Even as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the ongoing truckers’ strike in Ottawa was “now becoming illegal”, law enforcement authorities have not ruled out any option including calling in the armed forces.

Truckers continued to lay siege to Canada’s capital on Wednesday and showed no signs of leaving. In a statement, organisers of the Freedom Convoy 2022 said they “plan to remain in Ottawa ‘for as long as it takes’ for governments across Canada to end all mandates associated with Covid 19”.

However, Trudeau once again launched an attack on the protesters, as he told the House of Commons in French that his government was working with law enforcement agencies to “ensure that this protest, which is now becoming illegal, does come to an end”, according to the outlet Global News.
