After hearings held on Thursday February 10 and Friday February 11, 2022 Chief Justice Morawetz of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice granted an injunction to restrain individuals from establishing a blockade, or in any way impeding access, to the Ambassador Bridge.
Effective 7:00 pm on Friday, February 11, 2022, any persons having notice of the Order granting the injunction are restrained and enjoined from impeding or blocking access to the Ambassador Bridge and indirect or direct approaching roadways and access points for ten (10) days.
People remain at liberty to engage in a peaceful, lawful and safe protest that does not impede or block access to the Ambassador Bridge and approaching roadways. The terms of the Order and any applicable law must be complied with.
The Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA), as representative plaintiff, and intervener the City of Windsor, provided evidence regarding the dramatic local, national and international economic consequences of the ongoing blockade. The Ontario Attorney General intervened in support of the injunction, and the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association joined to support the APMA’s request.
