Ottawa mayor says police ‘fully prepared’ for possible Canada Day protests

In the shadow of the truckers’ protests and “Rolling Thunder” event earlier this year, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said on Monday that the city is prepared for any possible Canada Day protests in the nation’s capital. “I want to assure everyone the RCMP, Ottawa Police, Police de Gatineau, and the Parliamentary Protective Service are fully prepared to respond to any situation,” said Watson.
