Woodstock Summer of Love Meets Ottawa Truck Protesters Winter of Love: An Unfiltered Frontline Report

by | Feb 8, 2022 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am a long-time Ottawa native, who, in my past, lived, worked, and shopped literally a few blocks from ground zero of the current events there. I even had my wedding reception and spent my first wedding nights of what you see in the background of the pictures and videos (don’t worry, we headed out south for a honeymoon a few days later…. I’m not that cheap!). My best man still lives a couple of blocks from the pictures you are seeing. 

The goal of this article is simple: There are a number of videographers who are – in contrast to the explicitly fraudulent Canadian Broadcasting Corp., CTV, and others in what passes for “news – simply on the ground recording, without comment, what is going on on the ground. Ottawalks is one place to start. The 4kGuy such as here is another. At least until YouTube bans them, too. 

I daresay once you watch even a small part of these videos, you will come to the conclusion that, sadly, our mainstream media is simply lying through their teeth. How do I know? I lived there. I know each block of these streets. I even know how to walk home in the rain from downtime to my old place in Lowertown when I have forgotten my umbrella and don’t want to get too wet, by cutting through various buildings, past other buildings with awnings, through Hudon’s Bay and its overpass, etc. 

From the Iron Curtain to Canada

What is the protest really about? Here is a Romanian refugee from communism under Nicolae Ceaușescu explaining exactly why the protest is occurring. (And for your reference, here is a brief primer on Ceaușescu so you aren’t one of those whom, as philosopher George Santayana wrote, Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it). This ordinary, salt-of-the-earth trucker sees eerily similar tendencies in Mr. Trudeau as he saw in Communist Romania. Hear him speak, in his own words, at the link above, unfiltered by the rich media elite (and recall that as the truckers were given $10 million from GoFundMe, which this corrupt group later basically stole, that Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was given $1.2 billion dollars, so they can use your own taxpayer money against you. And, of course, with that kind of money,  you can surmise CBC elite are not bringing peanut butter sandwiches to work like us flyover country serfs!).   

This Romanian trucker illustrates precisely why the Deep State elite, the WEF, George Soros, Bill Gates, et al will lose. That is, his comments are a microcosm of a much larger truth: the elite do not have the human terrain, just as the Soviets and Ceaușescu did not have their people’s hearts or minds. In fact, as this trucker says, the elite are even uniting former “adversaries,” the Quebecois and the English, to throw off the common oppressor. Quoting our Romanian, he says a fellow Quebecois trucker told him  I always said I am a Quebecois, but now I have become a Canadian. 

Uniting the French and the English in Canada, after hundreds of years of animosity… only the arrogant elite in their echo chambers could accomplish as much! Where do I send a thank you letter? Note that I also lived in Quebec, and when later living on the Ottawa side of the river, many nights my evening stroll was across the Alexandra bridge into Quebec and back. I also have swum many times at Meech Lake, Quebec, the site of the Meech Lake Accord that was supposed to end the French/English wars forever.  I know whereof I speak when it comes to reliving the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, where the French lost Quebec in 1759, but never gave up to this day. But not only are the elite, under their puppet Trudeau, unwittingly uniting French and English, but they are also even uniting Americans and Canadians. And worse, they are even losing their own foot soldiers: here is RCMP Corporal Bulford – who was directly on the detail personally protecting Trudeau  speaking live while resigning from his position in the Mounties due to elite over-reach. Is this Mountie alone? Hardly. The last living author of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, former premier Brian Peckford also begs to object to this egregious lockdown overreach. If you are a reader in the US, think perhaps of Thomas Jefferson actively speaking out about those actively corrupting the US Constitution that he, Jefferson, himself wrote.

Peckford explicitly did the same thing as RCMP Corporal Daniel Bulford, who notes that the Trudeau government has failed to demonstrably justify their infringements on our fundamental freedoms. Other rights that are being violated, per Mountie Bulford in the link above, are our rights to enter and remain in Canada, the right – as enumerated in Section 8 – against unreasonable search and seizure (Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly, are you listening?), and the right to life and liberty. Regarding personal medical information, Corporal Bulford notes that even if he needed, in his official capacity as a Mountie, to get medical information from a victim of a crime, he had to first get consent from a hospital, or get it from a difficult to obtain a judicial warrant. Not anymore. Under fasco-Marxist puppet Trudeau, all your rights, gentle serf, are gone. Finis. Kaput. Canadians also have a right against being arbitrarily detained, such as in the detention facility Bulford mentions, located outside of Saskatoon, SK, which was built  to detain Covid “untermenschen.” Bulford concludes that Trudeau’s government has engaged in a gigantic overreach into the fundamental freedoms of every citizen in the country, stating  I have drawn my line in the sand. No more silence and compliance from me.

