Thanks, my mistake.For the record…or more correctly, to note the record, the Windsor blockade was resolved through established means via an Ontario Supreme Court injunction (11 Feb) and Windsor Police Services and supporting services clearing the blockade within 48 hours (13 Feb)…all BEFORE the Federal government enacted the EA.
So we know that the EA was not necessary. It only served to provide some Maskirovka for the disfunctional political-police interaction in the National Capital Region.
Heck, 21-year old Zexi Ali and her injunction to stop horns blaring was more effective than the Fed-Prov-City bickering that went on.
It really seemed to be the game changer in the NCR though; was pretty pathetic that it took a 21 year old to get a court injunction and the EA to get the OPS to do anything, but the leadership there was just about as competent as city hall. Not sure who was actually in charge of the clear out, but once the RCMP, OPP and others came onboard (maybe Gatineau and some Toronto police?) was finally an effective response.
The police in Windsor did a really great job though, was nice to see but made the OPS look especially amateurish.
