United We Roll: Pro-pipeline convoy makes first stop for the night on the way to Ottawa

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

It was a late night in Regina, Saskatchewan where the pro-pipeline “yellow vest" protest convoy headed for Ottawa made its first stop for the night.

It's been a high energy convoy the whole way. At this pit stop, I chatted with some real Albertans about what they hope to gain from this movement.

At the outset of the convoy, the RCMP counted 160 trucks heading to Calgary. They lost a few vehicles at the Alberta border, but have gained some more since.

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.

I'm going to keep sharing updates like this daily. You can keep up with the convoy LIVE by following me in on Twitter @3conomic, and catch my daily full length video updates at RebelConvoy.com. PS: If you want to help cover the costs of the trip, you can pitch in there. We’d appreciate it!

Of course Baby Doc Trudeau will find someone to blame other than himself or the government he supposedly leads (Gerald Butts would get a laugh out of that), Maybe “Jody”, the former Justice Minister. Maybe The Rebel. Maybe Ford. Maybe the Far-Right. Maybe activists or “those who wish to disrupt our society”. Maybe Scheer – well, he could try and if he did, Scheer would be red faced and stamping his foot. Maybe all of the above. But never blame the Liberals and their obviously failed government.

Have you noticed the increase in taxpayer paid ads by the government telling us how well the country is doing, how good our government is to us, and how the “Action Plan” on this or that (oil?) is working. Of course the buying off the press and making certain that the CBC knows its marching orders, he now quickly plans to oversee election advertising and what is “fake news”. The CRTC, out of the blue, wants to regulate the Internet. Quietly, new firearm restrictions are coming in. This is how the dictatorship of Canada will begin: a defenceless population with media and information restrictions. We will be another poor socialist country, broken to the quick.

Remember, Justin inherited his mother’s brains and Fidel’s looks and politics.

“No one cares if Government Employees in Ottawa are late or don’t show up for work. "

Not quite, RON. Politicians care because it’s bad press.

And that’s the value of a large, sustained protest. It becomes THE news story day after day. To a politician, it’s like the toothache from hell that just doesn’t go away.

No one cares if Government Employees in Ottawa are late or don’t show up for work. The work not done will give them something to do the next workday.

Jamie I agree
Cause as much trouble in that cesspool as possible
If Mohammad Trudeau wants a fight with the West we will bring it to him

I hope there’s 16,000 by the time they hit Ottawa just before the start of rush hour. Crawl in to downtown Ottawa in Bull Low on both ends of the Queensway, 416, Hwy 31, Hwy 17 (174). And plug up the Hull-Ottawa bridges too.

And plug up the city for a week or ten….for as long as it takes.
