Been watching live streams out of Ottawa-
There are plenty to choose from at youtube: Ottawalks is on right now. TravelFun69. ZOT. ZOKE.
Lots of police on the ground. Lots. Plenty of people too.
The police confiscated the wood the truckers use for their wood fired pizza- Always served fresh, hot and free. A large tent had to be taken down as well- The police surrounded the people to ensure they took down the large tent- think of those ones that you see at outdoor get togethers (open front, covered top and sides) There is always drone surveillance.
I think the tent is back up? Not sure. The party is on! Music and dancing. At 5:50 pm. They have a dj from the sound of it. And there is a whole row of porta-potties.
Ontario declared a ‘state of emergency’ today. I’m in Ontario. So, here we go, again..
The Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association, meanwhile, has applied for an injunction that would bar protesters from blocking the Ambassador Bridge border crossing. The City of Windsor was granted intervenor status in the application, which is set to be heard on Friday.
Police resources are being poured into Windsor, Ont. to prepare for a potential operation to clear the blockade at the Ambassador Bridge, multiple sources have told Global News.
There are indications the bridge will likely be cleared within the next day, a senior government source added.
The development comes in the wake of Premier Doug Ford declaring a state of emergency in Ontario.
The injunction was granted
Protestors have until 7:00 pm to clear out the Ambassador Bridge- That’s just about 60 minutes away.. We’ll see what’s going to take place?
Convoy is heading to Toronto
Meanwhile in Ottawa- Day 15 earlier tense, now more festive. The crowd is huge. And it’s pouring rain and windy! There looks to be more people in Ottawa today- As the day goes into night the mood is becoming more festive
Ottawa is after an injunction against trucker convoy- Not sure why they need an injunction when Ottawa has declared a state of emergency?
What these campaigners are engaging in is borderline doxxing: posting a person’s name and other personal information on the internet, which often invites threats to personal and family safety
That can be dangerous, particularly if the internet comes after someone who was misidentified and wrongly accused. It’s also a matter of ethics and intention, says Casey Feisler, an assistant professor of information science at the University of Colorado, Boulder, who studies online communities and ethics. Do we want the person who is driving that truck to get fired and not have an income? Does that solve the injustice a person on the internet may feel?
This new form of online activism is making some people do things they wouldn’t normally do, she adds, and many of those involved may not realize in the moment of their anger that this behavior is not only unethical but illegal.
