Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family were moved to an undisclosed location as thousands of truckers protesting COVID-19 restrictions descended on Ottawa on Saturday.

Trudeau and his family were moved from Rideau Cottage, about 2.5 miles from the epicenter of the unpermitted protest, after multiple convoys of truckers arrived in the Canadian capital, the CBC reported.

The prime minister's office told the Ottawa Citizen in a statement that Trudeau was continuing to "isolate in the National Capital Region and work remotely.".

Trudeau has tried to dismiss the protests as "fringe" and that they do not reflect the feeling of average Canadians.

The original "Freedom Convoy" protest started in British Columbia but other convoys were expected to arrive from the east of Ottawa.

Some truckers are calling for Trudeau to drop all public health measures along with the vaccine mandates.

"Everyone has the right to protest, and there's plenty of space for that in Ottawa," MacAulay said. »

Carswell said he has received all kinds of tests and scans from Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem in hopes of getting a kidney transplant. »
