Blockades are not legal

Prime Minister Trudeau has stated that in Canada there is freedom to demonstrate and to protest.  I agree with that concept. I do not agree that that freedom allows those protesting to actively shut down and interfere with the lawful rights of the rest of the population in this country to carry on with their lawful right to go about their daily lives, work, travel on our roadways, etc.  

I do not agree that protestors should be allowed to shut down infrastructure anywhere in the country or to stop people from entering buildings. Blockades are not legal! I do think it is time for our governments at all levels and our police and legal system to protect the rights and freedoms of the rest of the people in this country.
