The protests have taken a turn in Ottawa as the leaders and organizers are arrested. Freedom convoy organizers Chris Barber, Tamara Lich, and Patrick King have been taken into custody over the last 48 hours without incident. As you can tell in the video coverage they were peaceful and Cooperative as they have been urging others to be.
Although the protests have been peaceful in nature, Canadian Premiere Justin Trudeau has recently invoked the emergency act in an unprecedented power grab.

Others are urged to maintain the peaceful protests as organizers fall back to regroup and retain support from their legal counsel. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to work with correspondents in the field.
