The demonstrators, who demanded from the federal and regional authorities the abolition of COVID restrictions, left the Ambassador Bridge, which connects the Canadian Windsor (Ontario) and the American Detroit (Michigan).

On Friday, the Ontario Superior Court issued an order for truckers to release the Ambassador Bridge. On Saturday, reinforced police squads arrived at the bridge, which gradually began to squeeze out protesters against coronavirus restrictions of citizens. 12 people were detained, the rest dispersed.
