National Post: Military tells Ottawa to find someone else to evict the truckers

Appears to be good news from Canada:

Despite the Ottawa Police briefly raising the possibility of a military intervention to clear a stubborn holdout of Freedom Convoy truckers blockading their downtown, the Canadian Armed Forces have been quick to say they will be doing no such thing. A spokesperson for the Minister of Defence told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, “The Canadian Armed Forces are not involved in law enforcement in this situation, and there are no plans for such CAF involvement.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said Thursday that a military response is “not in the cards right now.” “One has to be very, very cautious before deploying military forces in situations engaging Canadians,” he said.

    Deploying the military against your own citizens I never a good idea if you want to continue the illusion that you are a free country.

    I pass along this suggestion. Since we are willing to send US military to far off places, with no national interest, and not deploy them against the invasion we’re experiencing at our Southern border, it has been suggested that the truckers should focus their block-aiding on that same Southern border. Stop all trade into/out of Mexico at the border crossings, and watch the Mexican gov’t solve that illegal immigration issue in a heart beat. Trump did it with a mere threat. Time to get real.
