OTTAWA—Truckers and supporters of the “Freedom Convoy” rallied in Ottawa on Jan. 29 to call for the abolition of vaccine mandates and others COVID-19 restrictive public health measures. The day was festive and reminiscent of the atmosphere of Canada Day in the capital, but lots of colours were added to the traditional red and white, with many people flying flags of Quebec, other countries, and those with political messages. Here’s a snapshot of what transpired.
