United We Roll Convoy enabled Yellow Vests in Canada - 2019-04-14
In February I wrote here about the United We Roll Convoy, which was on its way from Alberta to Ottawa. Those involved said their concerns were primarily about the oil and gas industry. However, it soon became clear that the tour was about more than that. At every convoy stop there was also a focus on immigration and refugees, Canadian sovereignty and the role of the United Nations.
Pipelines and borders
Glen Carritt of Innisfail, Alberta, was the self-described "lead liaison" as well as the "face and voice" of the convoy. On their website, Carritt is quoted as saying: "We are in favour of pipelines to move our products in the oil and gas sector to the rest of Canada as well as the rest of the world. We are opposed to the current format of the carbon tax as well as the UN impact on Canadian borders."
