Ottawa police seize fuel from peaceful protestors against covid vaccine mandates in Canada.
Ottawa police have begun to seize fuel and say they have made multiple arrests after issuing a statement saying that those trying to bring supplies to support the thousands of protesters opposed to COVID-19 mandates and restrictions gathered in the city would be arrested.
“IMPORTANT: Anyone attempting to bring material supports (gas, etc.) to the demonstrators could be subject to arrest. Enforcement is underway,” Ottawa police said in a statement on social media on Feb. 6 in the early afternoon.
In a statement issued at 9 p.m. local time, police said they have arrested seven people. The arrests were for mischief charges throughout the day.
Police also said they had seized multiple vehicles and fuel containers.
Ottawa protesters said police didn’t arrest them on Feb. 6 for carrying fuel, but gave them a warning that they would be facing arrest for bringing in fuel to the covid vaccine mandate protest site starting on Feb. 7.
Earlier on Feb. 6, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson declared a state of emergency, which he said, “highlights the need for support from other jurisdictions and levels of government.”
Covid vaccine mandate protest organizers say their demonstration is peaceful.

The protest started as a demonstration by truckers against the federal government’s requirement for cross-border truck drivers to be vaccinated, but has since evolved into a large movement joined by people from across Canada to oppose different COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.
Vehicle convoys came to Ottawa on Jan. 29, and many have stayed in the city, with trucks and other vehicles parked by Parliament Hill. Many protesters say they will remain until the mandates are lifted.
Ottawa Police Seize Fuel From Peaceful Protestors
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), a legal group representing the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa, said “police would be breaking the law if police attempt to intimidate or arrest people who bring food or other supplies to truckers who are peacefully exercising their Charter rights and freedoms in Ottawa.”
“People who bring food, water, gasoline or other supplies to peacefully protesting truckers are not breaking any law. There is no basis for this police threat,” JCCF lawyer Nicholas Wansbutter said in a statement.
“In a free and democratic society that is governed by the rule of law, citizens can freely associate with each other, including the giving and receiving of goods and gifts. There is no law that would allow the Ottawa Police to arrest people for giving fuel or food to another Canadian.”
Protest organizers say they are willing to talk with the government, but so far no government representatives have contacted them.
“The first thing they’ve got to do is call us. … We’re sitting here, we’re waiting by the phone,” protest organizer Benjamin Dichter said in a press conference in Ottawa on Feb. 6.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he won’t be meeting with the protesters.
It’s obvious the Ottawa police are against the people. Seems the Ottawa police can’t tell the difference between freedom and tyranny.
What’s going to happen if the truckers decide to stop delivering food and fuel to all of Ottawa?
God bless these truckers for standing up against tyranny and God bless the people aiding them in the fight against vaccine mandates.
This is NOT about a virus that was planned, this is about control over the people. It’s been 2 years already and politicians are continuing the beat down of our freedom. When will you not comply? When will you not obey? When do you choose FREEDOM?
As the days and weeks and months march on, it becomes more clear the governments of the world are the enemy.
Trudeau’s regime is tyrannical. We used to know what to do to tyrants. What we are lacking are fearless leaders like George Washington and those leading the French Revolution.
Every movement needs a leader who will fight for the people.
Nations under tyranny need brave figureheads that aren’t afraid to speak truth to power and who will walk the walk and not just talk the talk.
Most people are followers. Very few are leaders.
Too many people are afraid and tyrants feed and grow fat on fear.
