Convoy mixes with white nationalists and delivers toxic message to Ottawa - 2019-02-21
Federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer welcomed a small convoy to Parliament Hill and white nationalist Faith Goldy told Indigenous rights defenders to go back where they came from as the United We Roll protest descended on Ottawa on Tuesday and Wednesday.
"After four days of cross-country driving, the convoy mustered in Arnprior, Ontario, just outside the capital but got off to a late start Tuesday morning," The Canadian Press reported. "With police escorts, its trucks, buses, and cars hit downtown Ottawa after the morning rush hour, disrupting the city only slightly."
Mixed message fly as conservative politicians support #unitedweroll convoy, @mitchellbeer writes, as opponent warns if they'd looked closely "they would've found a death threat directed towards Trudeau, they would've found examples of overt racism."
