Canada's Yellow Vests Are Importing Tea Party-Style Hate - 2019-02-26
Reading only mainstream media coverage of the Yellow Vests "United We Roll" convoy would give anyone the impression that the February 19th protest in Ottawa was a mass gathering of blue-collar workers fed up with government mismanagement of the economy.
The reality is quite different.
The Yellow Vest protest was no mass gathering, involving only approximately 150 protestors gathered on Parliament Hill. Nor was it a protest driven by economic concerns. The animating force of the group appears to be fear of immigration, xenophobia, and rage against Prime Minister Trudeau.
