Ontario, Canada leader Doug Ford declares state of emergency over trucker protests: LIVE UPDATES

Fast Facts

Ontario Premier Doug Ford on Friday declared a state of emergency in response to the ongoing Ambassador Bridge blockade and protests in Ottawa against coronavirus restrictions.

Ford got into a testy exchange with a reporter Friday after CTV News published photos purportedly showing the Canadian leader giving a thumbs up while snowmobiling in the Muskoka area — more than four hours away from Ottawa — as protests were ongoing in the Canadian capital last Saturday.

Canada Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos revealed Friday that the federal government will announce changes next week to coronavirus measures being taken at the border, as the trucker protests continue.
