Already on Monday evening, some protesters began to leave after pistols and ammunition were seized in half trailers by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Federal police arrested 13 people during the same operation.

After more than two weeks of sanctions, the last diehards have finally cleared the Canada-US border. It is estimated that the invention of these weapons may have played a role in many protesters leaving the scene.

In Ottawa, protests continue despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau calling for an emergency law the day before.

On Tuesday morning, sources close to Ottawa City Police Chief Peter Sloli confirmed that he had made the decision to submit his resignation. Peter Sloli, who has been repeatedly criticized for managing the occupation that has ruled the city for nearly three weeks, has served as the federal capital’s police chief since October 2019.

Federal Secretary of Defense Marco Mendicino announced on Tuesday that the RCMP and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have been given a mandate to allow law enforcement to share and ensure law enforcement in the federal capital.

Emerson and Manitoba were also blocked by a convoy of vehicles, according to Global News.
