Police arrest 47 of the remaining protesters in Ottawa Police say they have made 47 arrests in Ottawa Saturday as they cleared downtown, a day after a weeks-long protest turned violent. City, provincial and federal law enforcement officers began an unprecedented operation Friday morning to remove demonstrators, their trucks and cars, that have been blockading the streets. On Friday, more than 100 people were arrested and 21 vehicles were towed. Another 38 vehicles have been towed since Friday, police say. Wellington Street in front of Parliament has been cleared. Police say they will continue restoring the streets to normal order over the coming days. Tensions between Canadian authorities and protesters have been simmering for weeks as crowds and idling trucks filled the capital, demanding the elimination of Covid-19 preventative measures including mask and vaccination requirements. "Protesters continue to be aggressive and assaultive on officers. They are refusing to comply with the orders to move," police tweeted Saturday about 12:20 p.m. ET. "You will have seen officers use a chemical irritant in an effort to stop the assaultive behavior and for officer safety." Police tweeted Saturday that they had arrested protesters with smoke grenades and fireworks and wearing body armor. Additional smoke grenades and fireworks were found in a vehicle. "One protester launched a gas canister and was arrested," Ottawa police said in a tweet. Police said their response would have public and officer safety in mind. "We were slow and methodical, yet you were assaultive and aggressive with officers and the horses. Based on your behavior, we are responding by including helmets and batons for our safety," police said. Earlier Saturday morning, police warned protesters to leave. More than 100 checkpoints remain to keep more protesters from entering the city. Parliament was under a "hold and secure" order similar to a lockdown. Canadian police working to clear Ottawa downtown of protesters say they have arrested more than 100 demonstrators On Friday, the gridlock reached a crescendo when Ottawa police say protesters assaulted officers and tried to remove their weapons. One person was arrested after throwing a bicycle toward a police horse, police said, and by the end of the day, more than 100 were arrested and 21 vehicles were towed. Demonstrators have been blockading Ottawa streets since January 29; despite threats of legal consequences, many showed no signs of backing down. Law enforcement officers began an unprecedented operation Friday morning to remove protesters and their vehicles. On Saturday, Legislators resumed emergency debate on the Emergencies Act, which had been interrupted Friday, House Speaker Anthony Rota said in a statement. Ottawa police chief says 'action is imminent' in the plan to clear the area of Covid-19 demonstrators The Emergencies Act -- which is being invoked for the first time since it passed in 1988 -- can provide for the use of the military but may not necessarily lead to that, and the Prime Minister said the government is not bringing in troops. The points of contention have become more delicate in recent days as some protesters placed young children between them and police. CNN has observed those children on the protest site in the last several days. "This is a reminder if you bring a minor with you to an unlawful protest you may be charged and be fined up to $5000 and potentially spend up to five years in prison," police said in a tweet Ask questions in the comments and subscribe to the channel!
