Canadian PM moved to secret location as anti-Covid rules protests flare-up

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family have left their home in the nation’s capital and relocated to a secret location, converted on Parliament Hill after mass protests, media reports said on Saturday. It is done.

What started as a protest dubbed as the ‘Freedom Convoy’ against the need for a vaccine for cross-border truck drivers has turned into a massive demonstration against the Trudeau government’s coronavirus rules. Thousands of truck drivers and other protesters gathered in the capital city on Saturday to call for an end to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate and other public health restrictions, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

Among the people were some children with their children, the elderly and people with disabilities. According to The Globe and Mail newspaper, some even pointed out offensive and obscene rhetoric, mostly directed at the Canadian prime minister.

Some protesters were seen dancing at the major war memorial, which was condemned by Canada’s top soldier, General Wayne Eyre and Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand.

Police are on high alert about possible violence after hundreds of protesters entered the parliamentary premises despite warnings of severe cold. “I am saddened to see protesters dancing at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and desecrating the National War Memorial. Generations of Canadians have fought and died for our rights, including free speech, but not this one. Those involved should bow their heads in shame,” tweeted General Wayne Eyre.

Anita Anand also condemned the incident, saying that “the behavior we are seeing today is condemnable.” “The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the National War Memorial are sacred sites for our country. I urge all Canadians to take their lives seriously, in honor of those who fought and died for Canada,” she said.

Police said around 10,000 people are expected to arrive by the end of the day. Media reports say the force did not have an official estimate of the size of the crowd as of Saturday evening.

On Friday, Trudeau told the media he was worried the protests would turn violent, but said the convoy represented a “small fringe minority” who “do not represent the views of the Canadian people.”