Peckford, per the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, has actually filed a lawsuit in federal court over the lockdowns and vaccine requirements for air travel, which he says is in violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms  – which is the law of the land, and of which he, himself, was a co-author. Here is the official Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms for your reference. Don’t trust me… read it yourself. Then consider if perhaps Mr. Trudeau should, himself, be brought before a court and tried for violating the law of the land. Here is Peckford himself speaking, live. Listen and make your own judgment – outside of the fake news. 

The Law of Unexpected Consequences

You will see if you watch the video links in this paper, that there is an occasional US flag stitched together a Canadian flag, illustrating cross-national unity, as well as some Gadsden, Don’t Tread on Me flags – which were originally American, but now appropriated by Canadians. American readers may not know, but there can occasionally be an antipathy by Canadians against Americans, just like the French have against the English. I personally have close friends and some family members that had some serious dislike of Americans. However, as you see with Canadians appropriating Gadsden flags – which were originally used against their Loyalist forebears (and the motto of Ontario is, you might like to know, Loyal She Remains) there is a united front against the elite. French, English, men, women, Canadian, American, you and old, western Canadians (who don’t like the easterners!) driving thousands of miles east to unite with those from Toronto and Quebec… how could this massively broad unity come about? 

Moreover, you will notice a very large number of young people. How did the elite, who essentially own the educational system as part of their Frankfurt School – Gramscian takeover of the schools, nevertheless manage to lose the young? 

But in any event, we can thank the elite for uniting the French and English, the old and the young, those north of the 49th parallel and those south, uniting men and women… and much more! Nothing ever has worked to so unify Canada, and now much of the world… until this oppression. See the Quebec flag at left… or see the hundred of Quebec flags in the videos as you watch the links. 

How have the elite united us? Here’s how: There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them – George Orwell. 

Now, my proposal to you, gentle reader, is simple. Several videographers have documented, at length, what is going on but with very little comment – they just walk the street and let the images speak for themselves. Ottawalks does incredible work; another videographer is The 4K Guy with drone footage on YouTube (until its banned) here. Make your own decision by viewing right there on the street, without the elite telling you what to think. We are all pressed for time, so the advantage is that you can fast forward or choose sections to view. 

And it’s not just Ottawa. Here’s Toronto up in revolt; my brother-in-law, who was in the protest convoy from Hamilton to part way to Ottawa, said virtually every overpass was absolutely packed with supporters. And in the west, Alberta has also not only shut down with the US border at Coutts, now the Alberta cowboys (Alberta is the Texas of Canada) have joined the shutdown. ( I also lived in Alberta and BC for years, and consider myself more a westerner, truth be told.). Watch yourself – do you think the elite have the hearts and minds of the people? 

And this has also morphed into small towns, even among the very young. Here in Drayton Valley, Alberta (I am also a former resident of Edmonton, Alberta as well) young early teen kids have walked out of their school over mask mandates, despite their teacher threatening to dock their grades 25% if they dare take off their masks. You know… those self-same masks that are now not being used in totally unlocked countries like Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark the UK, Ireland, and others, because they simply don’t work, as the holes in the masks are around 1000 times larger than the virus. And while these agents of the deep state school teachers force lockdowns and masks, at the same time, perhaps the premier medical institution in the world, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Medicine, just came out and said that lockdowns should be rejected out of hand.  Their words, not mine – just read the link. 

With the New Media, You No Longer Need the Elite to Filter What You See

Truth is people are coming out in -20 C (-5 F) Ottawa temperatures, in numbers that are close to the masses on Parliament Hill on a pleasant 25C/80 F Canada Day on July 1st. Don’t believe me? See Ottawa native Ottawalks here walk the city, estimate your own numbers. I can only urge you to watch Ottawalks on YouTube, or 4K Guy (or others) to get a real, unfiltered view from the street level. Screengrabs are in this article to help; of course, as we are all time challenged!  

One more point you will see at this Ottawalks video here: This protest is good-natured and fun. It’s almost a jubilant street dance (see 35 min mark; but hey! If you don’t dance in the cold, you will freeze to death!). Or those that couldn’t dance tried a pickup hockey game right in front of Parliament Hill on Wellington Street, as here (or as shown below). Watch the kiddie playgrounds set up to help out the protesting young parents, also below). Ever seen a kiddie playground, fun dances, and people giving out free hot chocolate at Antifa rallies? Nah, didn’t think so, for they were violent and hate-filled. 


