After a week that saw the new interim leader of the federal Conservatives and other high-profile Tory MPs throw their support behind the anti-vaccine mandate protest convoy snarling Ottawa's downtown core, one of the party's Quebec MPs is breaking ranks and calling the protest a "siege."

"I spent the week undergoing the siege of Ottawa," Pierre Paul-Hus, who represents the riding of Charlesbourg—Haute-Saint-Charles, said in a social media post.

"I ask that we clear the streets and that we stop this occupation controlled by radicals and anarchist groups."
