Finally for real!Ontario has declared a state of emergency!The Ottawa truck march is in its third week and the government is finally getting serious!At 10:30 this morning, Ontario Premier Rob Ford declared a state of emergency in the province at a press conference.Blockades and obstructions of the transport of goods, persons and services during a state of emergency are illegal and punishable.Anyone who fails to comply could face a fine of up to 100,000 yuan and up to a year in jail.”This will include protecting border crossings, 400-series highways, airports, ports, Bridges and railways,” ford said.It will also include the protection of emergency and medical services, public transport, municipal and provincial roads and essential access to sidewalks.””The fines for non-compliance are heavy, with a maximum fine of $100,000 Canadian and up to one year in jail,” Ford said.We will also provide additional authority to consider revoking the personal and commercial driver’s license of anyone who fails to comply with these orders.”On Feb. 11, the Ontario government obtained an order from the High Court barring truck demonstrators from accepting charitable donations through GiveSendGo, a Christian crowdfunding site.”The Attorney-general applied to the High Court for an order under Section 490.8 of the Penal Code prohibiting any and all monetary donations made through the Freedom Motorcade 2022 and Adoption Truck campaign pages on the GiveSendGo online fundraising platform from being disposed of or otherwise disposed of by any person,” Governor Ford noted.”Adopt a Truck Driver,” created by Chris Garrah, is one of the fundraising programs to help truck drivers in need of “housing, water, food, shelter and shuttle service.”As of Thursday (10th), The “Freedom Team 2022” campaign had raised 8.4 million yuan, while the “Adopt Truck Driver” campaign had amassed more than 686,000 yuan.GiveSendGo, a Christian crowdfunding site that claims to be free, seems to be responding to the court’s action: Canada has no jurisdiction over how we manage our money.Last week, GoFundMe, the globally recognized crowdfunding site, removed its donation page for Team Liberty 2022.It began offering full refunds after raising more than 10 million yuan to support what it described as “violent and other illegal activities.”GoFundMe said that after reviewing “relevant facts and multiple discussions with local law enforcement and city officials,” the fundraising campaign violated its terms of service (which prohibit promotion of violence and harassment) and has since been removed.Hundreds of GoFundMe donations came from donors claiming to be located outside Canada.This includes anonymous donations from various countries, including the US, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Australia.Truck convoy protest organizer: We are ready to be arrested!’We are ready to be arrested,’ said Tom Marazzo, the Freedom convoy organizer, at a news conference Late Wednesday.Mr. Marazzo said city officials and law enforcement had put a lot of pressure on the Freedom convoy in the past few days. ‘If any protesters are arrested, we are ready to be detained peacefully,’ he said.The Freedom Convoy has a team of pro bono lawyers in the capital offering a full service to drivers and protesters to help with any fines and even a dime, convoy organizers said.Marazzo reiterated that the demonstration was not directed at Ottawa city and its residents, but at the federal government.And he says the protesters have no interest in meddling in internal political conflicts.Calling us a peaceful convoy and saying protesters “will not be tricked into violence,” he claimed the convoy had been stigmatized and that elected officials were trying to incite violence.Marazzo also said the protesters were not afraid of Canadian troops. He said everyone in the convoy was there for their children.I’m sorry if you can’t understand that.Marazzo said he tried to sit down with Prime Minister Trudeau to find a way to resolve the issue, but trudeau did not want to end it through his leadership.So he wants to sit down with all the opposition parties and talk about it.Tom Marazzo was identified not as a truck driver, but as a Seneca College teacher.On Wednesday, Trudo said he was firm on vaccine authorization and travel rules as some provinces lifted COVID-19 restrictions.The Prime Minister stressed that the Federal Government would always be guided by science in making these decisions.Marazzo stressed at a news conference that the protesters and organizers had no interest in talking to the mainstream media, saying it was unfair.
