In January 2022, a small group of Canadian truckers fed up with nearly two years of Covid restrictions and a new vaccine mandate for cross-border essential workers decided to take their frustrations directly to the nation's capital. The Freedom Convoy quickly took on a life of its own as hundreds of trucks and thousands of protesters made the journey to Parliament Hill. For the next three weeks, the trucker convoy led a protest unlike any other, complete with bouncy castles, pig roasts, and late-night dance parties. But to the media and government, it was a hate-filled insurrection requiring the unprecedented invocation of the federal Emergencies Act.

I wanted to keep an open mind but this is terrible and I have better things to do with my precious time. Lawton should have hired an editor for this self-published trash. ( )

This well written book by a journalist who was pepper sprayed by police in the Ottawa fiasco once the Emergencies Act passed to support police violence and arrests of citizens and when the freezing of protesters' bank accounts occurred. It gives a good look at the reaction of the truckers' concerns over Canadian government vaccine mandates and loss of freedoms and rights. This happened during the 3 week in downtown, very cold Ottawa in February 2022 when the convoy leaders repeatedly and consistently insisted on peaceful protesting. Lawton does a good job telling this shameful government mishandling and stories of the leaders and some of the behind the scenes events. There is more evidence for shameful mistrustful reporting too by the mainstream media to contribute to the challenges of these times.

There is presently an inquiry and resulting testimony that is supporting Lawton's narrative. ( )
