(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The “United We Roll” convoy rolled into Thunder Bay late this afternoon, coming in from the west. The convoy started in Red Deer, Alberta and has been making their way to Ottawa to protest bill c-69, bill c-48 and to push for a new pipeline to be built.
A spokesperson for the movement told TRCCTB.COM that they are hopeful that Canada will stop buying oil from Saudi Arabia, where women’s rights are behind the times amongst other inhumane things. Canada has more than enough oil to supply all of Canada instead of importing oil from other countries. This would keep Canadians employed and boost our economy.
The people in the convoy were very clear that this is not a “hate group” as their counter protesters are attempting to slander the movement. They welcome people with differing opinions to join the protest and open the discussion.
The convoy was originally scheduled to just pass through Thunder Bay, with a quick stop at the Terry Fox monument to meet supports and spread the message about what they are doing. After realizing the overwhelming support from the citizens of Thunder Bay, the convoy decided to stop here and support the city, since there is a huge base of support for them.
A spokesperson from the movement made this message regarding the switch today from just stopping at Terry Fox monument to staying the night in Valhalla due to the OPP changing their plans. Terry Fox does not have enough parking.
Numerous citizens showed up with donations of food, drinks and cash to help the convoy along their journey.
The lead red truck, pictured in the main photo, was allowing members of the public to sign the hood.
The convoy is expected to leave Thunder Bay in the morning, and will be back in town for the return trip.
