Going Dutch in Ottawa by Shirley Dolan

This past Saturday, dozens of citizens joined a “slow roll” protest in Ottawa in support of Dutch farmers. In fact, there were similar protests all across Canada in solidarity with farmers protesting new government “environmental” regulations in the Netherlands.  Following the “slow roll” from west to east Ottawa and then to downtown, the protesters gathered outside the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands on Albert Street.

The unrest among Dutch farmers is in response to a government proposal to slash emissions of “pollutants” like nitrogen oxide and ammonia by 50% by 2030.

The so-called climate crisis is the justification for calling for this policy. Farmers are being targeted and encouraged to give up their land rather than going after other large emitters. The Netherlands is a small country, yet they are the second largest exporter of agricultural products. Many are generational family farms and there is speculation that the government wants their land to support open border policies.

This agenda is promoted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and imposed by the European Union. And the Canadian government is in lockstep with this policy.  According to www.climatedepot.com/2022/07/10/trudeaus-nitrogen-policy-will-decimate-canadian-farming/, “in December 2020, the Trudeau government unveiled their new climate plan, with a focus on reducing nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer by 30% below 2020 levels by 2030.”

Still think Canada is not being influenced by the Great Reset and the WEF?
