Ann Vandersteel lauds Freedom Convoy, slams Trudeau for dismissing protest’s significance – Brighteon.TV
02/01/2022 // Nolan Barton // Views

Ann Vandersteel lauded the Canadian truckers for standing up against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate and staging a "Freedom Convoy" of trucks over the weekend from the western province of British Columbia. The convoy was greeted and cheered on by supporters on the way to Ottawa, the capital of Canada.

"That is great. There's actually hope for humanity when I see kids out there like that standing up there in support of the truckers who do not want to have the poisonous jab forced on them so they can do their business and bring home food for their family and get a paycheck," said Vandersteel during the January 28 episode of "Steel Truth" on Brighteon.TV.

"That, ladies and gentlemen, is all we need to know that there is hope for humanity. We just need to continue to push this information out so people understand what's at stake."

Vandersteel also played audio recordings of children expressing their support to the thousands of truckers who are challenging the Canadian government's vaccine mandate.

These are some of their messages:

"Hi, my name is Gabriel. I'm from Manitoba. I'm turning 13 year years old tomorrow and I just wanted to say it's the best birthday gift ever having you guys fighting for us."

"Hi, my name is Matthew. I'm 12 years old and I'm from Alberta. And I just want to say you guys are awesome. Keep on trucking. Thank you."

"Hello, I'm Talia. I'm 10 years old. I come from Manitoba. I just wanted to thank you guys for what you did. I'm praying for you."

One kid who didn't mention her name simply said: "Thank you for fighting for my freedom. Good night."


The convoy was organized in response to a regulation implemented in January, which requires truckers returning from the United States to show proof of vaccination. But in recent days, it has broadened to include Canadians critical of pandemic restrictions in general and of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Vandersteel: Trudeau is one pathetic individual

Vandersteel herself was critical of the Canadian prime minister. "Trudeau is one pathetic individual. He has taken his time to not only dodge questions about this, but also throw what he considers to be water on the fire of the Canadians," Vandersteel said.

The Brighteon.TV host was referring to a press briefing in which Trudeau expertly dismissed the significance of the protest.

Trudeau said: "The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa, or who are holding unacceptable views that they're expressing, do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other, who know that following the science and stepping up to protect each other are the best ways to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values as a country. Next question."

Throughout Saturday, January 29, the trucks clogged the streets in and around Parliament – most of them bearing flags or signs denouncing public health measures related to the pandemic.

Thousands of protesters on foot roamed through the parked vehicles or gathered on the lawn in front of Parliament. Some of them carried Canadian flags upside down.

According to reports, the protests were loud and freewheeling but generally peaceful.

Protesters were still demonstrating Monday, January 31. Ottawa police asked the public to avoid the downtown area, citing "traffic, noise and safety issues."

Trudeau cowers from protesters

Several Canadian news outlets reported that Trudeau and his family had been moved out of their official residence by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a precaution.

The prime minister refused to meet the protesters.

"This is not the story of our pandemic, our country, our people," he said. "My focus is standing with Canadians and getting through this pandemic."

But Candice Bergen, deputy leader of the Conservative Party, said the protesters represented millions who "have had enough of lockdowns and broken promises."

"They deserve to be heard and they deserve respect," she wrote on Twitter.

Reports on social media indicate that truckers in the U.S. may be planning a similar demonstration that would see them drive from California in the West to the country's capital in Washington DC.
