Vancouver-based radio host Kid Carson was “politely shown the door” this week after railing against vaccine mandates and supporting the ongoing truckers’ protest in Ottawa, Canada, he told RT on Thursday. Carson believes that despite the best efforts of the mainstream media, the public is sick of the “corruption and craziness” of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government, and the truckers parked on Parliament Hill aren’t going anywhere.
Carson was dropped last week by Vancouver’s Z95.3 FM, after an on-air rant against vaccine mandates and digital vaccine passports, which he said were a form of “digital ID that will control every aspect of [children’s] lives.” He also spoke out against media reports portraying the ‘Freedom Convoy’ protest in Ottawa, Ontario as racist and hateful based on a number of flags spotted in the crowd, declaring “If you think the trucker convoy in Ottawa is a racist movement, you’ve been tricked. You’ve been fooled.”
Z95.3 FM described Carson’s views as “misleading or inaccurate,” and said that such opinions “do not represent what Z95.3 is all about.”
“I was politely shown the door,” Carson told RT on Thursday. “I spoke out against the digital vaccine passports, talking about how this is a bit of a dangerous technology…I also supported the truckers in Ottawa. This was too much for the radio station. They didn’t want the backlash, they still believe that most people don’t want to hear the truth.”
While a number of Canada’s provincial premiers have rescinded their vaccine mandates and vaccine pass systems, a nationwide vaccine mandate for cross-border truckers remains in place, and all Canadians need proof of vaccination to travel within and depart Canada. The ‘Freedom Convoy’ protest still blocking much of downtown Ottawa began in opposition to the mandate for truckers, and has since expanded, with protesters calling for the total abolition of Covid restrictions.
