Kelowna, B.C. CLEAR Mega Rally and Ottawa Trucker’s Report

Ottawa Trucker’s Rally Report

It was a long trip to Ottawa, fraught with hours of snow, treacherous roads, and slow moving vehicles…but make it we did. Winnipeg has huge volumes of snow everywhere!

On Friday morning we attempted to get in via the Rideau Centre bridge, over the Rideau Canal. Hundreds of police from Toronto, Ottawa, RCMP, Quebec were present. Drones, snipers everywhere. Tow truck drivers who gave up their morals and ethics for a paycheque, were seen to bust into a camper, breaking windows and hauling out the person and arresting him. A woman attempted to stand in front of a semi-truck, as visible thrown to the ground by at least six cops and was clearly seen to be assaulted.


They then towed the camper and proceeded to haul out the semi-trucks.


Cops barricaded the bridge preventing anyone from crossing. All exits to downtown from the 417 were simultaneously blocked by police. By this time, we began to walk back to the car and try and get downtown from another entrance point. We had to drive later to Quebec and enter from one of the bridges there. And was it cold…-15 with strong winds blowing in from the Ottawa River. I think we have been acclimatized to the Okanagan too long for this type of weather!


Prior to leaving, Bettina from the World Wide Rally was scheduled to speak at a special meeting in Vernon on Sunday. Thank you to supporters at this meeting for their generous donations which we distributed to the truckers. Some of them were even locally from B.C. (Keremeos and Abbotsford). A couple of them actually looked like they were going to cry when I told them the donation was from our Vernon BC freedom activists. CLEAR and the WWR further helped out some additional truckers. There was so much appreciation from them it was hard for us not to cry. The emotional energy was amazing and inspiring, not just from the truckers, but everyone present. Several truckers told me that they were in tears driving at the support they got along the way. An insight many of us were not privy to because each driver was in his/her own truck. Those are people with true feelings.


It was amazing to talk to the truck drivers and people present – thousands. The media reports are not exaggerated – they are falsified. There is no violence of any kind anywhere. Just love – everyone says hi to each other whether stranger or not. Where else do you see that in Canada today?


We were grateful to be able to go into the heated tent area and meet more people and I witnessed actual homeless people be allowed in to eat as well. These people are not the terrorists that Trudeau and the media portrayed them to be – but we all knew that to begin with, didn’t we?


On our way back later that night, the Quebec police had set up gates and were letting people out but refusing entry. Same with Saturday morning. At this time as we were going to try and get across again, I noticed that the wood on one of the bridge sidewalks had been removed from one side of the bridge. Interesting.


So, we traveled until we got to the Confederation Bridge and were able to get across there and park about a 30 minute walk away – again in bitterly cold weather and sustained 40-50 KPH winds.


It was wonderful to see Kyle, Sarah (from the Resistance), Marcus Ray, Dan Dicks, Laura Lynn, and others, as well as local friends.


Things had changed significantly overnight and in the early morning. Almost all trucks were gone and the police had pushed everyone from the Rideau Bridge all the way to the Confederation Building, at Wellington and Bank St.


Cops would push with their batons and then stop. People tried to set up a chain but were pushed back by the brute force of these terrorist “law enforcement” officers – a difference I have said for years is much different than a peace officer.


A tank of some sort was behind the front-line cops, (these aren’t cops – they are glorified military officers in times of peace) who all had pepper spray and used it profusely on innocent people.


At some point, a large number of officers left only to cross over and come back down Sparks St., with another tank. Horses then followed up behind on Wellington St., however they too left after about 45 minutes or so. The crowd by this time, had they desired to so do, could have pushed the remaining police back – there were many more of us at this time than the police. But as a testament again to the peace loving nature of the protesters, no such attempt was made of any offensive action.


We stayed for hours again in this bitterly cold weather and wind. Many people were having to leave by this time, many with icicles on them. It is difficult to describe this cold wind – and unfortunately though we were prepared for cold, we were not prepared for this wind. Finally, after hours of a stand off, we were simply too frigidly cold to be of much use and had to leave. Shortly after, long time B.C. freedom supporter Kyle Cardinal was hit with rubber bullets which destroyed his camera.


The new Ottawa Police Chief fill in, held press conferences lying to the press that we were assaulting them. I witnessed no such assaults other than the police pepper spraying innocent protesters. Nor did anyone else.


The police meanwhile were filming everyone in attendance and the police chief fill in has warned their investigation will continue for months and more charges will be laid. For what? This Emergencies Act Order will go down in history as the largest unlawful and unconstitutional use of power in the history of Canada.


MSM of course was there, to cover only those parts to support the gov’t narrative.


