The Freedom Convoy of truckers in Canada opposed to a federal vaccine mandate is making its way to Ottawa and is making headlines around the world. UFC fighter Tanner “The Bulldozer” Boser says he supports the Freedom Convoy.
“Yes, I support the freedom convoy,” Boser told Lakeland Connect in an exclusive interview. “It’s a demonstration aimed at getting the government to drop vaccine mandates, which at the moment, are an affront to Canadian citizens who are being made to choose between the ability to earn an honest living and bodily autonomy.”
Lakeland Connect asked Boser if he thinks the federal government will back down to the convoy as they are set to make Ottawa the biggest truck stop in Canada on January 29.
“I don’t think the government is scared because I don’t think the politicians in Ottawa are affected by things the way the average citizen is,” Boser told Lakeland Connect. “I think they’re so disenfranchised from reality that they are rarely affected by the choices they make and the rules they themselves put into place, which makes it dangerous and highly hypocritical. I hope I’m wrong though. I hope they’re worried.”
Prime Minister Trudeau called the Freedom Convoy a “Small fringed minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa.”
“Who are holding unacceptable views that they’re expressing do not represent the views of Canadians,” Prime Minister Trudeau said. “Who have been there for each other, who know, following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values as a country.”
Lakeland Connect asked Boser if he had anything else he would like to add about what the Prime Minister said.
“F*ck Trudeau,” Boser concluded.
