OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Ottawa’s police chief resigned Tuesday amid criticism of his inaction against the trucker protests that have paralyzed Canada’s capital for over two weeks, while demonstrators elsewhere across the country abandoned their blockade at a U.S. border crossing.
Trucks with horns blaring rolled out of the southern Alberta town of Coutta, ending the siege that had disrupted trade for more than two weeks. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police earlier this week arrested 11 people at the blockaded crossing and seized a cache of guns and ammunition.
