Elon Musk Supports Truckers’ Protest in Ottawa
Elon Musk has some definite ideas about the restrictions related to COVID-19. Tesla’s big boss, Elon Musk, has just entered the debate on the vaccination of truckers in Canada.
Remember that truckers are required to be properly vaccinated to return to Canada after a stay in the United States. It is the same for truckers on the other side of the border.
In a series of tweets posted on Twitter, first on January 27 when the “Freedom Convoy” was headed to Ottawa, but especially on Sunday, the day after the protests began, Musk expressed his admiration and support for the protesters.
Reacting to a video that showed the siege of Parliament Hill and many of the city’s thoroughfares, he wrote, “It would appear that the so-called ‘minority fringe’ is actually the government.”

And he directly attacked Justin Trudeau and his administration: “If the government had the mandate of the people, we would see a major counter-protest. There isn’t one, so the government doesn’t have that mandate.”
The TeslaMusk boss praised the commitment of those braving the cold Canadian winter to protest.
It’s worth noting that the protesters have now left the nation’s capital, but those who remain – truckers and others opposed to the restrictions – aren’t planning to lift the siege any time soon, with many saying they’re simply waiting for Justin Trudeau to resign and lift all measures.
Justin Trudeau told the media that he had no intention of meeting with the protesters to hear their grievances. He called on them to denounce the hateful symbols that have been seen in recent days, such as the objects placed on the Terry Fox statue or the vehicles parked on the National War Memorial.
“Everyone is grumpy, everyone is tired of this pandemic, everyone is exhausted, everyone wants it to end… but the vast majority of Canadians know that grumbling is not the way to end this pandemic: it’s by getting vaccinated,” he said.
