    Canadian protesters defied a court deadline, remaining at the Ambassador Bridge Friday night and into Saturday morning in protest of COVID vaccination mandates within the nation.

    "Canadian truckers protesting vaccine mandates remained at the Ambassador Bridge connecting Detroit to Windosr, Ottawa, Canada, early Saturday after both a 7 p.m. court and midnight deadline from Ottawa police where a state of emergency was declared," Fox News reported. "The 'Freedom Convoy' has remained at the bridge for five days, causing shortages of auto parts that have forced General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Honda to close plants or cancel shifts."

    "Do you think I care? Do you think I care about a fine?" one remaining protester reportedly said. "I'm going to pay a fine? No. You think I care about their mandates? No. This needs to end."

    Authorities moved into the area to breakup the blockade early Saturday morning, reports said.

    "Dozens of police moved in" "to clear the demonstration," according to Fox News. "Police, wearing yellow safety vests, moved into place around 8:45 a.m. local time, according to CBC News, directing protesters to clear the bridge. CBC reporters also noted that police brought several armored vehicles and that law enforcement had formed a blockade."

    "The Windsor Police & its policing partners have commenced enforcement at and near the Ambassador Bridge," the department said via social media. "We urge all demonstrators to act lawfully & peacefully. Commuters are still being asked to avoid the areas affected by the demonstrations at this time."

    Rebel News contributor Isabelle Rivo on Saturday morning posted a live video feed from the bridge as authorities showed up to remove remaining protesters:

   

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that he will do "whatever it takes" to crack down on protesters blocking passages along the U.S.-Canada border, The Daily Wire reported.

    "Prime Minister Justin Trudeau convened the Incident Response Group on the ongoing illegal blockades taking place across the country that are threatening trade, jobs, the economy, and our communities," a statement from the PM's office said. "He was joined by ministers and senior officials who are actively engaged and working closely with provincial and municipal governments, and who are assessing the requirements and deploying all federal resources necessary to help them get the situation under control."

    "The group committed to continue providing federal resources to support enforcement efforts in Ottawa where the occupation has significantly disrupted local residents' lives, impacting businesses and families with harassment, threats of violence, and vandalism," Trudeau's office continued. "They reiterated that the federal government has and will continue to respond to all requests for appropriate support and resources."

    "The Prime Minister and ministers will continue to work closely with all orders of government and local authorities to respond with whatever it takes to help provinces and municipalities end the blockades and bring the situation under control," the statement closed. "The government's top priority remains keeping people and communities safe, and defending jobs, trade, and our economy."
