Cold War-era East Berlin had armed checkpoints — now Ottawa does too

It has already been nicknamed Checkpoint Trudeau. Actually, like Cold War East Berlin, there may be need for many checkpoint names.
“The secured area includes almost 100 checkpoints that will have police presence to ensure that those seeking entry to that secure area for a unlawful reason, such as joining a protest, cannot enter the downtown core,” acting Ottawa Police Chief Steve Bell said Thursday.
Canada’s capital, operating under the Emergencies Act, now has ‘no go zones” similar to a police state. Authorities set up checkpoints with armed police officers in downtown Ottawa on Thursday — from Highway 417 (Queensway) to Parliament Hill, where dozens of trucks have been parked for three weeks.
WARMINGTON: Trudeau’s half-brother gives the PM an earful

Just because Big Brother has invoked extreme powers does not mean Little Brother approves.

This will sow distrust in our financial institutions.”
Needless to say Kemper, 38, is not impressed with his brother’s handling of the Freedom Convoy or the pandemic in general.
