In this episode, Mikhaila hosts B.J. Dichter who is a trucker, spokesperson, and organizer of the freedom convoy protest that has been moving around different Canadian cities in the last few months in response to mandates on truckers imposed through the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown regulations and currently is set up in downtown Ottawa. Benjamin explains the details concerning the protests, a call for a return to the pre-pandemic working conditions in regards to the transportation infrastructure of the Canadian economy.

Peterson and Dichter cover the primary questions Canadians and people around the world are posing on the purpose, intent, and institution of the freedom convoy protest.

The pair cover the following topics in this special relevant interview,

The use of automatic data tracking apps sanctioned by the government. Is this about being anti-vax? Is this a blockade of trucks impeding the cities traffic? The Mayor's order for local businesses to close? Is this an alt-right dangerous movement with a lot of non-Canadians participating? What happened to the statues and flags getting all the negative media coverage? Has there been any violence? Have tow trucks been asked to move the trucks? Interaction with the Ottawa police? The most recent news on the emergency measure acts. What happened to all the donations to the freedom convoy? Ways to support the protest
