Roughly 100 Canadian police officers assembled Saturday morning in the border city of Windsor, Ontario, to begin removing protesters and vehicles that have mostly blocked traffic since Monday on the Ambassador Bridge, a crucial U.S.-Canada trade corridor.
“We urge all demonstrators to act lawfully & peacefully,” Windsor Police said on its official Twitter account. “Commuters are still being asked to avoid the areas affected by the demonstrations at this time.”

About 50 protesters, some waving Canadian flags and singing the national anthem, “O Canada,” remained at an intersection near the mouth of the bridge on a major north-south corridor. At least three pickup trucks that were part of the protest departed after police arrived sometime after 8 a.m. Eastern time.

Protesters packed up supplies Saturday morning in Windsor, preparing for police enforcement of a court injunction against their demonstration.

Buses were available for protesters to board if they chose to leave.
A Canadian judge granted police permission to forcibly remove the protesters starting Friday evening. The City of Windsor and representatives for the auto industry applied for the court order.
The bridge, one of the busiest border crossings in North America, accommodates roughly 30% of annual two-way U.S.-Canada trade, which recent U.S. data pegs at more than $600 billion.
Over $28 billion of two-way U.S.-Canada trade in motor vehicles and auto parts was transported last year via the Ambassador Bridge, according to Statistics Canada.
Commercial trucks have been rerouted north to the Blue Water Bridge, which crosses the St. Clair River and connects Port Huron, Mich., with Sarnia, Ontario, roughly 66 miles north of the Detroit-Windsor crossing. Truckers have faced long delays in crossing the border.
