As the first vehicles from the trucker convoy started appearing on Ottawa streets, some Twitter users shared a particular photo: a pickup truck with a confederate flag flying from the bed.

Now, as the convoy descends on Ottawa with the stated aim of opposing all COVID-19 mandates, anti-hate experts allege those with white nationalist and Islamophobic views don't just represent the fringes of the movement but are among the organizers of the convoy.

"We're saying that this is a far-right convoy because — from day one — the organizers themselves are part of the far-right movement," said Evan Balgord, executive director of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network.
