Hundreds of other protesters continue to demonstrate in the center of Ottawa, the nation’s capital. Two other border crossings with the US are also being blocked by anti-vaccine protesters.

On Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with US President Joe Biden about the border blockades.

The pair discussed their “shared challenges at the border”, Mr Trudeau said, with the prime minister promising quick action to resume trade.

Ford, the second largest car maker in the US, said on Friday it was temporarily closing production at a plant in Ohio and warned of widespread problems for both nations should the protests continue.

Freedom Convoy: Canada court orders end to trucks’ bridge blockade

A Canadian judge has granted a court order to end a truckers’ blockade of a vital trade link with the US.

The injunction approved by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice came into effect at 19:00 local time (midnight GMT) on Friday.

The Ambassador Bridge, linking Windsor, Ontario, with Detroit, Michigan, has been blockaded for five days.

Truckers’ protests against Covid restrictions are also ongoing at other border crossings and in Ottawa.

The injunction was filed by the city of Windsor and the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association, which argued that they were losing as much as $50m ($39m; £29m) per day because of the convoy.
