Trudeau planned January 6-like framing of Freedom Convoy protesters
None of this was reported by the CBC.

Documents obtained by Blacklock’s Reporter indicate that on the first day of the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa, Public Safety Canada issued a false internal bulletin stating that the protesters entered federal office buildings, caused damage, and that the buildings required a lockdown.

Blacklock’s Reporter discovered the document from the department of Public Safety through an Access to Information request.

“We have received confirmation that protesters have started to enter office buildings in the Ottawa downtown core and are allegedly causing damage,” the bulletin falsely stated. 

“As a result, Minto Place is going into weekend lockdown mode (all entrance doors will be locked) effective immediately.”

No protesters entered federal government buildings during the protest.

This is yet more evidence the Trudeau Liberals intentionally framed the protesters as evil, and planned to do so before they even arrived.

In November, explosive texts between staffers at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and Public Safety also revealed the Trudeau Liberals purposely framed the Ottawa protesters as “extreme,” and just like the January 6 event in America. (The January 6, 2021 Capitol storming event in America has since been shown to have been at least partially staged.)

On January 24, 2022, just days before the truckers arrived in Ottawa, Mary-Liz Power, working for the PMO, texted Alexander Cohen from Public Safety.

“I just had a chat with Alex from PS who had an interesting idea,” Power’s text shows. Power copied and pasted to Cohen what she said to the PMO on his and her behalf. 

“As you saw in the pod goals chat, the truckers convoy and some of their more extreme comments (IE calling for J6 style insurrection) are getting more coverage in the media.”

“I think there could be an opportunity to get in on this growing narrative of the truckers …”

“My thoughts on the framing here would be similar to what the PM/Blair said last year when Jan 6th occurred …” Power said. 

Power further indicated that Trudeau liked the idea of disparaging the protesters with negative framing.

“Got quick responses. People are into it,” she wrote.

“Let me know if your boss is too. Happy to help however I can!” 

Cohen responded positively to the suggestion, but said his boss (Minister Marco Mendicino) wanted the “crazy” protesters to stay.

“My boss is supportive, but wants to wait a day or two. There’s a danger that if we come down too hard, they might push out the crazies.”

Additionally, the texts reveal the PMO and Public Safety leveraged mainstream media to push a negative portrayal of the protesters — and knew the stories were coming before they went to print.

“Apparently Global and others are working on stories. Let’s see how those land…”

The next day, former Global News reporter Rachel Gilmore wrote an article titled “Far-right groups hope trucker protest will be Canada’s ‘January 6th.’”
