The convoy united disparate groups who don’t often see eye to eye on politics – French Canadians and alienated westerners, Indigenous people and suburban Ontarians, libertarians and social conservatives – under the banner of freedom.
Well written and so insightful. Thanks for your coverage on this over this past month! And for literally 'putting your body on the line'.
"The convoy’s greatest contribution to the cause of freedom was revealing how far the state is prepared to go to stop those who seek it."
Very well put! Now that we know how fragile our freedoms are, hopefully we'll become more vigilant in protecting them. Our federal government has some very worrisome ideas about civil rights, but I'm glad to see progress, and I'm grateful to my fellow Canadians who pushed for it. (Politicians' repeated avowals that it had "nothing to do with the convoy" are just comical. Whatever you need to tell yourselves, guys.)
I am!! Wonderful weekend here in Orlando. I'm sad to be returning to the Gulag.
Well done, Andrew.
