Did PM Trudeau just download the blockade crisis onto the provinces?

At the time of this recording, the nationwide rail blockades continue with no end in sight. The prime minister admits there has been no progress in meaningful talks and told a Friday afternoon news conference it’s time for the blockades to come down.

What does that mean? There is no plan. There is no deadline. And there is no consequence for demonstrators if the blockades remain in place.

Has he effectively downloaded this national crisis onto the provinces?
