16 Ways the Truckers Ignited Canada for the Long Haul
by Barry W. Bussey

From late January to mid February 2022, the eyes of Canada—and indeed, the world—were on Ottawa, Ontario as the Trucker Freedom Convoy converged from all parts of the nation. They were there to tell Prime Minister Trudeau that enough was enough, and they were not going to give in to his politicized mandate that required all cross-border truckers to receive the COVID 19 vaccine. Their journey caught the imagination of a nation tired of lockdowns, mandates, and government overreach. Hailed by many as heroes, and by the government and government sponsored media as “terrorists” and a “fringe minority with unacceptable views,” the truckers took an historic stand for freedom on Canadian soil. In 210° Celsius: 16 Ways the Truckers Ignited Canada for the Long Haul, lawyer Barry W. Bussey chronicles the events of the protest, including the invocation of the Emergencies Act, and he highlights the impact the convoy had on Canadians’ perception of government, the judiciary, and personal freedom. Replete with eyewitness testimony from the streets of the capital and the sworn testimony given at the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC), this thoughtful, well-researched presentation calls on Canadians to reflect on this peaceful protest and the government’s response to COVID-19. The peaceful protest stands as a beacon of how Canadians can stand up to government excess and force changes to government policy. Wherever readers stand on these issues, 210° Celsius: 16 Ways the Truckers Ignited Canada for the Long Haul will stimulate conversation and inspire us all to consider what it means to be a Canadian and what role government should play in our lives.
