Canadian deputy prime minister Chrystia Freeland received an icy welcome to Alberta on Friday, as a man accosted her in a city hall building, calling her a traitor and a "fucking bitch." Video of the incident has been circulated on social media.
When the Canadian government confronted "freedom convoy" truckers paralyzing downtown Ottawa earlier this year in protest against vaccine mandates, Freeland -- who is also finance minister -- was the smiling face of the country's alarmingly tyrannical response.

After Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada's Emergencies Act for the first time in the country's history, Freeland orchestrated the freezing of financial accounts of hundreds of protesters -- without any due process.
On Friday, Freeland -- who was born in Alberta -- was about to board an elevator in a Grand Prairie city hall building when a man in blue jeans and a sleeveless t-shirt called her first name. Freeland turned and cheerfully replied, "Yes?"
Then came a blistering verbal tirade that carried on until the elevator doors closed, with Freeland, surrounded by three other women, smiling and hugging the corner of the car:
"The fuck you doing in Alberta? You fucking traitorous fucking bitch. Get the fuck out of this province! You're a fucking traitor, you fucking bitch!"
A woman who was accompanying the man and recording the action chimed in, "You don't belong here."

After that, another man approached the outspoken man and told him to "get."
"Don't tell me to 'get.' I'll walk off on my own power, ok, so back off, fucking back off," he replied. "That fucking cunt shouldn't be even allowed be allowed in Alberta. She's destroying this country and your kids are gonna have no future. Ok? I hope you get it. Somebody's gotta get it, because we're the only ones fighting for this country right now!"

According to CTV News, the man who accosted Freeland may be Grand Prairie resident Elliot McDavid, who "has been an active organizer of freedom convoy events in his area."

"What happened yesterday was wrong," Freeland tweeted on Saturday. "Nobody, anywhere, should have to put up with threats and intimidation."
In a Sunday address, Trudeau condemned the verbal attack and, in true leftist style, predictably portrayed it as an act of intolerance:
"We are seeing increasingly people in public life and people in positions of responsibility, particularly women, racialized Canadians, people of minority or different community groups, being targeted almost because of the increasing strength of your voices."
