Ottawa police chief admits no weapons charges against Freedom Convoy

Despite reports from legacy media, the Ottawa interim police chief reluctantly admitted that zero weapons charges had resulted from the Freedom Convoy protests.  

At today’s Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security meeting, titled Occupation of Ottawa and Federal Government’s response to Convoy Blockades, conservative MP Dane Lloyd questioned interim officer Steve Bell if any loaded weapons were found.  

Bell ducked and dodged until finally pressed a third time.  

“It’s a clear question, interim chief, like, were weapons found? Were loaded firearms found? Yes, or no?”  

After a long silence, Bell concedes.  

“So . . . in relation to – no, not to relating to any charges to this point.” 

This contradicts Toronto Star reporter Justin Ling’s claim that loaded weapons were found. 

On February 19, Ling tweeted, “A source tells me officers found “a few shotguns” while clearing the trucks. Carrying a shotgun in your truck is perfectly legal: But the source says they were loaded. That’s not legal.” 

But Lloyd blew up this narrative today.  

“Ottawa interim chief Bell confirms at #SECU that no firearms were found during the clearing of the Convoy protests. Despite claims by Toronto Star and Liberal Ministers.” 

First, Ling backtracked, suggesting he never said anything wrong. But Lloyd pressed on:  

This embarrassment comes after multiple fake news stories on the Freedom Convoy protests have been exposed, but not before leftist politicians and state-funded media alike pushed them. 

1. Arson Gate – Police admitted the claims that protestors tried to start a fire were false, but only after countless Liberals and NDP members pushed the fake narrative to justify the use of the Emergencies Act. 

2. Foreign Funding – CBC retracted a false story about the source of the donations to the Freedom Convoy being heavily foreign-funded. It wasn’t.  

3. Terrorist Financers – Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland suggested the donators to the convoy were terrorist financers despite FINTRAC claiming there was no violent threat

4. Hateful Flags – There’s growing suspicion of the Nazi and confederate flags being staged, as reported by Rebel.  

If there are any lessons to this charade of lies and propaganda, it’s that independent media is only going to get more popular.
