Mounted Police Trample Protesters as Trudeau Regime's Brutal Crackdown

 By Cullen McCue  

Over 100 demonstrators were arrested on Friday after the Ottawa police
service began to dismantle the Freedom Convoy protests. Some protesters
were trampled by mounted police, including a handicapped elderly woman,
as riot cops advanced with support from armored vehicles and SWAT units.
Protesters remain camped outside Canadian federal buildings as of Friday
night, though Ottawa police have managed to significantly tighten the

Snipers were posted atop Ottawa buildings as hundreds of police officers
in riot gear began to surround Freedom Convoy protesters on Friday
morning. The police then began to close the perimeter around the
protesters, making arrests as they advanced. At one point, an
incapacitated man was kneed in the stomach by an Ottawa police officer
before being thrown on the ground and arrested. Ottawa police also
smashed truck windows and raided mobile homes with tactical units.

Ottawa Police have also reported that over 20 rigs have been towed away
from downtown Ottawa. After initially struggling to find willing tow
truck drivers, police brought in unmarked trucks to move the rigs. Tow
trucks with blacked out company insignias and no license plates could be
seen towing rigs away in a video captured by Reuters. The drivers of the
trucks also donned ski masks in order to conceal their identities.

In another incident, an elderly woman on a mobile scooter was trampled
by mounted police who plowed through a crowd of demonstrators. “We are
peaceful protest,” the woman can be heard saying in a mobile phone
video. Seconds later, a group of mounted police plowed through the
crowd, trampling both the handicapped woman and another protester, whose
head appeared to have been stomped on by a horse. Riot police then
rushed forward and surrounded the trampled protesters. 

The Ottawa Police service have claimed that a bicycle was thrown at the
mounted police officers who ended up trampling the unnamed woman. “We’re
unaware of any injuries. A bicycle was thrown at the horse further down
the line and caused the horse to trip. The horse was uninjured,” the
department said in a statement.

In a widely circulated aerial photo of the incident, the trampled
woman’s mobile scooter can clearly be seen on the ground. It is unclear
whether this is the “bicycle” referenced by the Ottawa Police Service.
It is also unlikely that the trampled protesters were able to walk away,
as police immediately pushed forward and surrounded them.

The brutal crackdown comes just a day after Freedom Convoy protest
organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber were arrested in downtown
Ottawa. Other protest leaders were later arrested on Friday while Lich
and Barber have been charged with “conspiracy to commit mischief”, which
is a serious offence in Canada that could lead to multiple years in
prison. Barber’s bond was set at $100,000 while Lich has a bail hearing
scheduled for Saturday morning.

The protesters have remained entirely peaceful despite a litany of
baseless claims from the Trudeau regime. Trudeau has repeatedly accused
protesters of having ties to “far-right groups” and “white supremacy”
despite the protest’s aims being entirely tied to COVID restrictions and
vaccine mandates. Among Freedom Convoy demands are an end to vaccine
mandates, relief for businesses affected by COVID lockdowns and the
rehiring of workers who were fired as a result of vaccine mandates.

Trudeau has refused to meet with the protesters, however, and instead
invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act for the first time in the nation’s
history. The act gives the Trudeau regime sweeping powers, including the
ability to freeze bank accounts belonging to dissidents. Trudeau has
promised that his new powers will be “time-limited.”
