Canadian police officers clashed with protestors on Saturday in the capital of Ottawa, Ontario.

Demonstrators and protesting truckers continue to occupy downtown Ottawa, after more than three weeks of protests against COVID-19 measures and vaccine mandates.

On the west coast of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have set up checkpoints in Surrey, British Columbia in preparation for dealing with another convoy of big rigs and vehicles that is making its way to the lower mainland, CTV reports.
