A Fox News documentary focusing on the case premiered Monday, but the star host’s sudden departure last week hampered its release.
There are no more new episodes of Tucker Carlson Originals scheduled said a spokesperson for the American news channel on the Fox Nation streaming service.
Mr. Carlson, who was one of Fox News’ most popular hosts, has been taking aim at Canada and its liberal government on his prime-time show. He was also a staunch supporter of the “Freedom Caravan” last year.
Nearly a year after this massive protest, in which people protesting health measures blocked access to downtown Ottawa and several border crossings, Mr Carlson asked on air why the US was not taking any action in response to Canada’s public health restrictions – Which, by the time he made the comments, had mostly been withdrawn.
Why don’t we send an armed force to the north to liberate Canada from Justin Trudeau? And I mean itMr. Carlson said on January 26.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, a former US ambassador to Canada asserted that this type of comment, along with Mr. Carlson’s dominant presence in the media landscape, was dangerous.
Some people in Canada thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t a joke, because of the people it attracts and followssaid Bruce Heyman, who served as former President Barack Obama’s representative in Ottawa from 2014 until Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.

Joke or not, this comment by Mr. Carlson was quickly condemned north of the border. New Democratic MP Matthew Green sought unanimous support from his colleagues on January 31 for a motion condemning the host’s remarks in the House of Commons – without getting that.
The next day, Mr. Carlson did not miss the opportunity to make fun of the member’s move National Democratic Partysaying Canadians would appreciate his ideas.
Back to the “caravan”
Last month, Fox released a trailer for Mr. Carlson’s documentary titled Oh Canada.
It featured a montage of people who had been arrested—including the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, Maxime Bernier, and influential members of the “Freedom Caravan”—all concluding with quotes from several former presidents. Americans talk about liberating the citizens of other countries.
Mr. Bernier explained that he interviewed Fox in January or February for the documentary about his arrest, in June 2021, while participating in demonstrations against measures related to COVID-19.
Mr. Carlson also interviewed Mr. Bernier on his show shortly after the arrest, which took place in Manitoba.

He insisted that the Canadian media did not adequately cover the event.
I know that many Canadians didn’t really know what happened to the leader of a national party fighting for freedom of choice.
At the time, the media quoted a spokeswoman RCMP

Regarding Mr. Carlson’s controversial statement, Mr. Bernier indicated that he believed the host was joking and that he did not agree with the idea of the United States intervening in Canadian business.
