About the Freedom Convoy Rally – Watch Online
The Freedom Convoy 2022 is a protest against the government of Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine requirements to re-enter Canada by land, which took effect on January 15, 2022. Truck convoys traversing all of Canada’s provinces converged on Ottawa on January 29, 2022, with a rally scheduled for Parliament Hill. Tamara Lich, the secretary of the Maverick Party – a western Canadian separatist party – organized the fundraising. Several protestors have also expressed general opposition to Justin Trudeau.
Erin O’Toole’s connection with the protest
Truckers behind the protest have been denounced as a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views” by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Several Conservative politicians have supported the movement, while Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole encouraged truckers to get vaccinated instead. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce supports vaccination, but has called for extending the deadline for enacting the vaccine mandate, while the Canadian Manufacturing Coalition supports lifting the mandate immediately.
