Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blames Americans for the civil unrest causing gridlock along the U.S.-Canada border and in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa.
Trudeau on Friday said that Americans were funding the “Freedom Convoy” protesters who have demonstrated against vaccine mandates and other COVID-19 restrictions in Ottawa for over two weeks. Other protesters have blocked off crossings along the U.S.-Canada border, including the Ambassador Bridge connecting Detroit to Canada.
“This morning, I had a direct call with President Biden to talk about our shared challenges at the border,” Trudeau said, according to Just The News. “I updated him on the situation, particularly in Windsor.”
