In this episode, we ride along with Chris Barber, a long-haul truck driver, self-employed owner of CB Trucking, and notably, one of the central figures in the Canadian Freedom Convoy 2022 protest. Based out of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Chris balances the demands of his career with his family life as a husband and father of two. His faithful sidekick, Skippy, often accompanies him on his journeys. Chris gained global attention as an organizer of the Freedom Convoy, a protest movement that challenged vaccine mandates and perceived government overreach. Alongside key participants like Brigitte Belton, Tamara Lich, Pat King, James Bauder, and former RCMP intelligence officer Daniel Bulford, Chris's actions fueled a significant dialogue that continues to resonate today. In the course of the protest, Chris was arrested near Parliament Hill in February 2022, triggering a chain of events that led to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoking the Emergency Act—a move that stirred substantial controversy over its implications for civil liberties. Chris later testified in the Public Order Emergency Act inquiry, which concluded in 2023 that the government's use of the act was justified, albeit marred by policing failures. The fallout from the convoy and the broader government response to the pandemic continue to be hotly debated, attracting comments from national figures such as Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre, provincial leaders like Daniel Smith, and international voices including German MEP Christine Anderson. Join us as we delve into these topics and more. Please note that we experienced some minor internet connection issues during this episode, but we've worked diligently to ensure that the content remains engaging and informative despite these hiccups.

One of the most interesting aspects of our conversation was the group's approach to reducing crime in the community. Instead of relying solely on law enforcement, they have taken a proactive approach by working with businesses and community members to identify potential safety hazards and address them before they become a problem. We also discussed the challenges the group has faced in its growth and expansion.
