Talking to Americans: Why Truckers are in Ottawa protesting, Part One on BCB TV

On February 9th, Texas Trucking broadcaster BCB Live TV (“The Safest Station in the Nation!”) invited me on to explain the Freedom Convoy 2022 to American viewers.

I really appreciated the fact that host “DriveSafe Dave” allowed me to put the 2022 Convoy in the context of Canada’s 20 years of pandemic experience and pandemic research – which, unfortunately, Canada and the world discarded completely in dealing with COVID-19.

I loved ending the interview with the laundry list of important changes that have occurred over the two weeks since the Truckers left Vancouver for Ottawa: Quebec killed the vax tax; Saskatchewan and Alberta are eliminating mandates; Erin O’Toole got fired; and now, Liberals are publicly disavowing Justin Trudeau.

This segment is probably the best overview I’ll ever do explaining Freedom Convoy 2022. I gather I will be back on BCB with an update in the days ahead.
