By TONY MOBILIFONITIS TRUCKERS from the US are crossing the Canadian border to join the thousands of their Canadian comrades pouring into the Canadian capital Ottawa in a massive pro-freedom rally. Aussie truckers are heading to Canberra with the same message.
The GoFundMe campaign for the Canadian protest is approaching $6 million. Concerns over distribution of the funds were sorted out and money was being distributed for truck fuel, drivers’ fuel and accommodation. One supporter’s son organised 1800 gift cards.
Drivers can sleep in cabs but with sub-zero Canadian winters, it’s not the best option, although diesel and electric cabin heaters help the cause. One trucker in the Ottawa area reported -23C. Another -25C. Supporters were urged to bring extra clothing to cope with the cold.
The progress of the rally could be listened to live on a YouTube Channel linked to a Zello walkie talkie app. Listeners including children worldwide chimed in with short messages from as far afield as Sweden, the UK, Australia and Alaska. “You’re all angels,” a cockney voice from the UK said. “We’re standing with you,” a young girl said.
Organisers stayed continually in touch on the radio app, ensuring convoys converged smoothly and giving traffic updates. Moderators dealt with technical issues and blocked potential trouble makers. Truckers were encouraged with official support coming from Donald Trump Jnr. Canada Post workers, plumbers and health care workers also posted messages of support.
Organisers scoffed at media reports that there would be 2000 gathering in Ottawa. “Let them think that and get a surprise,” someone quipped.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen’s nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no ‘government’ of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
