Help Canadian truckers at the border: LifeFunder.com
MILK RIVER, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) — On the evening of Friday, February 4, a misleading public post was made on the Coutts Facebook group (which has 80k followers) that said that the Coutts, Alberta border truckers were leaving Coutts and heading to Edmonton, that deals had been made with Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs), and that all the mandates would be dropped by Monday (today).
When I tried to get the group admin to take the post down, he told me that he was one of the truckers who left Coutts on Thursday and drove to central Alberta to meet with 3 MLAs. He said that they had “made a deal,” and he was now on his way back to Coutts to tell the other guys to pack up. I knew that he was acting on his own because I had spoken to the organizers and there were no MLA meetings. I challenged him, but he refused to take down his post or to edit it because, he said, it was the truth. It is not the truth because MLAs can’t make deals. I knew then that the Facebook group was completely compromised since he has full control over what is posted in it.
When I called the organizers afterwards, they said that these 3 to 5 truckers had acted without the group’s consensus and that they were no longer welcome in Coutts. Therefore, they had left.
I spent the weekend in Milk River having meetings with all the border protest coordinators on the ground. On Sunday morning, I hastily threw up a new FB page called Official Coutts/Milk River Border Protest but didn’t make any posts because I got called away from my phone. I came back a few hours to notice that a trucker had posted a similar message on my new group page, the same misleading message as Friday’s: the truckers at Coutts were leaving for Edmonton and deals had been made for Monday.
I knew that I had to track down this lead. I called him, and he told me that there was a tip from a government employee that a group of Antifa members were nearby and would hit early Monday morning. I told him that he needed to call the RCMP. He was mumbling in response, but it sounded like he was saying that the tip came from inside the RCMP.
He said I could meet him. I finished my meetings at Milk River Protest and met him in town, only to find myself in a meeting with an MLA and 4 other truckers. It became clear to me that they were trying to use me to turn the Coutts truckers.
I did not tell them that in my twenties, I had worked in the government, that I was an investigator for serious child abuse (predominantly sex crimes), and that I have crisis negotiation training from the RCMP. Nor did I tell them that I am a trained relationship counsellor, and I’m very good at reading people. I went in and played dumb. They were so busy telling me that they could not get arrested with the Coutts truckers that they failed to notice how I was reading them through what they weren’t saying.
Since launching our petition in support of the Freedom Convoy truckers less than one week ago, we've managed to obtain more than 65,000 signatures from freedom-loving people in every corner of the world!
This is an excellent show of support for the international cause of freedom from intrusive medical mandates, but Canada's truckers still find themselves a foremost target of their government, at both the federal and, now, local levels.
In fact, Mayor Jim Watson has even instituted an entirely unnecessary and politically-motivated "state of emergency" in Ottawa simply due to the truckers' presence there.
So if you haven't already, please SIGN this important petition, which calls on Prime Minister Trudeau and his pro-mandate allies to acknowledge the medical autonomy of working people by reversing course in the federal strategy to combat Covid.

Thank you for being a voice for freedom and medical autonomy!
Canadian truckers are fighting back against Justin Trudeau's Covid overreach and medical tyranny, and are giving people across the country -- and the world -- a new voice for freedom!
These truckers, like millions of other Canadians, have been subjected to unprecedented medical coercion, manipulation, and intimidation on behalf of Trudeau's liberal government, and, with their livelihoods on the line, they have risen to meet the moment by bringing their cause directly to Ottawa in the form of a massive Freedom Convoy!
But, unsurprisingly, they are still being met with resistance by extreme politicians who wish to exercise complete control over these truckers' -- and all Canadians' -- medical autonomy, which is why we're asking you to show your support for these brave, hardworking men and women by adding your name and your voice to their cause.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to back off these truckers, change course in his approach to Covid, and support the medical autonomy of the truckers and all working Canadians going forward.
Like millions of Canadian workers across the country, truckers are being required by Justin Trudeau's Liberal government to get the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, or face a 14-day quarantine period if and when they cross the border into the United States to make their deliveries.
These truckers were categorized as "essential workers" (which they most certainly are) during the worst days of the Covid crisis, when lockdowns were the universal norm and millions of people were forced out of their jobs and offices. Even so, they remained on the job through it all, ensuring that essentials were available to people in every corner of the country, even when some businesses were shut down and strict rules were in place that made something as simple as grocery shopping a challenge for millions.
