Trudeau won’t commit to negotiate with truckers, says deploying army not “in the cards right now” – Global News

Feb 3, 2022

In response to being asked Thursday whether his government was considering deploying the Canadian military to intervene with the ongoing trucker protests in Ottawa, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said “one has to be “very, very cautious” when considering such an option. He added that there has been no requests and that it isn’t “in the cards right now.”

The PM was also asked whether his government was considering a request by organizers whether they’d be willing to negotiate. Trudeau said that was a “non-starter” as his government is committed to standing by the science in ending the pandemic and to “fulfilling the responsibility” voters gave them when it was re-elected.
