Conservative MPs are stoking the anti-vaccination fire by voicing support for a convoy of truckers driving across Canada to converge on Parliament Hill.

Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole refuses to say whether he supports the convoy, but his MPs have no such qualms: at least four — including former party leader Andrew Scheer — have tweeted their support for the truckers.

Participating truckers want to show their opposition to COVID-19 vaccine mandates, which prevent them from crossing the border, and plan to take their protest to Parliament Hill at noon Saturday, according to a countdown clock from the anti-public-health-mandate group Canada Unity, which is organizing the event.
