The #UnitedWeRoll convoy is a massive caravan of heavy-duty trucks travelling across Canada, taking a pro-pipeline, pro-jobs message right to Justin Trudeau’s doorstep in Ottawa.
This #UnitedWeRoll movement is Canada-wide. Every small town along the way has had supporters standing on the side of the Trans Canada Highway, waving and cheering their support.
It’s 100% grassroots — ordinary people have crowdfunded the trip, and everyone aboard is a volunteer. Along the route, local merchants give us courtesy discounts on everything from pizza to gas. It’s amazing.
This convoy isn’t asking Ottawa for a hand-out, or a secret favour, like SNC-Lavalin.
They just want to be able to go to work, so they can provide for their families.
This is truly a convoy of unity. Rarely do you ever see such unanimous, national support for a movement here in Canada.

Published on February 21 - It was a week-long, unforgettable journey. The United We Roll convoy to Ottawa was met by thousands of Canadians along the road, and even more at impromptu rallies along the Trans Canada Highway.
The convoy has now left Ottawa, retracing their steps. They are re-visiting every community that donated food, money, and fuel, to thank them for their Canadian generosity.
Soon they will be home, proud of the miles behind them, and hopeful that the road ahead for Canada’s disenfranchised oil and gas industry will be smoother.
Published on February 20 - This convoy has fought off unfounded accusations of racism from the beginning; a Maclean's magazine editor even called it a "mobilization of white nationalists.” The truth is, this convoy is made up of a diverse group of Canadians who care about jobs, and the future of their families.
Thank you to everyone who supported our independent reporting and who shared our videos on social media. We couldn’t have brought you this story without the support of ordinary Canadians like you.
David Menzies: United We Roll vs. Antifa in Ottowa
Published on February 22 - Of course, the usual suspects of Antifa showed up to the Convoy protest in Ottowa to scream at the convoy participants. As always, I tried to get them to explain exactly what they were protesting against, but got either silence or abuse.
Published on February 19 - Jerome, a patriotic legal immigrant, speaks at the United We Roll Convoy in Ottawa about his support for pipelines and border security.
Published on February 19 - The communists from the Carleton student union have come out to protest against pro-pipeline Canadians. One student told me that the student union is using fees students to pay to fund protests, including signs featuring the Soviet hammer and sickle. Fortunately, Ontario Premier Doug Ford has introduced legislation that will cut off the revenue of student unions by making student union fees optional.
Published on February 19 - I asked Maxime Bernier how he feels about the media smearing this patriotic movement and why rallies like this are so important.
Published on February 19 - Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, speaks to members of the United We Roll Convoy in Ottawa about his plan to build pipelines across the country.
Published on February 19 - Maxime Bernier, leader of the People's Party of Canada, speaks to the United We Roll Convoy in Ottawa about how he would use the Constitution to guarantee the construction of oil pipelines across the country.
Published on February 19 - The convoy rolled into Ottawa and made their way to Parliament Hill this morning. When they did, Antifa showed up to counter-protest this patriotic, pro-pipeline gathering. Naturally, I went over to ask them what their message was, and why they came to protest. I was there for less than two minutes before they assaulted me, punched my hand sending my phone and equipment flying to the ground. I have spoken with law enforcement and will be filing a police report shortly.
Published on February 18 — On Twitter, Maclean's magazine editor Andray Domise called this pro-pipeline convoy "white nationalists."
I asked some of the hundreds of Sault Ste. Marie locals who came out to support United We Roll when we arrived in town what they thought of this smear...
Published on February 17 - Residents of Terrace Bay, Ontario provide their thoughts on the #UnitedWeRoll convoy, and the importance of the oil and gas industry.
Published on February 16 - RCMP in Manitoba chose a strange tactic to deal with the Antifa hooligans looking to stop the convoy of pro-pipeline cars and trucks on the way to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's house.
Published on February 15 - What I have found unbelievable on the first leg of this trip is the amount of support this convoy has from everyday Albertans and Saskachewaners. Many of them have been standing on the side of the road to wave signs.
This is truly a grassroots movement, one that Canada hasn't seen the likes of in a generation.
Published on February 14 - The pro-pipeline convoy is en route to Ottawa! Keean Bexte is with them, to bring you the facts the Media Party won't!
