Description


In February 2022, the "Freedom Convoy" laid siege to Parliament Hill, bringing the nation's capital to a standstill. The Freedom Convoy unpacks the larger project of extremism and social fear in the Canadian landscape, tracing the Convoy's history to pinpoint the conditions that fomented the movement.

This book unpacks the collapse of the policing system and the failure of intelligence services, and all levels of government under the occupation of Ottawa and the blockades at border crossings. What these security failures reveal is a system dominated by personalities and petty interests that had puttered along in ordinary times, but utterly seized through Canada's first genuine national, political, and security crisis in a generation.

Understanding the drivers of social polarization and political extremism -- including the sins of the state -- this book lays out a roadmap for bringing the disaffected back into the democratic fold.
