Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family moved to an undisclosed location as thousands of people and trucks gathered at the capital of Ottawa as part of a truck convoy from across the nation to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The report is in addition to his own post that Trudeau had been exposed to COVID-19 and was isolating.
Last night, I learned that I have been exposed to COVID-19. My rapid test result was negative. I am following @OttawaHealth rules and isolating for five days. I feel fine and will be working from home. Stay safe, everyone – and please get vaccinated.

A massive truck convoy called the Freedom Convoy had ascended upon the nation’s capital city to peacefully protest against mandates that will keep unvaccinated truckers from being able to cross the border into the U.S.
Trudeau had called the group a “fringe minority” earlier, though tens of thousands are clearly in the city protesting.
Trudeau has yet to not any plans to make changes based on the protests.
Instead, the nation’s leader has gone into hiding, hoping the protesters will soon leave. However, his lockdown agenda continues to frustrate Canadians, who are no longer willing to put up with the ongoing restrictions.
