BREAKING: Elon Musk supports trucker convoy

On Thursday, American billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted out his support of Canadian truckers heading to Ottawa to fight for their rights and freedoms.

“Canadian truckers rule,” Musk tweeted, never being one to mince words.

Earlier in the day, he tweeted, “Je m’aple syrup,” which many thought could be a tacit, although comical, approval of the movement developing, which is now well known and being discussed globally.

Musk’s comments come the same day several developments occurred, including the sudden departure of PM Justin Trudeau, who is now presumably in hiding out of fear from facing everyday truckers who won’t tolerate his mandate.

He says it’s because he was exposed to COVID… even though he’s triple vaccinated, his test came back negative, and Ontario’s official policy is that fully vaccinated people don’t have to quarantine if they’ve been in contact with someone who has COVID. But, unfortunately, the facts don’t add up.

Indeed, Trudeau’s departure comes only a day after he denounced the truck convoy, calling those participating a “small, fringe minority” and asserting that only by complying with the federal vaccine mandate will Canadians ever see the return of their freedoms.

As Trudeau said during a press conference, “The small, fringe minority of people are on their way to Ottawa, who are holding unacceptable views that they’re expressing, do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other, who know that following the science, and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values, as a country.”

Additionally, today, we learned that Ontario police, at the behest of the Ministry of Transportation, is closing parts of Highway 17, truckers’ most direct route to Ottawa.

As reported by The Counter Signal, “To avoid utilizing Highway 17, truckers will now likely take Highway 11, adding hours to their trip and skipping both Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, and North Bay, where Canadians are preparing lodging and warm welcomes for the road-warn freedom fighters.”

With the press, the government, and even the roads against them, truckers are pressing on. Nothing can stop the convoy, and Canadians, as well as freedom lovers around the world, are standing with them. Canadians have had enough.
