    The Spin

    Left narrative

    The "Freedom Convoy" represented a grab bag of right-wing grievances. It was a circus of anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, Trudeau haters, and far-right conspiracy theorists. Leading members of this convoy calamity must be singled out and punished accordingly.

    Right narrative

    The "Freedom Convoy" was the most successful human rights protest in a generation. Working class people stood up to elitist and authoritarian COVID policies. These were not "insurrectionists" or "Neo-Nazis"--this was an organic blue collar movement. The fact that those who challenged tyrannical policies could face prison time is a clear indication that Canada is becoming a dictatorship of the worst kind.