Mayor Durkin of Seattle justified their Antifa protest as a “summer of love” – but it ended up with multiple people murdered, and multiple buildings with windows smashed, just like what Hitler’s Antifa-like brownshirt street thugs did during 1938’s Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Windows) against the Jews. Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and Hitler’s Kristallnacht differed little. All broke windows; all destroyed buildings that housed people’s livelihoods; all burned or suppressed books (there were literal book burnings in Portland Antifa protests, which is, of course, is now scrubbed from YouTube, but as the internet is forever, here is a saved screen dump for your viewing unpleasure). Seattle’s, Portland’s and Minneapolis’  protests were not so much Woodstock as it was the later Altamont rock concert, where someone was stabbed to death, there was two hit and run deaths, and worse.

Woodstock Summer of Love Meets the Ottawa Truckers Winter of Love

In contrast, the Ottawa protest is more akin to a Woodstock Summer of Love Music Festival meets Ottawa Truckers Protest with Free Hugs and Hot Chocolate Festival. Starting after the one-hour mark at the Ottawalks link above, review it for a stand-up comedian on the protest main platform, a  person giving out free hot chocolate, a dance party at one main intersection, more kiddie play facilities, and a street hockey game. This Ottawa protest was supposed to be some hate-filled, racist rally? If Mr. Trudeau is looking for racism, perhaps he ought to look at his own past racism, as seen in his blackface pictures; see also here. These pictures were verified, and Trudeau has admitted he actually does not know how many more exist. Racism? Perhaps Mr. Trudeau can look in the mirror to find that. And I do hope you weren’t looking for free hot chocolate, free hugs, kiddie playgrounds, and jugglers at that Antifa thug-fest you watched. 

The Ottawa protest… the next best thing to Cirque du Soleil? Here’s a street juggler at the protest. Any street jugglers you saw in Portland, Seattle, or Minneapolis Antifa riots? 

But it is not just the truckers protesting. In addition to them, now the farmers have joined, as shown here (46 min mark). I walked by this intersection every day of my life for years to go to work, shop, and take my fiancé out for coffee or dessert. 

The next gambit from the fake news, at the 1:34 mark at the link above, was that Trudeau said the protesters were stealing food from the old food pantry that was two blocks from my old residence, when in fact, as you see for yourself, there were free food kiosks in a number of areas. See here for yet another free food depot, 13 min mark). Whom do they think they are kidding on the news? 


Or see here, with a makeshift restaurant built amidst the freedom convoy protest. And the fake news still wants to push their “food-stealing” narrative? Can’t they figure out some more novel lies? 


Yes… the protesters are supposed to be“haters” too. Such as this obviously hate-ridden woman at left, giving free hugs… or the kiddie throwing games for four-year-olds (See 1:36 min mark). 

There’s Mainstream Media Hate… and Then There is  Real Hate

But if you are looking for real haters, see where hate-filled leftists actually tried to run over and kill freedom protesters in Manitoba. National File wrote about the Winnipeg, Manitoba protest attempted murder: At least three people have been injured in Winnipeg, Canada after the driver of a white SUV appeared to deliberately slam into members of the nation’s massive Freedom Convoy, which is being led by truck drivers as they protest the far-left Trudeau regime’s continued COVID lockdowns, plus mask and jab mandates. Western Standard also wrote further on this here, or see the video here where some hate-filled leftist accelerates over a protester. 

Said one witness in Winnipeg: They call us racist, [they say] we’re violent and we’re breaking stuff…look at what’s going on. This is ridiculous! [The driver] clips three people with his vehicle and decides that he’s going to hit another guy full-on, lands on the guy’s foot, and rolls off.”

Of course, as you might imagine, if you try to now donate to the truckers at GiveSendGo.com, there has been a massive denial of service attack by rabid leftist hackers. 

Now, watch the kabuki theatre short clip found on Twitter, here, or as below, where a person at the Ottawa rally was supposedly hit by a car. Really? This is an assault? Truth is, I have been hit harder in junior high flag football than this likely Soros-paid actor was. And for you basketball players, you know exactly how this is done, the “flop and drop” to draw a charging foul, of which Dennis Rodman of the Bulls was an expert during the Michael Jordan days. And you will notice, as compared to the above episode, the driver – instead of accelerating like the Winnipeg leftist, immediately stopped and other protesters rushed to the person’s aid.  What is domestic terrorism, Mssr. Cheong, is your Trudeau government destroying the lives and careers of millions, including thousands of child suicides caused by your lockdowns. But, Mr. Cheong, don’t let your intellectual dishonesty bother you. 

The truth is, as you see below, the protesters have even stockpiled snow shovels to shovel the streets, out of civic duty (see here, 15 min mark)m and have food available, even for the homeless (17 min. mark). “Stealing from food pantries,” Mr.-In-Hiding-Trudeau said? My guess is that this was probably some George Soros paid anti-freedom types did that, too, for as you can see, there was and is zero need to steal food. 


