Why Were Rail Blockades Allowed To Go On For Weeks, While Adamson BBQ Gets Such A Massive Show Of Government Force?

The politicization of law enforcement is very dangerous and will lead to a much more divided country.

For weeks, Canada’s economy was at risk of being held hostage by illegal blockades of railroads.

Those blockades were in clear violation of court orders, and more importantly, they put a large portion of the country at risk.

Yet, the response was far weaker than many expected.

The blockades were allowed to continue for weeks, with authorities often just standing around, or even actively blocking people who tried taking down the blockades themselves.

The politicians claimed they had no control over enforcement of the law, yet after weeks of inaction, they finally ended the blockades just days after Justin Trudeau said ‘enough is enough.’

But now, we are watching as a massive amount of police resources are devoted to shutting down Adamson BBQ.

The police snuck in overnight, changed the locks, surrounded the building in a huge show of force, brought in police on horseback, and arrested the owner.

The question many have as we watch this is why such a disparity in response?

Why was the response to illegal rail blockades so weak, while the response to one guy trying to keep his small business open is so aggressive?

What we are seeing is the politicization of law enforcement, with the rules only applied to those the politicians want to see punished.

As you can imagine, that is very dangerous for Canada, as it moves us further toward what we see in anti-democratic authoritarian states.

If people continue losing confidence in how the law is enforced, we will see more division and destabilization in this country, and our rights will be eroded more and more until things aren’t recognizable here any more.

Everyone knows the answer to the question you pose, however in this day and age of political correctness it is not longer acceptable to state the obvious.

As long as the police force goes along with these politicians mandates, these politicians stay in power. If these officers can’t see the power grab by these politicians, eventually these police officers families will lose their rights & freedoms like the rest of Canadians.

Great way to put this Spencer! Leave Adamsons BBQ alone, he’s just trying to keep his Business, his livelihood alive. Our governments are trying to bankrupt ALL small businesses and ALL citizens in this Country and to what end. They bow to criminals, terrorists and the elites then demonize law abiding citizens and incarcerate them. Our Country is being destroyed by ignorant politicians, their so called “scientists” and the mainstream media. Let us ALL go and get on with our lives and stop lying to us.

How do you want your Marxist police state……salted or unsalted??


Canadians that are anything right of the Liberals and NDP are seen as a risk to the fascist left. We must be put down. opressed and controlled, often using such “expletive” force that they hope we end up cowering and blindly obeying. I was hoping for a Portland style show of force by everyday Canadians, resisting the oppressive goons.

OPP have morphed into a cowardly, politically controlled, politically correct gang. Respect is earned, and they might never earn back what they have lost since they protected the rail blockades.


Protect the guilty, punish the innocent. That’s Trudeau for you.
