Truckers and Yellow Vest protesters rendezvous at Calgary City Hall

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

On Saturday, I was standing in the middle of the staging yards for a Yellow Vest truckers convoy in Calgary, Alberta. After the convoy began, I raced downtown to catch their rendezvous with the Yellow Vest protests by Calgary City Hall.

This convoy, like others in the province, has been organized by grassroots Canadians. As you will see, the protestors, who were of many ethnic backgrounds, were met by a small contingent of all caucasian counter-protesters, calling the Yellow Vests bigoted xenophobes.

I chatted with some Yellow Vesters, on and off camera, trying to get an idea of what their message is.

Really what unites this convoy, these protestors, and this movement across Canada is unrest with the political establishment.

“o my truck is a 1998 Cev half ton with a 4.3 litre engine with a 90 litre tank so in France it would cost 195 dollars to fill my truck . That was never mentioned in the MSM and CBC kinda important fact "

It’s hardly a novel fact, and in fact current prices are lower than they have been five or ten years ago. The Europeans never got into the oversized land yacht habit, mostly because they don’t fit into their cities. It’s a wash if your fuel costs twice as much, but you go twice as far on it.

Scott, who is teaching who. Is Trudeau learning from Macron or is Macron learning from Trudeau. They both have the same bent and sometimes the bent is bent over.

We could have a flourishing oil and gas industry in Canada again which would lift all of the nation.

Clearly Antifa think they’re the only ones who should be allowed to protest anything. They think they should decide whether anyone else has the right to protest anything.
