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!
