CRA lied about truckers looting Ottawa office

Western Standard

The report was among several that falsely claimed the Freedom Convoy had turned violent.

The Canada Revenue Agency is refusing to comment on false reports it issued saying angry truckers were looting their offices, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The report was among several that falsely claimed the Freedom Convoy had turned violent.

CRA management in a bulletin to staff claimed it had “confirmation” truckers opposed to vaccine orders began raiding office building near their headquarters. Truckers were believed to be looting offices and causing property damage, it said.

CRA had confirmation? From the Easter Bunny? Or Santa Claus? Truckers were believed to beUnconfirmed claims about believing some thing should always be questioned.

There were no such raids.

The Ottawa Police Service confirmed it had not received any reports of looting and had not arrested any trucker for mischief, property damage, assault or other Criminal Code offence.

Still more lies

Reporters with The Canadian Press claimed protesters had accosted members of the public outside the Commons.

“Have any of your MPs been prevented from coming in the building, accosted, threatened, had any kind of of incidents with those in the convoy? We’ve heard of others,” a reporter asked Government House Leader Mark Holland.

“MPs I’ve spoke to have been able to access Parliament,” replied Holland, adding: “I came in this morning without any problems.


Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis (Haldimand-Norfolk, Ont.) accused critics of the Freedom Convoy of a double standard.

“We recognize the need to prevent protesters from interrupting and blocking critical care facilities like hospitals, but not railroads,” said Lewis.

VIA Rail in 2020 blamed Wet’suwet’en First Nation rail blockades in part for a $33.6 million loss in the first quarter of the year. Sympathy blockades by the Mohawk Nation saw Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller meet personally with protesters near Belleville, Ont.

We show up at protest and take a knee but hide from 100,000 truckers and citizens who are rallying for democracy,” said MP Lewis, referring to Black Lives Matter protests on Parliament Hill.
