Freedom convoy: protests put U.S & Canada trade at risk

US urges Canada to end trucker border blockade

The US government has urged Canada to use federal powers to ease the growing economic disruption caused by the blockade of the vital Ambassador Bridge by protesters opposed to coronavirus mandates.

The closure of North America’s busiest international land border crossing, a vital supply route for Detroit’s carmakers, has halted some auto output and left officials scrambling to limit economic damage. Canadian federal ministers have called the blockade illegal and asked protesters to return home.

Police near the Ambassador Bridge had begun receiving additional manpower, said Drew Dilkens, the mayor of Windsor, Ontario, which borders Detroit. Dilkens later said Windsor was seeking an injunction from Ontario superior court to have the protesters removed, adding he was striving to resolve the issue peacefully.
