I was a Teamster for a number of years. That union is wholly corrupt from the bottom to the top. With a rare few exceptions and those people are rendered ineffectual by the chain of command.Thinking back to the Blantifa riots of the recent past: what if the truckers protesting were all members of the "Black Truckers of Canada*" organization? Would the police reaction be the same?
*I'm not sure such an org exists but IF it did...
I can see that if you are in the city or border crossing you might get perturbed at the traffic and not like or agree with the protest. Same way I'd feel if I encountered a highway riot here. But at least the trucker protest is "scheduled". Speaking of scheduled, not much happened with the protest here after the Sbowl... You can thank the Teamsters for that

Worker welfare is pretty low on their priorities and colluding with corporations and government are what they're good at.
