"At the end of the day there's one highway and we want to make sure that our movement is peaceful and that we allow for vehicles, like the working-class person to make sure they're getting to work, and we don't want to disrupt anybody's life because of this other than when we get to Ottawa."

But, Canada Action wants to make it clear that they have no affiliation with the yellow vests, saying they don't want their pro-pipeline message to stray from its target.

"They've assured us that they're very much focused on energy and resources and pipelines, and I've just expressed to them that … for me personally I just look at the yellow vests as being a French thing from France. And I think we should stay focused on Canadian symbols," said Cody Battershill, the organization's founder.
