
Enforcement directives: The surge of police officers will result in enforcement to restore public safety. This includes increased investigation enforcement and charges for all criminal acts related hate, harassment, assaults (including spitting), intimidation, and mischief.
Enhanced intelligence operations and investigations: National, provincial and local intelligence agencies have increased efforts to identify and target protestors who are funding/supporting/enabling unlawful and harmful activity by protestors. Investigative evidence-gathering teams are collecting financial, digital, vehicle registration, driver identification, insurance status, and other related evidence that will be used in criminal prosecutions. Every unlawful act, including traffic violations, will be fully pursued regardless of origin.
The primary focus of each of these measures will be on the unlawful behaviour connected to the ongoing demonstrations (including parallel and counter demonstrations).” (Passage from Ottawa Police Service statement concludes)
