Ottawa police have threatened to arrest anyone providing the Freedom Convoy with gas and diesel cans after they initially blocked trucks with fuel tanks coming to the aid of the protesters.
Authorities announced that anyone providing “material support” to the demonstrators would be subject to arrest from midnight last night.
Asked whether “material support” included necessities like food and water, a police spokesperson told Fox News that the announcement “relates to hazardous materials that represent a public safety or fire hazard.”
Videos soon emerged of people being arrested and police seizing fuel from protesters.

The truckers have been 100% peaceful. So Trudeau’s feds are working around the clock to manufacture an incident to justify a violent state response. pic.twitter.com/lNFPGaFtv7

As we highlighted last week, authorities have still refused to rule out using the military against the protesters.
The truckers say they won’t leave until vaccine mandates that dictate truckers returning to Canada from the U.S. quarantine once they arrive at home have been lifted.
Meanwhile, the same leftists who for months have vowed to make life unlivable for the unvaccinated are now crying over horns being honked.
