Surete du Quebec (Quebec’s provincial police) has moved in to shut down the ongoing carbon tax protest along the Ontario/Quebec border.

Day 9: Quebec police move in to shut down carbon tax protest

Footage taken by Wayne Harris and acquired by Dacey Media shows a large police presence along Highway 401/A-20, with protesters on the scene saying police have given them a deadline to leave the area or face fines and/or arrest.

According to Dacey Media, police moved in while protesters were out getting breakfast at a nearby rest stop, and the deadline is now 10:00 a.m. Additionally, some protesters say that the order to clear the protest may have come from the Quebec Minister of Transportation.

It should also be noted that the carbon tax protest has been entirely peaceful, that there have been no incidents, and that protesters are not obstructing traffic along the main highway.

This marks Day 9 of the ongoing nationwide protest against the Trudeau government’s carbon tax, which 70% of Canadians oppose, along with seven Premiers, 5 of whom want to hold an emergency meeting to discuss alternatives.

Despite this hiccup, protests are expected to continue throughout the week and into the weekend.

As reported by TCS’s Alexa Posa, a massive ‘Axe the Tax’ slow roll is being organized and staged by Alberta4Liberty on Saturday, April 13.

This will be followed by a “Save Canada from Non-Governing NGO’s” rally, which will take place at the south bandshell stage at 1 p.m., followed by a bridge march. Topics being protested include the WHO pandemic treaty, digital IDs, MAID, and so on.
