CANADA: Longest convoy of trucks ever recorded unites nation to protest Trudeau’s COVID mandates.
VIDEOKINGS — Thousands of cheering Canadians have lined along the route of the mammoth convoy of trucks who have set out to protest against Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates and other covid-related restrictions. Reports indicate now that it is the largest convoy of trucks ever recorded in history. “It’s 70 km long”, Benjamin Dichter, spokesman for the Freedom Convoy 2022 said.
There are estimates the Canadian convoy have already comprise 50,000 trucks from the West, East, and even from the United States. What the total number will be by Saturday, the day of the scheduled protest, “is difficult to speculate” Dichter said.
It looks like Ottawa could be swamped with long-haul trucks on Jan. 29. But with winter weather and potential issues, including possible roadblocks or traffic snarls, time will tell.
