Two protest convoys were headed to Ottawa to raise awareness on Alberta’s plight. Now, one has hit the brakes

One of two duelling convoys that had been planning separate odysseys to Ottawa to raise awareness about Alberta’s economic woes has parked its plans, saying it’s no longer viable.

A schism between the two groups arose earlier this month, after Canada Action — which was planning the now-cancelled Resource Coalition Convoy to Ottawa — said they wouldn’t join forces with the Yellow Vest (official) Convoy to Ottawa, citing concerns about what an organizer called the “very extreme opinions” of some of the movement’s adherents.
