I really love the narrative of how “the truckers shut down the US-Canada border.”
No, you lying bastards. The truckers didn’t do it. The border has been closed for two years. I haven’t been back to Canada in two years because the border is closed to me, a citizen. Last summer, my sister, who got “fully vaccinated” only to be able to travel in peace, spent weeks unable to cross that border back into the country of which she’s a citizen. Citizens can’t freely travel within Canada, either. Even the “fully vaccinated.” Traveling from Quebec to Nova Scotia in August, for example, required filling out a bunch of complicated and constantly changing forms. Again, this was back in August. It wasn’t the truckers doing that.
For two years people haven’t been able freely to move within, out of or into the country of their citizenship. This is utterly egregious. And it wasn’t caused by truckers.
