Beginning February 20th, RWN will offer a new feature, “RECAP.” RECAP will be a collection of short news or interest items which are late-breaking, or not ready for a fully-researched article. Wherever possible, RWN will provide links to more in-depth coverage for interested readers.

As confirmed by a Road Warrior News source and depicted in the photo below, tow trucks with door labels reading “Under Contract to the OPP” covering their company logos assisted in removing rigs from downtown Ottawa over the weekend. They evidently did not want their faces to be shown, to anyone.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney joins the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Canadian Constitutional Foundation in filing a Court challenge to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergency Measures Act.