No doubt Trudeau has been on his knees to Jagmeet Singh of the NDP to get his support for the passage of this Emergencies Act. If Trudeau fails on Monday in either the House or the Senate, it will be a non-confidence vote and an election will have to be called. Trudeau knows full well he will never get re-elected right now, as does Singh, and thus is likely offering Singh anything he wants.


The truckers have relocated to a location to be kept silent for the time being. But they will be back – and so will we!!!

Ex post facto

Now the Gov’t and police propaganda wheels begin. They are now personally attacking the leaders. False allegations will be made, including criminal charges, in order to convince the gullible MSM public that people who love and organize for freedom, are terrorists.


Watch in the media, especially from the Ottawa police, as they begin to attack everyone attending these rallies in the public MSM, on the direct instructions from the PMO and Freeland.


Speaking of Freeland, she is using this protest as a basis to immediately give FINTRAC more powers to steal your property. The Emergencies Act Order will continue the Gov’t says, but refuses to say for how long. This is frightening as now, the alleged reasons for the Order, ie: the protests, are over in Ottawa, and the ability of the police anywhere in Canada to now steal your property and arrest and beat you without cause, still remains.

Freeland – you need to be in the jail cell next to Trudeau!

Special Thanks:

To all those people involved in the border protests throughout BC over the past few weeks. Thousands more amazing freedom loving people who refuse to believe the gov’t narrative.


Here are just a couple of pictures from the incredible Osoyoos border protest on Saturday, with an estimated 2000 in attendance. Combined with Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon, we are approaching 4000 people now publicly objecting to these lockdowns just in the Okanagan! And there are tens of thousands more who are simply unable or fearful to attend. We are the majority!

February 26, 2022 12:00 noon Stuart Park

Kelowna – CLEAR MEGA RALLY & MEGA MARCH!

Featuring some of Canada’s leading advocates for freedom:

Tanya Gaw Action4Canada
Ted Kuntz Vaccine Choice Canada
Beatrice Weir Vernon Activist
Jennifer Vaccine injured speaker

Immediately after our rally at Stuart Park, we will begin the CLEAR MEGA MARCH through downtown Kelowna onto Harvey St. (Hwy 97)! This MARCH is incredibly exciting and inspiring and brings out the best in freedom supporters. It demonstrates to the entire City, Province, and to the world that we continue to be one of the largest anti-lockdown areas of B.C., and with the lowest vaccination rate!

With the longest Freedom marches in the BC Interior, you can participate in our ongoing historical opposition to gov’t tyranny. Support in the public is higher now than ever! So too is the need to public visibility.


With the Trudeau Gov’t now planning increased FINTRAC powers and ongoing rights and freedoms deprivations, and Bonnie the Commie clearly not quitting in her attempts to impose Communism under the guise of concern for your health, “it ain’t over” and we need your ongoing peaceful participation to these rallies/protests and refusal to comply with all Gov’t COVID-29 mandates.


We will return to Stuart Park after the highway for socializing and greetings!


NOTE: BC Gov’t attempts to infiltrate and ruin our Freedom Rally – and FAILS!!!


Despite recent attempts by a Provincial Interior Health official, Elliot Penner, to organize a counter rally, only about 10 people showed up, compared to 1000 in support for freedom! Attempts have been made previously at counter protests which have all failed miserably, confirming that our support for freedom remains the dominant force. Even those advocated by the Provincial Government, are wretchedly failing. Clearly Elliot Penner was not acting on his own but in his capacity as an IH official.

Emergencies Act passes crucial House of Commons vote with NDP support

A motion affirming the Liberal government’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act passed a crucial House of Commons vote Monday, ensuring the expansive powers contained in the act remain in use by authorities thanks to parliamentary support from the New Democrats. 


While the powers contained in the Emergency Act took effect immediately, the Liberal government needed to seek approval for its decision to invoke the act from the House of Commons within seven days. If that vote had failed, the emergency declaration would have been revoked. 


Conservative MPs in the House booed and shouted “shame” when the first NDP MPs stood up to vote in favour of the motion. The Conservatives, however, applauded Bloc Québécois MPs when they stood to support the Conservatives.


The Liberals cheered loudly, drowning out heckles from the Conservatives when Green MP Elizabeth May voted in favour of the motion, which passed by a vote of 185 to 151.


Immediately after the vote passed, interim Conservative Leader Candice Bergen stood up and tried to enter a motion recalling the use of the Emergencies Act, but that motion was ruled out of order. 

Earlier in the day Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defended his government’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act in response to protesters occupying some streets in downtown Ottawa, saying the decision to trigger the act was not one he and his government took lightly.


“It became clear that local and provincial authorities needed more tools to restore order and keep people safe,” he said.


Trudeau was asked if the deployment of the act is still necessary, now that police have cleared the area in front of Parliament Hill. He said his government wouldn’t keep the enhanced powers provided for under the act in place “a single day longer than necessary.”

