Off to the Gulags!… Trudeau Hunts Down and Arrests Freedom Convoy Protest Organizer Chris Barber — UPDATE: 3 Protest Leaders Arrested

Newsweek reported:

Chris Barber, a key organizer of the Canadian trucker “freedom convoy,” has been arrested and is in custody. He is expected to face charges as the convoy protest continues its third week.

Barber’s arrest occurred in the same week that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act to break the trucker blockade of major trade routes between the U.S. and Canada.

Barber was recently named along with co-organizers Tamara Lich and Benjamin Dichter in a class-action lawsuit seeking to prevent the protesting truckers from blasting their horns. The lawsuit claimed the loud horns could cause permanent hearing damage to residents of Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.

UPDATE– Three of the protest leaders were arrested on Thursday.
