With 191 people arrested and 79 vehicles towed, the police have reclaimed Ottawa’s downtown from its occupiers 24 days after the trucker convoy rolled into the Canadian capital’s core.

The protesters, including truckers and their supporters, have gathered in Ottawa and blocked the city centre since January 28 to oppose the government’s vaccine requirement for truckers crossing into the US.
