The sweeps have begun —the truckers are being removed by force. Videos have begun to surface on social media, showing the Ottawa Police officers employing more aggressive tactics.
“Thousands of police have surrounded the Ottawa convoy over the course of the past 90 mins. More continue to come in to back up the front line, which has been methodically pushing in, foot by foot. An air of panic on the ground. Starting to feel like the beginning of the end,” National Review’s Nate Hochman tweeted.
“Police are breaking into vehicles in Ottawa,” another observer wrote.
“Tear masks going on! Sticks and helmets are here,” said Michael Thiessen, president of Liberty Coalition Canada.
