Every town right now in Alberta and Saskatchewan is looking for workers. Badly.

If you're a hard worker you can get any job from flipping burgers to working on the oil rigs.

I'm wondering. What is your laws in the states regarding a terrorist/nuclear attack say close to midterms? Do they suspend the elections and impose new wartime measures? Maybe they're so desperate they'd go as far as set off an incident in a city just to not only keep power but go full suspension of rights across the board.

Just thinking here. I really am not sure.

As many people suddenly discovered in Canada this weekend, debit and credit cards work only so as long as the network works. A failure this weekend left about half the population here without the ability to use either.

Watched a guy frantically go to an ATM to get money after learning his debit and credit cards didn't work. Stormed off slamming doors when his card was rejected.

Always use cash when possible and always make sure you have at least a month's worth of cash stashed away for emergencies.

Hmm.. You know I can't help but think this looks kinda photoshopped.

Must be my imagination. MSM told me it's real after all.

Last week he messed with our handguns.

This week one of his MPs(?) told us that we can't expect a right to own property.

Next week he's messing with our ground beef.

He's really going all in now as dictator.

Everytime I see that image, all I see is a sprouted potato. And when the potato sproutes as bad as that one, the actual potato itself is rotted and no good anymore.

inane reporter seemed genuinely confused. The little reporter said “someone told me what a good job I was doing just last week”

I've been just around long enough to see and know they lie, fabricate, and worse.

I'm just glad that now that so many other people are starting to see what I experienced years ago when I worked in media.

Well to be fair I'd be a little teed too if I was trying to push my propaganda and everyone around me was screaming.

It's become a good wake up call to those people in Ottawa just how very little we trust or like these slime. Most of the news around here knows we loathe them. They know we know they are lying. But those in Ontario did not until this convoy dropped a culture clash of them on their doorsteps.

CTV camera man on his twitter feed remarked this the other day when he, paraphrasing, remarked 'they are treating us like the enemy.' No shit. Decades of lies tend to do that.

America should have led the way in the fight for freedom. I think the reason Canadians started it is that they have had it worse than us. Their restrictions have often been harsher. Also, in the US, we've had states like Florida, Texas, and South Dakota, and red towns scattered throughout the country that ignored a bunch of the mandates, allowing freedom-lovers to flee the most restrictive blue states rather than organize to fight back.

This is exactly why and it hasn't just been covid. It's been many things. Justin Trudeau has been active in trying to wreck Western Canada from day 1 he was in office. Business has fled from Western Canada in massive waves. Our province alone was reaching a record high for people moving in to take on work and almost overnight that all changed with the Liberal government. Suicides went up drastically as did foreclosures while not a single one of our urban neighbours in the larger places cared. Finally after a while things reached a sort of balance (not a great one mind you) and then came the triple whammy of Covid.

This is the system breaking down and the workers rising up to tell the elites their time is up.

not quite apparently. From Laura Rosen Cohen posting on Small Dead Animals, a right conservative blog in Canada:

Jason Kenney gotta Kenney so the honking will continue.

Carrot: Masks off.

Stick: Infinite annual “booster” jabs, threat of re-defining “fully” vaccinated, allowing private businesses to impose their own vaccine passports, keeping the disgusting QR codes for human beings “to help” the federal government with travel restrictions, and basing freedom (allegedly) on the mismanagement of the provincial health care system.

Also, I didn’t hear anything about the province of Alberta ceasing their Covidjihad against Christian pastors. What is so difficult, Premier Jason Kenney, about keeping yours and your army of repulsive AHS bureaucrats grubby, disgusting tyrannical hands off of Christian pastors?

He thinks we are all stupid. He’s laughing at all of us. Well, we’ll see who laugh lasts. My shekels are on the truckers.

Truckers: HOLD THAT LINE.

So they want to cut off the fuel so those trucks run out of gas and continue to plug up the downtown area?

Are you stupid? They run out of gas they'll take off the tires and really plug up that city. Or maybe they'll decide to take their trucks on the outside of the city and plug all activity going in and out of their city. You escalate, they escalate.

Probably won't be effective anyway. Just like at the Alberta border they'll just charge in anyway and bring supplies if things get bad.

Yeah. Saskatchewan is a smaller province. If you live in a bigger place you wouldn't understand but even in our largest city the people are for the most part friendly. Not everybody of course and having a good judgement of who'd want to chat is important especially in this post-covid hysterical environment. I'd bring it up during conversations simply by saying, "Man that guy's an idiot, isn't he?" just out of the blue after discussing things like weather, local things and the Roughriders or so. I've been doing it for about a month now.

It was cool. One guy I had a chat with was at his home as I was picking up work and he's so left leaning that he's got CNN on his TV. Had to dance a little around that one by saying 'some of those politicians are idiots' and he starts on Trudeau. That was a surprise TBH.

I'd love to do this in a larger centre but since covid my travelling has slowed down. Truck all these lockdown politicians.

There was a meme going around that reads: 90% of the population instantly know if you say "He's an idiot" they will immediately know who it is.

It's true. I walked around town and stated this very thing to complete strangers. Everyone know who it was.

It's likely they killed the cell phones to stop the livestreaming as, like everyone else is pointing out, CBs are a thing for truckers.

Mind you their jammers may be able to be set to jam certain frequencies and if that's the case then CBs and Starlink would become useless anyway as they'd block the frequencies those are operating on.

Now the town would likely have internet and landlines so all you're really doing is inconveniencing those people -- unless they're planning to pull that next. And they might. When the RCMP moved in it was the town people that moved in to block the RCMP from getting to the convoy until the farmers arrived so it's likely they'd declare the entire town to be part of the convoy.

It really looks like they're trying to bait them into a fight so they can turn around and use it for justification to use aggressive/lethal force on them. Hopefully cool heads prevail in the government's case because I do know just here next door in Saskatchewan how very ready the people are to fight. You think a bunch of farmers running your blockade was unsettling? The people here are at the breaking point and this convoy is the frustrations and anger of a country who know what the elites are doing and were just waiting for a spark to set things in motion.

Well that's my thoughts on the whole matter. Maybe nothing would happen if the RCMP went martial law or worse, but I just don't see it happening anymore. We're past that point.

I suspect something will come along in the meantime to suddenly cause them to reverse course. They're all giving themselves a very large window between now and then.

I think I remember hearing somewhere that the convoy has so much perishable food they've been donating some of it to the food bank. In addition they're inviting homeless to eat at all the portable BBQs along the street corners because they've been given so much food.

But muh narrative.

I remember listening to a British historian discussing the post-wartime restrictions and lockdowns from either the first or second world war (can't recall which one he said it was) and he was saying that after the war ended the government kept restrictions going for food, goods, and social gatherings. It stretched out from a few weeks to months to finally 3 years. Then the people had enough and fought back (didn't say how) and the government was forced to drop everything.

We're getting closer to this being over. One way or another.

Good catch. I thought I had seen this image before too somewhere when I saw it just now. Sure enough, pop into the comments and there you are 7 hours ahead of me in figuring it all out.

My worry is that for now they'll let up and remove these restrictions just so they can turn around later and enforce it with an even heavier hand. Because this has happened in so many other places already.

I have some family in that area of northern Alberta and have been hearing lots of fun stuff lately.

In addition, three other communities have now hired this company to do testing in their towns.

CBC News of course is now mad and have started smear campaigns against the company they hired to do the testing.

Good series. But stop watching it at the end of the second season. It just went off the rails at that point.

Seasons 1 and much of season 2 was the best of that series.
