Ep. 113: The Freedom Convoy 2022

Ep. 113: The Freedom Convoy 2022
For 23 days a trucker protest, also known as the Freedom Convoy 2022, who opposed the vaccine mandates came to a forceful end with the arrest of the Convoy leaders and the towing of at least 21 vehicles that were blocking the Parliament in Ottawa, Canada. The blockade had choked the city for more than three weeks before police used the emergency powers, to tow trucks, arrest 200 protesters and clear the area. The emergency measures gave police the authority to declare some protests illegal — including the streets around Parliament Hill — as no-protest zones where people could be subject to arrest, and to force service providers like tow-truck operators to remove their big rigs from the protest scene, and authorize financial-services providers to freeze accounts and assets belonging to protest participants. However, both the emergency measure and the freezing of bank accounts were lifted last week and many Covid restrictions will be lifted in March and April. But the troubles aren't over. The issue now moves to the halls of justice where businesses have filed a class action lawsuit to the tune of $306M … Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces criticism from opposition lawmakers who characterized his move as government overreach and an infringement on individuals’ rights. So what really happened with the trucker party protests? Its about business. The truckers’ actions impeded cross-border deliveries from Canada to U.S. factories. It disrupted the Canadian economy, especially for businesses near the protest sites. It caused chaos and a lot of noise. Life for Ottowa residents can return to normal instead of inhaling vehicle fumes and hearing incessant honking. Despite the legal wranglings that’s ahead for both sides, the Covid mask mandate restrictions could soon be loosened. Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and New Foundland are ending vaccine passports in March. Alberta and Saskatchewan dropped them in the past week. B.C. hasn’t dropped the vaccine passport but has lifted indoor capacity limits. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/sabah-fakhoury/message

Ep. 109: Democracy Under Siege
Today marks the one year anniversary since the United States Capitol Building was attacked by Americans, jolting our democracy and this nation to its feet. It was unheard of. It was unimaginable. But those who witnessed it could only weep. Others tried to explain what they experienced. Today, we look back through the eyes of the camera lense, which aptly captured the fateful events of 1/6/2021. Lives were lost. Mistakes were made by the U.S. Capitol Police who were unprepared despite warnings from the FBI based on their monitoring of social media activity of people labeled as the Right, Neo-Nazis, Proud Boys, and the rise of hate crimes. Only in this instance, it does not involve Muslim extremists, which the FBI and subsequent administrations have been laser focused on since 9/11/2001 and ignoring the Right, Neo-Nazis and other decentralized militant groups in our nation who are willing to threaten government officials. Beware of disinformation in political discourse, especially during election years. Today, millions of people are still convinced there was fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s advisory panel unanimously approved a booster shot of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for select groups of people. However, the FDA is delaying a decision on authorizing Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine for 12-to-17-year-olds to assess whether the shot may lead to heightened risk of Myocarditis, a rare inflammatory heart condition. Then on Friday, vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously to recommend a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine at least two months after people 18 and older got the first dose. Reason: lower effectiveness compared to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. ———— Weather continues to be problematic this weekend from Arkansas to New York with heavy rains and possible tornadoes. ——————— Over 10,000 John Deere employees began their strike at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday at 14 U.S. plants in Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas. ——————- You have no doubt heard that nearly 60 cargo ships are stuck floating outside the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

It’s the lead single from her upcoming album, 30, which drops November 15. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/sabah-fakhoury/message
