‘This is Canada it’s supposed to be a free country’, bridge blockade protesters speak out after police move in
Many demonstrators said their movement against COVID-19 mandates would continue.
WINDSOR, Ontario – Demonstrators at the Ambassador Bridge blockade in Windsor, Canada, slammed law enforcement and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after police cleared the protest Sunday morning.
“This is Canada, it’s supposed to be a free country,” one 83 years old-man named Joachim Machnic told Fox News. “We have the right to protest” and “now we’re even being denied the place to protest.”
The Ambassador Bridge, which connects roughly one-quarter of Canada-U.S. trade, has been blocked for nearly a week by demonstrators advocating for an end to COVID-19 mandates. On Friday, a Canadian court ordered protesters vacate the area.
Police began enforcing the order Saturday morning, but many demonstrators still remained that evening.
