BREAKING: Reports of Ottawa Police Seizing Fuel From Truckers and Arresting ‘Freedom Convoy’ Protestors


Things continue to escalate in the Canadian capital.

Earlier tonight, we had breaking reports of Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson declaring a state of emergency due to the ongoing freedom convoy protests.

BREAKING: Ottawa Mayor Declares State of Emergency!

The latest reports show Ottawa Police going outright Gestapo on the convoy protestors to shut them down at all costs.

Video reports surfacing from the capital show armed police officers seizing fuel meant for the truckers.

Here's the footage:

We've also heard reports of Ottawa Police arresting people for bringing material goods to the Freedom Convoy truckers.

CTV News reported:

Ottawa police arrested "several people" on mischief charges for bringing material goods to the "Freedom Convoy" demonstrators, as police begin to crack down on the supply of fuel and materials flowing into the downtown core.

Demonstrators have been using vehicles, wagons and sleds to transport gasoline cans and propane canisters to trucks inside the 'red zone' around Parliament Hill as the ten-day demonstration against COVID-19 vaccine mandates continues.

Police announced on Twitter Sunday afternoon that, "Anyone attempting to bring material supports to the demonstrators could be subject to arrest. Enforcement is underway."

Deputy Chief Steve Bell told CTV News at Six this is the next step in the enforcement to deal with the ongoing protest downtown.

"Look at how we limit things moving in and out of the protest area," said Bell.

"We’ve really focused and targeted on removing the access of gasoline to the area and we’ve had several seizures and several arrests related to that.”

Police told CTV News Ottawa the charge is known as "Aiding and Abetting of Mischief" per the Criminal Code of Canada.

Is this what Ottawa Police considers mischief?

Rebel News added:

Sunday night, Rebel News received reports of possible police action against the trucker convoy protest taking place in the nation's capital. Rebel News reporter Lincoln Jay is on the scene capturing the events developing in the area.

The reports of arrests and fuel confiscations come just two days after Ottawa police promised a “surge and contain” strategy to deal with the peaceful anti-COVID restriction protest that landed in the city on January 27.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson declared a local state of emergency Sunday night to allow the city to take extraordinary measures to remove the truckers and their supporters.
