It’s been a year since the Freedom Convoy descended on Ottawa to protest nearly two years of Covid-19 restrictions. For three weeks, thousands of demonstrators, bolstered by pick up trucks and semi-trailer trucks, filled the city’s downtown core. 

It was the first demonstration of its magnitude in Canadian history.

Was the government justified in invoking the Emergencies Act? Was the convoy peaceful, or was in fact there a real threat of danger?

The Freedom Occupation seeks to uncover the truth about what really happened in Ottawa last year.

Distributed by True North, this documentary from Emmanuel Productions seeks to expose the real story behind the Freedom Convoy and to tell the whole story.
