Ottawa police continued an operation Saturday to clear out the so-called “Freedom Convoy” that has been encamped for 22 days in the nation’s capital. More than 100 protesters, including four key organizers, have been arrested and at least 21 vehicles towed.

Police said Saturday afternoon that they had deployed “a chemical irritant” on demonstrators to stop “assaultive behaviour.” They said demonstrators wearing body armour and carrying smoke grenades had been arrested.

The push comes as federal officials announced $20 million in funding for local businesses forced to close by the protests. Officials said 76 bank accounts worth $3.2 million have been frozen over ties to the protest, under the powers of the Emergencies Act.
