A protest vehicle breaking through police obstacles at the block border between BC and Washington at the Canadian-US border


British Columbia Sally — On February 12, several vehicles forming a convoy broke through RCMP obstacles and joined other protesters on foot to connect British Columbia and Washington to the Pacific Ocean. The border of the highway was closed.

On the morning of February 12, RCMP set a road block that restricted vehicle access to the border and allowed vehicles to pass only after confirming their intention to cross the border. This move was made in anticipation of a convoy of large vehicles heading to the border in the morning.

The lane leading from the United States was blocked by protesters who invaded before police set a road blockade.

By the time the convoy arrived at the border, police had already blocked access.

However, some vehicles crossed the median strip and approached the border, blocking access.

Protesters are demanding the abolition of COVID-19 obligations.

The majority of protesters stay behind the police wall, playing loud music, requesting signs, and ending COVID-19’s obligations and restrictions.

The development begins with other protesters setting blockages at the Ambassador Bridge in Ontario, which connects Windsor and Detroit, the Emerson Border Crossing in Manitoba, and the Katz Border Crossing in Alberta.

On February 12, police moved on the Ambassador Bridge to clear out protesters, disperse most vehicles, and move the rest of the protesters further away from border crossings.

Ontario declared a state of emergency on February 11.
