‘We’ve been treated unfairly’: Truck convoy sets off from Alberta to protest Ottawa’s oil and gas policies

Convoy participants and their supporters gathered before dawn, with the temperature sitting at about -25 C. Their vehicles were dressed up in banners denouncing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and many of his government’s policies.

They want to show their opposition to the federal carbon tax and Bill C-69, federal legislation that would change the way energy projects are reviewed, as well as a host of other policies they believe are adding to the economic pain that first hit Alberta when the price of oil plummeted four years ago.

The United We Roll protest comes as lawyers for the federal government and its supporters make their case today in a Regina court on why they believe Ottawa has the legal power to impose a carbon tax on Saskatchewan.
