    They may have had sufficient authority but they did not have the resources OR Political direction.

    You had Provincial Premiers all across this country afraid of their own Political base and who were FROZEN WITH FEAR and would not or could not make a decision.

    This was probably solved when president Biden got on the telephone and told Trudeau to get this resolved and suddenly everybody fell in line.

    Considering the vaccine mandates enlarged this occupation Trudeau should have gathered all the Premiers and held them responsible for all the individual loss of freedoms imposed on citizens.

It's a very sad day in Canadian history when our own government decides to seize bank accounts of peaceful protesters.
    As the Commissioner has stated in his report "the protesters did not want to be heard they wanted to be obeyed" that was not happening.

    Bank accounts were seized as foreign actors including Capitol Insurrectionists were sending money into Canada to help destroy our rule of law as they tried in the USA.

    You probably would not be saying that if you were an RCMP officer the targeted for murder or a citizen of Ottawa held hostage.

    4. Disobey court order.
    5. Criminal trespass ( Rideau Center, which was forced to close, putting close to 200 people out of work for the duration).

    Do not confuse apathy on behalf of law enforcement with legality.

    IF, the convoy protesters had stayed on point about message, then it might have had more credibility. However, the organizers chose to allow hangers on, and the disenfranchised to join...creating an environment of chaos, and lack of credibility.

    By contrast, look at the tractor convoy that occurred several years ago under Harper.
    Let me also add the catche of weapons found and the intended targets being RCMP officers.

    Let me add the criminal history of some of the so called organisers Tamara Lich and Pat King, a couple of self serving petty criminals living the high life of the donations sent to the protesters. Things were good for them until they got locked up and their credibility trashed under cross examination both at their own criminal hearing's and in front of the Commissioner. Any law abiding citizen in Canada should be ashamed to have associated themselves with some of these characters.

    Seeing as you did not watch much news maybe you could also look at the unlawful acts happening in Alberta and at the Windsor border and Coutts.

    Fortunately we do not follow opinions to get our own way we are required to follow the law or we would have anarchy. Plenty of stated law from the past to view on this subject.

    I will point out, you don’t share the same views as all the cops there, I’m friends with several. Was there some bad apples in the group of protesters sure, but those were a minority not a majority. I personally witnessed the man with the swastika get told to leave by protesters.
    They say the only good wolf is a dead wolf, If thatís the case than Iíve reformed many a wolf.

    While also blocking roads, harassing businesses, stealing food from the homeless. All the while demonizing mainstream media trying to cover the event. Guess its all about what you want to see or don't want to see.
