An unsanctioned truck rally including over 500 trucks in Barrie Ontario was held on Saturday night, resulting in more than 20 charges — and at least one “F Trudeau” chant.
Police estimated more than 700 people attended the rally, which was held in the Bayview Malls parking lot.
Video footage from one of the attendees shows hundreds of youth at night chanting “F*%# Trudeau, F*%# Trudeau!.”
More than three police agencies were “well prepared” for the event, as it had been advertised on social media. The South Simcoe Police, Barrie Police Traffic Unit, and the Ontario Provincial Police were all involved.
More than 20 highway traffic act charges were laid, and one truck was seized after the driver was found stunt-driving.
“The event was advertised on social media for another location and when it was not available, the attendees assembled elsewhere,” a Barrie police spokesperson told Simcoe.com.
“This is nothing more than a disrespectful display of a lack of respect for private property.”
Barrie is not the first city in Ontario to have viral videos emerge with citizens proudly expressing their united hatred towards Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Earlier this year, while on a caucus retreat in Hamilton, Ontario, police created a decoy for Trudeau to leave a restaurant without so many protesters there to confront him.
A couple weeks prior to that, a viral video on social media showed a crowd of Canadians in Windsor letting Trudeau know what they think of him, as his motorcade slowly drove by.
In the video, Trudeau’s motorcade can be seen driving through a crowd of people protesting his appearance in their city.
“Last night, Trudeau’s motorcade was met by a wall of angry protesters in Windsor, Ontario,” tweeted The Counter Signal’s founder Keean Bexte.
“Locals calling on the beleaguered Prime Minister to resign.”