In fact, Prime Minister Trudeau went out of his way to compliment these men and women back in March of 2020, tweeting the following:
While many of us are working from home, there are others who aren’t able to do that - like the truck drivers who are working day and night to make sure our shelves are stocked. So when you can, please #ThankATrucker for everything they’re doing and help them however you can.
In fact, But just yesterday, Trudeau went on the record at a press conference labeling these truckers everything from "racists" to "Nazis" in a simply stunning reversal from his earlier comments.
So why the sudden change in attitude from the Prime Minister?
Because, as it turns out, these truckers are refusing to sit idly by while their rights -- and the rights of millions of working Canadians -- remain under attack like never before, and they are standing up to Trudeau and challenging his government's radical medical tyranny head-on.
With their livelihoods on the line, these truckers decided it was time to take action.
This past weekend, the #FreedomConvoy led a 50-mile-long caravan of what's estimated to be thousands of truckers from across Canada to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where they staged a monumental demonstration to protest Trudeau's vaccination mandate.
In addition, truckers from across the United States (who are similarly fighting to preserve their own medical freedoms against a power-hungry federal government) also joined the Freedom Convoy to stand in solidarity with their neighbors to the north.
This massive, now-international movement to restore the individual rights of these truckers and all working people after nearly two years' worth of lockdowns, mandates, and vast government overreach and infringement is taking Ottawa -- and all of Canada -- by storm.
Look no further than the trucker's GoFundMe, which has raised $10 million in support of their cause -- more than what was raised by either of Canada's two major political parties during the last financial quarter of 2021.
The grassroots are clearly on their side (and the side of freedom), but even so, Trudeau remains unmoved...
He has dismissed the truckers and their supporters as a "small fringe," and has even accused the organizers of the Freedom Convoy and its participants of holding "unacceptable views."
But Justin Trudeau is wrong: These hardworking men and women are not racists or Nazis, and they are certainly not a fringe group -- they are patriotic, freedom-loving Canadians who refuse to stand down when being faced with egregious medical tyranny on the federal government's part, and who are using their constitutional right(s) to freedom of speech and expression to be a unified voice for millions of others faced with similar medical mandates.
And they need our support.
So please, take a few minutes now to SIGN and SHARE this important petition asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reverse course by supporting these truckers (and all working Canadians) by abandoning intrusive, unconstitutional vaccination mandates for working people going forward.
This petition will be delivered, in person, to both Prime Minister Trudeau and the leaders of the Freedom Convoy.
Let's show Justin Trudeau, once and for all, that the desire to live and work freely is not just limited to a "small fringe," but rather the inherent right of ALL Canadians and their millions of backers from across the globe -- including YOU!

They told me over and over that the lanes at the border protest were closed and that the Coutts truckers were lying to me. I asked if they had proof, and they got angry at me. They told me that I didn’t need proof because it was their word. I told them that I needed to see evidence or else I couldn’t trust what they were saying. The MLA then jumped up, in a raised voice accused me of “ruining everything,” and stormed out of the restaurant in front of a dozen patrons. All the truckers there got up and angrily left, telling me that I ruined their deal. A friend of mine was at the restaurant, 3 tables over, and watched the entire thing: he was shocked at how loud and angry the voices directed at me were.
As it turns out, Shane Getson, MLA for Lac Ste. Anne-Parkland, does not do well in confrontation. He is probably under a lot of pressure from his boss Alberta Premier Jason Kenney to make the Border Protest go away. He and the other 3 MLAs from the central Alberta area who met with these truckers, obviously reached out to them and tried to cut them a deal. The truckers were scared of the repercussions, but I think the MLAs were playing on their fear and threatening them with something. After they left me at the restaurant, I called the leader at Coutts and asked him to send me a real-time video of the lanes so that I could confirm that they were open. He did, and the video contradicted the story the lanes were still closed and that’s why deals had to be made immediately. (video below)
I don’t think the truckers who made the deals are bad guys; I know politics quite well, and I also know that the typical MLA will throw their weight around and lie without remorse. I have no ill will towards the truckers who met with them, the ones who left Coutts to make the deals with politicians. I think they are good, kind men who care about their families and their communities. I also think they were beyond stressed out, and they just got scared. When emotions are high, bad decisions are made. In fact, politicians and police officers count on it. I wish the truckers all the best. But the MLAs who were offering deals, making threats, and scaring these truckers out of their minds? Not so much.
