Lawrence Greenspon does a media scrum after day two of a multi-week trial. Give it a listen!
As we head into day 3 of the trial and the prosecution presents it’s case, cracks in the official narrative are beginning to appear. Which should surprise no one.
The infamous line “not one inch” that had seemingly been attributed to convoy leaders often in tandem with “hold the line” was in all actuality the stance of the Ottawa Police.
We can see that Global News obfuscates what “not one inch” refers to and whose edict that actually was. By making a vague headline they are encouraging their readership to assume this was the stance of the convoy organizers. It was not.
It was the stance of Ottawa police higher ups.
Working with the Police Liaison Team (PLT), Lucas said there were plans to try and move some vehicles from congested intersections like Rideau and Sussex to gaps on Wellington Street.
Once I put the proposal through the chain of command, we were given the direction to give them “not one inch,” so that undermined the work of the PLT,”
Lucas told the court tha
t there were no flags on the behaviour of those in the convoys. He referenced positive interactions with police on the route to Ottawa, including obliging with a request to divert the convoy due to a police operation on the route.
Hubby and I protested this tyranny at the local level. Yes, we made signs and froze our buttocks off. There was no choice given the level, the absurd level of abuse and discrimination that was being dished out towards those that didn’t bow to the edicts of a governmental over reach. Canada was a dystopic nightmare. We still have our signs.
Too many lies. Too much abuse. It was and remains to this day a shocking episode in Canada’s history.
