DAY FOUR Ottawa Freedom Convoy
No Violence No Looting, Just Street Hockey
OTTAWA, ONTARIO ~~~~~~ February 1, 2022 (LSNews) Ottawa Police Chief Sloly remarks during Media availability - January 31, 2022.
No injuries, no deaths, no riots in the last four days in the nation's capital, even though we have a global cause, national protest. Tens of thousands of individuals from a wide variety of causes gathered to actively demonstrate 24 hours a day for the last four days. All of that, coupled with thousands of heavy trucks, SUVs and cars driving into the city and congregating in the core of this city, 24 hours a day for four days a week.
There were reports of denial of service—injuries and trauma-related directly to the demonstration. I can tell you that is not true. We have verification from ambulance services, fire services and police services that while they were delays in responses and, in some instances, gaps in services delivery, nobody was directly affected regarding ambulatory service requirements or emergency services requirements. Despite the massive traffic chaos and gridlock that we saw, not just in the core but on our major access ingress routes in the bridges to 400 series highways, that is an incredible level of coordination and professionalism that was demonstrated over the last four days.
the situation of the demonstration has scaled down over the last 12 hours. We want that trend to continue until this demonstration comes to a complete end. I cannot guarantee you that right now. Still, I can guarantee you that every effort that negotiation and coordination, de-escalation has continued throughout the last four days and will continue until the complete end of this demonstration.
Only In Canada you say
Sure is a difference from the BLM Protests
"Contrary to some, there are thousands of passionate, patriotic, and peaceful Canadians on the Hill right now, who just want to be heard," Portage—Lisgar MP Candice Bergen said Monday in the Commons, causing an uproar.
