DEVELOPING STORY: Organizers of the Freedom Convoy are being arrested tonight across Canada.
“Hold the line,” organizer Tamara Lich shouted as she was handcuffed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s goon squad.
Barber and Lich remain in police custody and will face criminal charges, sources told the outlet.
Trudeau invoked Monday the never-before-used Emergencies Act, which gives the government the power to prohibit the public from assembling and traveling in response to the protests. The act also allows the government to arrest people and freeze their funds.