But don’t worry about the pro-freedom Winnipeg protester, who was accelerated over by the leftist above. Now the police are calling it merely “a hit-and-run accident,” (apparently, hit and runs are now ok?) despite video footage showing the driver appearing to deliberately swerve to take out as many anti-lockdown demonstrators as possible, ultimately injuring four (it was a miracle no one was killed!). 

But if you want protester hate, remember the Seattle CHOP murders, as here: Latest Seattle CHOP shooting kills 16-year-old boy, critically wounds 14-year-old boy. Or remember the burnings in Portland, as here: It Took Six Months Of Rioting, Millions In Property Damage For Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler To Escalate Law Enforcement Efforts Against Antifa or recall the burning of a native Indian heritage building in Minneapolis. Yes, Antifa burned Native American heritage buildings during their riots, which the mainstream media “forgot” to report, but reported here in Native Business Magazine, or here, where Migizi, a Native American nonprofit in Minneapolis, and had raised more than $1 million to buy and renovate a place where Native American teenagers could learn about their culture, had their building burned down by Antifa types, also reported on here. 

The truth is that if the protesters are misogynists are racists, why is one of the leaders, Tamara Lich, both a woman and part Metis? Would mocking black people Mssr. “Blackface” Trudeau care to comment on this? Would Mr. Trudeau, once he removes the shoe polish from his face, care to comment to black Canadian freedom patriot Chris W. Morris, right after he apologizes to part Metis female Ms. Lich?  

The Elite Are Losing Control of the Narrative, Pure and Simple

The truth is, there are major cracks appearing in the fasco-Marxist façade. Saskatchewan Premier Moe is one example, where he is planning on ending all lockdowns in his province – to join Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, UK, and Ireland which have already done the same. 

The truth is, the lockdown types do not have the human terrain. In fact, when the vile Ottawa mayor tried to get tow truck companies to tow the protesters’ trucks, they refused, claiming they “had Covid.” See also Ottawa Mayor Tries to Tow Truckers, Tow Truckers Claim They Have Covid! or stories here, here or here. 

In response to this, all Blackface Trudeau has is the usual cliches: “Russia did it”; or the left trots out their usual gambits, such as Confederate flag in Majors Hill Park that was clearly carried by a completely masked Antifa style leftist, and which occurred in the very far reaches of Majors Hill Park, where there few protesters. Ditto with the fake Nazi flag incident. There was reportedly one assault, but having watched the interviewee, my thoughts are that this person was either a shill paid to lie, or else perhaps some street thugs took advantage in an area that was far out of the way of the main protest. Either way, the attempt to smear the protesters is just the “same ol’ same ol’” puerile gambit that is trotted out. It’s always “Russia,’ or “They are haters.” What’s the next cliché? “23 Skidoo” from the Roaring 20s? Any other hackneyed cliches they can bring in from the pasture? And, in something that is a reverse mirror image of the statesmanship of a Churchill, Trudeau supposedly got Covid and was suddenly “unavailable” to talk to the people he is supposed to serve. Truth is, Trudeau – along with his Tripartite pact crony Biden is a deer in the truckers headlights who doesn’t even have the dignity to talk to the people who employ him.  

The WEF, with every antic (the latest report is they will start arresting people providing fuel and food to anyone protesting), is uniting the people. We have nothing left to lose, and as Gerald Celente says, when people lose everything, they lose it. 

We’re going to win this battle, with our calling card of human dignity and joy, which these soul-less cyborgs pretending to be human have no conception of, and these types have no contingency plan to fight joy, freedom, and life. In fact, these trans-humanists don’t even know what those words are. The only example you need of why they will lose is to look at their soul-less faces… for as Abraham Lincoln once said, after 40 years old, every man is responsible for his own face. You and I might age, but it will not be with that amoral, vacant, ghoulish look the elite have. Or as another wag once put it, referencing that empty misanthropic stare, his punishment is his face. The next stop for the elite, given that they don’t have the human terrain – which terrain is you and me, dear reader – will be the helicopter episode below. If you need an example of how they are losing, just a day after GoFundMe shut off the truckers’ funds, and attempted to redirect them, its replacement GiveSendGo already had (!) $5 million dollars of the $10 million the moral midgets at GoFundMe had…ummm…. “appropriated” and were likely going to redirect to a (can you say “George Soros approved?) fake charity.  

I hope Mssrs. Gates. Soros, Schwab, Biden keep their evacuation helicopters warmed up. If the Canadian truckers get any further out of hand, they just may need them.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight.

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection.

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…
