Canada court silences protesters' horns, police seize fuel


February 8, 2022

OTTAWA - Police in Canada's national capital have seized thousands of liters of fuel and removed an oil tanker as part of a crackdown to end days long protest against the government's health measures, police said on Monday.

Honking has disrupted the normally quiet life of the residents in downtown Ottawa and a judge granted an interim injunction against the noise on Monday.

A "Freedom Convoy" has disrupted life in downtown Ottawa for 11 days now. What started as a movement opposing a Canadian vaccine mandate for cross-border drivers - a requirement mirrored by a U.S. rule - has morphed into a rallying point against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and many Canadian governments' public health measures.
