Police in Windsor, Ont. The task of clearing the protest against Ambassador Bridge

Slowly but surely, the police in Windsor, Ont. Moving on to the protesters at the entrance of the Ambassador Bridge.

“OPP and the rest of our partners who are working here are doing it in the safest way possible. We have gone through all the steps to resolve this peacefully through diplomacy, dialogue, and we are still doing that. We are still prioritizing human lives, human safety, everyone, including protesters, and we will get through this,” said Windsor Deputy Chief of Police, Jason Bellaire.

After 8 a.m. at six on the day of protests against the COVID-19 mandate, police officers appeared in buses and exited at the base of the bridge.

Plain-dressed officers began talking to people in vehicles, and about 10 passenger vehicles and three transport trucks left the scene to cheer for other protesters.

As the last transport truck drove away, a line of police officers began to advance as a large crowd of protesters met police at the intersection of Huron Church Road and College Avenue.

Many people in the area are using megaphones and chanting “Freedom!” sloganeering. And abusing the police.

Asked what his message was to the protesters, Bellaire said he wanted them to know that he had done his job in trying to send his message.

“And I think the message is changing now and it’s been transformed into something that they didn’t want to. But what I would ask them to do is that they have the power to stop it now. I have the power to listen to the officers below. The officers have spoken in good faith throughout this trial, and I would ask them for the benefit of everyone in our local community, our international community, and for their well-being, I would ask them to stop. I’ll tell you… that’s why no arrests have been made. Away.”

Belair further said that no arrests have been made so far.

An Ontario Superior Court judge granted an injunction to remove protesters, which took effect at 7 p.m. Friday.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford also declared a state of emergency and protesters who refuse to comply could face fines of up to $100,000 and up to a year in prison.

The Ambassador Bridge, the busiest crossing in North America, has been closed since Monday due to protests.