The Liberal government was able to extend the Emergencies Act after receiving the “reluctant” support of the NDP. But anger over Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to invoke it remains, with Conservatives and Bloc members calling it unnecessary. 4:27


“Even though things seem to be resolving very well in Ottawa, this state of emergency is not over,” he said.


Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino, who was with Trudeau at his news conference, said a number of people affiliated with the protests remain in the city.


“We have to remain vigilant, and not only in Ottawa but at our ports of entry,” he said, referring to a number of blockades at Canada-U.S. border crossings, including Coutts, Alta., and Windsor, Ont.

Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino says the state of emergency is not ready to be lifted, but all of government agrees it will not stay in place any longer than necessary. 2:30

Last week, the federal Liberals invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time since its passage in 1988 to deal with an anti-vaccine mandate protest that had been occupying downtown Ottawa for weeks. The measures set out in the act have been in effect ever since.

The New Democrats indicated early on that they would support the government’s use of the act but urged the Liberals to tread carefully, and said they are reserving the right to pull support at any time.


“We share the concern of many Canadians that the government may misuse the powers in the Emergencies Act, so I want to be very clear: We will be watching. We will withdraw our support if, at any point, we feel these powers are being misused,” NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh told the House at the start of the debate on Thursday.

Singh again promised his party’s “reluctant support” for triggering the Emergencies Act early Monday, saying New Democrats are prepared to trigger a second vote if they decide that the measures provided for under the act are no longer necessary.


“It’s not a blank cheque. We are prepared to pull our support as soon as … the act is no longer needed,” he said Monday.


The act states that it cannot be in force for more than 30 days from the date it was invoked, in this case Feb. 14.


Singh said New Democrats would not support its use for that long and called on the government to provide regular updates to MPs.

Singh says his party reserves the right to pull its support on the use of the Emergencies Act if certain criteria are no longer met. 2:19


At least two Liberal MPs expressed doubts about the continued use of the act in the lead up to the vote. 


Ontario MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith said that despite reservations he would support the motion because the vote was a question of confidence — one that would trigger a general election if the government loses.


“I’m not convinced that the emergency measures should continue to exist beyond today,” he said during the House of Commons debate on Monday.


“The disagreement I’ve expressed here does not amount to non-confidence, and I have no interest in an election at this time.”


Quebec MP Joël Lightbound echoed Erskine-Smith, saying he would vote against the use of the act if it wasn’t a confidence vote.

Conservatives, Bloc oppose use of act

The at-times tense and personal debate over the Emergencies Act has pitted the Liberal government against the Conservatives and Bloc Québécois, a combination Liberal MP Kevin Lamoureux referred to as an “unholy alliance.”


Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre, who is seeking his party’s leadership, accused Prime Minister Trudeau of engineering the crisis for political gain.


“They have attempted to amplify and take advantage of every pain, every fear, every tragedy that has struck throughout this pandemic in order to divide one person against another and replace the people’s freedom with the government’s power,” he said Saturday.

The Conservatives argued that the protests did not rise to the level of an emergency and did not warrant the use of extraordinary powers.


Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet said the government didn’t need to invoke the Emergencies Act — that what it needed to do was to provide Ottawa police with additional officers to remove the protesters.


“The police did its job, and it’s a wonderful job which has been done here in the last few days, and by itself it is a proof that this law never had to be used in anyway,” he said outside of Parliament Hill on Monday.

RCMP says it’s not going after small donors

Some Conservative MPs have suggested that police could freeze the bank accounts of small donors who may have given money to the protest early on.


In a statement released Monday, the RCMP said it has provided banks only with the names of organizers and owners of trucks who had refused to leave the protest area.


“At no time did we provide a list of donors to financial institutions,” the statement said.


Police have succeeded in dislodging protesters from their main encampment near Parliament Hill and have established a secure perimeter with fencing. Authorities have towed the vehicles that have occupied much of the city’s downtown core for more than three weeks.


In defending their decision, Liberals have pointed repeatedly to comments made by interim Ottawa police Chief Steve Bell on Friday. Bell said the Emergencies Act allowed police to set up barriers and secure an area in the city’s downtown.


The Senate must also vote on the act’s use but debate has not started yet in that chamber.

File # 2022-310

Houston RCMP is presently investigating an incident where individuals allegedly engaged in a violent confrontation with employees of Coastal GasLink, and with attending police officers along the Morice River Forest Service Road near Houston, BC.

On Thursday, February 17, 2022, shortly after midnight, Houston RCMP was called to the Marten Forest Service Road (FSR) after Coastal Gas Link (CGL) security reported acts of violence at their work site.

It was reported approximately 20 people, some armed with axes, were attacking security guards and smashing their vehicle windows. It was initially reported that some CGL employees were trapped, but all had managed to safely leave the area.

