50,000 Strong Trucker Convoy Travels to Ottawa, Canada, Demanding End to Covid-19 Vaccine Mandates
BY CAPTAINDARETOFLY ON January 27 – 2022
A convoy of truckers is travelling across Canada towards Ottawa in protest of the government’s oppressive Covid-19 vaccine mandates for the trucking industry.
Called the “Freedom Convoy 2022,” the effort involves more than 50,000 truckers who refuse to comply with the vaccine mandate and are being forced out of their jobs as a result.
The “slow roll,” which raised $3.5 million (£2.5 million) worth of support in only 11 days, was joined by truckers all across the country who drive both intrastate and cross-border throughout North America.
The GoFundMe page for the convoy currently shows support from more than 44,000 donors who are helping the truckers to be able to stay in Ottawa for as long as necessary to see the mandates removed.
“We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people,” the GoFundMe page reads.
“Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed, and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive.”
The money raised will be used to pay for “fuel, food and lodgings to help ease the pressures of this arduous task,” the page further explains.
Over the weekend, truckers and their supporters from western Canada began their journey east, stopping in cities and towns throughout British Columbia. Thousands of additional Alberta truckers joined them once they reached that area.
It’s estimated that there are more than 50,000 truck drivers and supporters joining up with the convoy the further east it moves.
According to reports, the caravan from Edmonton alone was said to be more than 40 kilometres long before it arrived in Calgary to finish the trek to Ottawa.
“From British Columbia, estimates put their caravan, who have now joined up in Alberta on their way east, at well over 70 kilometres in length,” reported one media outlet.
“Truckers in Ontario and other parts of eastern Canada will begin, or already have done so, separate convoys to Ottawa in the coming days.”
The current mandate stated that truckers across Canada who are crossing the border must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by the 15th of January.
