Truckers block two vital USA-CAN bridges for a 3rd day


Wednesday marked Day Three of a standstill on two major bridges between Michigan and Canada that serve as a vital link for commerce between the two.

Traffic has been stopped for much of the week on Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge, causing massive delays in both the U.S. and Canada. Michigan Agri-Business Association President Chuck Lippstreu told Bridge Michigan that the partnership between the two is incredibly important to farmers in The Great Lakes State.

The convoy at the heart of the controversy, which calls itself the Freedom Convoy, was launched in response to new rules that took effect on January 22 requiring full vaccination status for truckers entering either country.

Trucking traffic was quickly rerouted to the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, which just as quickly became the second scene of backups by the convoy.

it’s amazing how much censorship of the news is being performed by the MSM and even the “conservative” outlets. The government of Canada has been allowed to portray these protesters as “violent” and “terrorists” and “fringe”, while GoFundMe stole $9 MILLION from the fund that was raised to support this perfectly legal and peaceful protest. The Ottowa Police Department was seizing fuel and food that was going to the truckers, then after a court ordered those goods to be returned people found out that water and sugar had been added to the diesel fuel by the police in order to destroy the trucker’s engines. Their version of CPS is taking children from the parents at the convoy in the name of “safety”, even though the crime rate at those locations has DECREASED since the protest started. Ottowa has also been strong arming hotels to turn truckers away instead of renting rooms to them.

The elites are scared of what the Freedom Convoy means, so they are working overtime to suppress information (and spread misinformation) about it.
