“Insurrection From Within” Exploring the Failed Police Response to the Freedom Convoy with Stephanie Carvin

The failure of police to anticipate the ‘Freedom Convoy,’

 

 

“We need more trust in this organization, we need transparency, and we’re just not simply getting it. And I think this assessment is opening the door and offering some evidence to some of the worst fears that I think we’ve had.”

 

Stephanie Carvin, a Carleton University international affairs professor and a former CSIS intelligence analyst, talks about the failure of police to anticipate the ‘Freedom Convoy,’ and how it was allowed to spiral out of control.

Evidence and testimony show signs of intelligence failure, communication breakdowns, erratic leadership, and an “insurrection from within” Ottawa Police.

While warnings from outside sources went ignored, an OPS unit produced a politically biased and “unprofessional” intelligence report that Carvin says reveals cultural issues within the ranks of the Ottawa Police.
