Canada Freedom Convoy: The Blockade in front of Parliament has been Cleared by Police

Canadian police have cleared the blockade in front of the Ottawa Parliament Building. The streets around were "occupied" by trucks for nearly 3 weeks in protest.

The Freedom Convoy initially declared itself against mandatory vaccines, but later grew against all covid restrictions. 170 people have been arrested in the past two days.
