HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (LifeSiteNews) —Hundreds of vehicles made a “slow roll” through Nova Scotia to protest COVID restrictions over the weekend.
The protest took place despite the Canadian province expanding its attack on the right to peacefully demonstrate in the streets.
The Government of Nova Scotia expanded its prohibition on blocking or disrupting traffic from certain highways to all the roads in the province on Friday. Despite the unconstitutional order, LifeSiteNews’ Celeste McGovern reported that “The ban didn’t deter anyone,” as hundreds of vehicles made a “slow roll” through the province and into its capital Halifax with no interference by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
“The Province issued a directive under the Emergency Management Act today, February 4, prohibiting protesters from blockading or disrupting traffic on any road, street or highway in Nova Scotia,” reads the Nova Scotia government website.
“The new directive follows a similar one issued January 28 banning protesters from organizing a blockade of Highway 104i at the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border in support of the 2022 Freedom Convoy and the Atlantic Hold the Line event,” the press release states.
“Individuals and corporations could be fined for failing to comply with the directive. The directive will remain in place for the duration of the provincial state of emergency.”
According to the order, private citizens can be fined up to $10,000 for violating the directive, while businesses can be hit with fines up to $100,000.
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!

Nevertheless, McGovern reported that the order went unenforced by police over the weekend as hundreds of vehicles headed to the province’s capital to protest the COVID regime.
“It was huge,” she said.
“In Windsor in the Annapolis Valley there were more than 150 cars. We drove 50 kilometers to Halifax, and more were feeding in from everywhere. I don’t know how many were in the ‘slow roll’ through downtown in the end because I was in the middle of it. But it was big,” McGovern continued.
“A friendly RCMP lady had instructed us to move from where we were gathering in a parking lot and told us to line up along the road. She said the mayor of Windsor didn’t want us there. I asked about the ban on the roads, and she said, ‘Well, I’m the one telling you to go there, and I’m the one who hands out the tickets. So don’t worry about it. We’re keeping this positive.’ She was smiling. It was a great day.”
When the first version of the order was announced in late January to stifle support for the “Freedom Convoy 2022” protest in Ottawa, many took to social media to accuse Nova Scotia of dictatorial action.
“This has truly crossed a line: Nova Scotia bans gatherings along highway in support of trucker freedom convoy,” posted famed Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson on January 29.
“What the hell are you thinking [Nova Scotia premier] @TimHoustonNS? How dare you make it illegal for Canadians to express their political opinions? Your actions have crossed the line into outright political illegitimacy. Beware.”

In a press release regarding the Freedom Convoy overall, the legal group Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms affirmed, “The right to peacefully protest is a fundamental right protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Governments across Canada have ignored Canadians and bypassed their elected representatives in the passage of health and vaccination mandates which strip people of their jobs and civil liberties.”
“People are tired of being ignored by the indifferent elite. The lack of meaningful democracy means citizens have no voice regarding health mandates. They have a right to peacefully protest and have their voices heard,” added Jay Cameron, Justice Centre Litigation Director.