Upon police attendance at the 41 km mark, the roadway had been blocked with downed trees, tar covered stumps, wire, boards with spikes in them, and fires had been lit throughout the debris. As police worked their way through the debris and traps, several people threw smoke bombs and fire lit sticks at the police, injuring one officer.

At the 43 km mark, an old school bus blocked the road. No one was located in this area and with the assistance of CGL, the bus was cleared from the road and police continued on.

When police arrived at the drill pad at the 63 km mark, they found significant damage had been done to heavy machinery, fencing, and portable buildings. Police did not encounter any further blockades or protestors as they made their way to the drill pad nor did they locate anyone at the site. The cost of damage done is extensive as seen in the photos.

“This is a very troubling escalation in violent criminal activity that could have resulted in serious injury or death. This was a calculated and organized violent attack that left its victims shaken and a multimillion dollar path of destruction,” says Chief Superintendent Warren Brown, North District Commander. “While we respect everyone’s right to peacefully protest in Canada, we cannot tolerate this type of extreme violence and intimidation. Our investigators will work tirelessly to identify the culprits and hold them accountable for their actions.”The RCMP is appealing to the public for assistance about the incident. This type of criminal activity and level of violence impacts the entire community, so we are urging anyone that has any information about the individuals involved to contact the Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204.

Man arrested after three fires set at separate B.C. Masonic lodges

PRATYUSH DAYAL

VANCOUVER

PUBLISHED 14 HOURS AGO

UPDATED MARCH 30, 2021

Fire fighters tend to a fire at a Masonic Temple in North Vancouver on March 30, 2021.

JONATHAN HAYWARD/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Vancouver Police have arrested a man on arson charges after three Masonic lodges were set ablaze Tuesday, but why the facilities for the 300-year-old international service fraternity were targeted is not clear.

Constable Tania Visintin said the 42-year-old suspect is known to police, but not for anything related to arson. The three fires were set within an hour of each other, two in North Vancouver and one in east Vancouver. The police declined to identify the suspect.

“Officers were able to swiftly arrest the alleged suspect and we’re thankful that no one was injured,” Constable Visintin said. “Our investigators are looking to see if they all are connected … We are not too sure what his plan was.”

North Vancouver RCMP were notified of a fire at the Lynn Valley Lodge just before 6:45 a.m. and the fire was put out around 7 a.m.

“There’s heavy fire damage on the exterior of the front entrance,” said Jeremy Duncan, assistant fire chief at the District of North Vancouver. “It happened very early in the morning and we’re very fortunate that the neighbours saw it early and called 911.”

Shortly after, North Vancouver RCMP were notified of a second fire at Duke of Connaught Lodge No. 64 in Lonsdale, a 10-minute drive away. The lodge was part of a building that was heavily damaged in the blaze.

“Huge plume of smoke, it was quite dramatic. There were at least four fire trucks there placing water on the fire,” said Sergeant Peter DeVries of the North Vancouver RCMP.

“Certainly alarming.”

Just before 7:30 a.m., a third fire was reported to first responders at the Masonic Temple near Rupert Street and East 29th Avenue in Vancouver.

The fire was extinguished quickly and didn’t cause extensive damage. The building dates back to the early 1900s and housed a library of old books, art and photographs.

Venessa Stonehouse is the owner of a restaurant in the same unit as the Masonic hall in Lonsdale. She said she was notified about the blaze at 7 a.m. She rushed to her business and sat in a nearby parking lot as she watched the “devastating” flames.

“My business is gone. The whole building is decapitated. It’s gone,” she said.

“I watched the last six years of my life burn to the ground. I’m shocked.”

Cole Harvey, a Masonic member, said he had no idea why his group was targeted.

“We’ve never heard any negative words or negative intents directed towards us,” he said in an interview as fire crews blasted water at the smouldering North Vancouver Masonic Centre

“I’m just absolutely shocked and quite heartbroken.”

Constable Visintin said an off-duty police officer witnessed a man exit the third building.

“The building was partially on fire. He confronted this man, a physical fight ensued between the man and the off-duty police officer and then that suspect did leave,” Constable Visintin said, but she declined to answer whether the man confronted by the officer is the same one who has been arrested.

Masonic lodges are the meeting quarters of the Freemasons. The group was founded more than 300 years ago as a trade organization and continues today as a social group for men that operates around the world.

The police aren’t aware of any past threats to these centres and wouldn’t speculate on why they were attacked now.

“We’re still in the early stages of this investigation, so we don’t have the answers as to the motive,” Sgt. DeVries said.

“A review of any history involving the locations that were targeted would be part of that investigative process, but at this time we don’t know, we would like to know and we hope we will find out.”
