Exasperated Canadians Speak
From Kelowna to Montreal: we are done.
Here are two more brief interviews that document a common theme. Both were recorded on the first weekend of the Ottawa protest. Above, a member of the Kelowna, British Columbia fire department tells Laura Lynn Tyler Thompson that vaccine coercion is the reason he drove 4,000 kilometers (2,500 miles) across Canada to take part:
We’re tearing ourselves apart here, guys. Brothers and sisters, we need to come together. Enough is enough.
He says that getting a COVID vaccine is a personal choice, and that those who decline to do so deserve the support of their fellow firefighters:
We’ve pulled together for two years now, getting though this. And now our governments are throwing us under the bus. And enough is enough. I am sick and tired of it.
In this second video, a francophone protester from Montreal explains his support for the truckers. His mostly-in-French remarks can be summarized as ‘Canadians need to unite.’
At the beginning of the video he says in English: “Enough is enough. We want freedom, for real.”
He also finishes in English: “Enough is enough. We are done.”
