The January 2022 Freedom Convoy protests still haunt Justin Trudeau like a spooky dog haunts a cat.
But Alberta’s new nationalist Premier Danielle Smith is now planning something that can scare the living daylights of Justin Trudeau.
She has shocked the Canadian Prime Minister with the plans of organizing another Freedom Convoy-like protest across Canada.
In January this year, when disgruntled Canadian truckers kickstarted the Freedom Convoy protests, hardly had Trudeau realized it will scar his political career for the whole of his life. Truckers rammed over Trudeau’s dictatorship and stood for freedom which caught Ottawa and the liberals of Canada off guard.
Trudeau resorted to using extreme emergency measures to avert a massive spontaneous civil uprising. Not only did he declare the convoy anti-national but also stripped them of all privileges that all Canadians are entitled to. But eventually, the liberal cabal managed to choke their funding, malign them and crush everyone who seemed to be standing with the Truckers.
But what Alberta’s new premier Danielle Smith has planned for Trudeau is definitely going to put him in a tight spot. She has decided to reopen Trudeau’s old wounds, inflicted on him by the Freedom Convoy.
Essentially, she is planning a Freedom Convoy 2.0, which is expected to be not only scarier (for Trudeau) but also more powerful than the previous one. For Trudeau, this is like his worst nightmare coming true. This version of the Truckers’ protest will be called the Alberta Convoy.
Leading the charge is Danielle Smith’s close aide Benita Pedersen. As per CTV News, a ‘Trudeau must go’ rally is being held at Acheson, Alta, from where the Alberta truckers’ convoy is expected to begin its journey. The organizer of the convoy Benita Pedersen said, “Some of the participants in the convoy will be finding a place to park near the legislature grounds so they can participate in the rally there, which is called Truck Trudeau.”
As per the plans, Truckers will keep driving around the city with flags in protest of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who Pedersen believes went overboard in imposing COVID-19 restrictions.
Even Police in Alberta has extended tacit support to the Convoy. The Edmonton Police Service in a statement said, “As with all public demonstrations, the EPS supports all citizens to exercise their right to peaceful assembly and all participants are welcome to express their views and actions within the law.”
As per Pedersen, “The freedom movement is gaining momentum and there’s a reason for that. It’s because the freedom movement resonates with Canadians.”
So, Alberta is all set to give Trudeau sleepless nights. The province has set the bar high for other conservative states as well, who are following Alberta’s suit to rid their governance of the federal government’s interventions.
Smith’s FREE ALBERTA campaign has already put the Trudeau government on thin ice. Her message to her countrymen, and also the Truckers is loud and clear, you are free to express yourself in Alberta, and that’s where Trudeau’s political grave will be dug with all pomp and glory.
