A Canadian government official on Sunday powerfully pointed out how truckers’ bullying, destructive weekslong shutdown against COVID-19 vaccines and other health measures does not constitute a fight for freedom.

“A blockade is not freedom, it blocks the liberty of all,” tweeted Bob Rae, Canada’s representative to the United Nations.

“A demand to overthrow a government is not a dialogue. The expression of hatred is not a difference of opinion,” Rae added. And in a declaration just as dead-on south of the border, he noted: “A lie is not the truth.”

A truck is not a speech. A horn is not a voice. An occupation is not a protest. A blockade is not freedom, it blocks the liberty of all. A demand to overthrow a government is not a dialogue. The expression of hatred is not a difference of opinion. A lie is not the truth.
