The front line of the truckers convoy have been receiving information and intelligence from sources within and outside of police organization, and called this meeting as a preemptive measure to help mitigate any unnecessary violence that could potentially occur. Led by Tom Marazzo, who breaks down some of the rumours that have been flying around regarding increased police presence, including riot police and processing centres being set up around Ottawa. He stresses a couple of times that if police do come in and start arresting people, the truckers and protestors will remain peaceful and non confrontational.
They Remain “Cautiously Optimistic”
Tom goes on to mention that it was told to them that when social media and communications go down, that is when police will come in and start arresting. Do police have the power to cut the internet and cell service to a designated geographical area?
They hope this will not occurs but are airing more on the cautionary side. Watch the whole conference below.
