Canada protests – level 1

15-02-2022 07:00

Truck drivers in Canada protest. They don’t agree with COVID-19 rules. Hundreds of trucks drive in the streets of Ottawa. Ottawa is the capital city. It is on the border with the US.

Trucks are everywhere. Other cars can’t go through the city. Some small businesses must close. People are angry. The trucks are noisy. The air is dirty.

The protests start over two weeks ago. Drivers must give police their fuel. Some drivers are very angry. Police arrest them.

Police don’t have control over the situation. The Canadian government offers help.

Difficult words: border (the line between two countries, fuel (things like gas or petrol which machines need to run), arrest (when police take a person to a police station, and he must stay there).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
