Police crackdowns against “Freedom Convoy” protests began on Saturday, with authorities working to clear anti-COVID-mandate demonstrators in Canada and France.
The enforcement in Canada focused on the Ambassador Bridge, which connects the city of Windsor, Ontario to Detroit. The bridge was one of the locations focused on by Canadian truckers, who formed a blockade preventing travel across the major economic thoroughfare.
On Saturday morning, reporter Sean O’Shea shared an on-the-ground look at the situation in Windsor on Twitter. At one point, he noted the presence of both “tactical teams” and “snipers on the roof.”
