Police are in the midst of an operation to clear out the so-called “Freedom Convoy” that has been encamped for 22 days in the nation’s capital, with more than 100 individuals arrested so far, some convoy organizers issuing calls for participants to retreat, and snow barricades being built up on the streets.
The operation by law enforcement and tactical teams from multiple jurisdictions has been largely peaceful though police are equipped with tear gas and a range of other law enforcement tools in their bid to remove the encampment. Police say more than 100 people are now in custody, including Pat King, a prominent organizer with the demonstrations.
