1. Well that's a good perspective.  What about if somebody on here - a board cohort - tells me a falsehood ?

99% chance that it came from CNN/CBC or it's a CNN/CBC-approved falsehood, so it's all good. 

You might even click the 'like' button on it.

Everything he does is being carefully calculated and strategized to manipulate the public.  He's officially isolating for at least 2 reasons.  1) To garner sympathy from gullible Canadians, and 2), to irritate the convoy and those who support it.  

Trudeau makes some bombastic comments about the trucker convoy yesterday and today he goes into hiding.  It's trolling 101.  They want to whip up anger among the truckers, hoping that this produces incidents of violence so they can shut them down.  I wouldn't be surprised to hear that they've got the army on standby.

Guy needs to give his head a shake. Apparently ol Margie didn't give him enough whoopins as a Child. Too busy out with Fidel perhaps

The first convoy departed Prince Rupert, B.C. on Jan. 22 and arrived at a truck stop at Twin City Crossroads on West Arthur Street at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, with plans to depart the city on Thursday morning. About 113 transports and 276 other vehicles crossed the Ontario border as part of the convoy, according to the Ontario Provincial Police. Hundreds of supporters were on hand to greet the convoy.

If one truck goes 8 km/h over the speed limit they'll all be branded as terrorists.

Do you think that getting more supporters is a valid way to assess the value of a message?

Kanye West, Justin Trudeau and The Toronto Maple Leafs are also supported by lots of people... 😃

JRE > CNN

Joe is authentic af

CNN is fake af

Joe has substantive conversations with all kinds of interesting people

CNN does outrage porn for the far left

I dont see it as helping. They are blocking ordinary people from going to the overpass and doing things like waving flags in support to cheer them on, as they drive by here tonight around 5 pm.

Uh... no.  680 news reported people on every overpass between London and Milton, so ... the police are helping.  And by the declaration of convoyers many police support them.

113 trucks is a LOT of trucks.  Impressive.  What's more is that they should each get about $40,000 if the $4.5M that Ms. Tamara Lich collected is distributed fairly.  Will that cover expenses ?  Likely pay off some of the truck.

Again, it's not distributed.

It is for expenses incurred for being in the convoy - gas, food, lodging.  Not all need lodging, some have sleeper cabs, many people have offered places to stay along the way, including one motel I know of that put up the convoy for the night for free.  People have been providing a lot of food - meeting them on the highway and distributing bag meals or setting up dinner stations at the end of the day's run.

Leftover money will be donated to Veteran's groups.

The 276 other vehicles are also part of the convoy, nice try but your bias is showing.  And hundreds more truckers(in various vehicles) are also coming up from the Eastern provinces and the US.

I dont know about that. Here in my town the message from police is clear. Stay away. The roads are being closed and barricades going up. Only emergency vehicles will be allowed through. Nearby bus routes are being closed.

Its not clear if pedestrians will be allowed. However its not a pedestrian area. There are no sidewalks. Hopefully they will let people go there if they want, we’ll see!

Belleville overpasses are full of supporters... to the point where it's becoming unsafe...

Misinformation about the truck convoy.

https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-coronavirus-canada-idUSL1N2U72IN?fbclid=IwAR0A9SX0uCvCNUPoctbI26twqNEhVAuDbrmbdXMKqazMzZ3r9FV1JCF5RTE

“I don't think anyone really grasps how big this is,” said one caption on Facebook (here). “From every corner of the country. Rolling into Ottawa and staying put until action is taken.”

Others captioned the photo “freedom convoy” (here , here , here and here).E

 

However, the picture has nothing to do with the protest convoy. Reuters traced it back to July 2019, where it was shared online in relation to a truck show in Alberta (here).

And where did they get this photo? 

In a social media message to Reuters, the Blackjacks Roadhouse & Games Room said: “We can confirm that we own the photo used in both the links you provided.

“This photo was taken at Blackjacks Roadhouse & Games Room in Nisku, Alberta on July 6th, 2019 during the Pro-Trucker Magazine Big Rig Show & Shine.”

The spokesperson added that the photo had been used in the social media posts about the convoy without permission.

So one guys photo means that the countless hours of video evidence taken on the convoy of large crowds is "disinformation". 

No wonder only a small fridge minority trusts the press anymore

O'Toole says the country is divided. I'd say the country is united over pushing back against government overreach. 

 

And some other nummie in the press conference probably from CBC tried smearing the group with his usual pathetic nonsense of "racism and anti semitism". I'm sure these "extremists" are liberal plants

Yep. That's exactly what they said in the news bulletin about shutting down all the roads leading to our one overpass. It is for our own safety.

You're really good at pointing fingers aren't you?

Most just sick of seeing "professional" news stations smear honest working people for disagreeing with them. Especially one my tax dollars fund

I didn't say that; I merely pointed out that not everything put out by convoy supporters is necessarily true.
