A nation-wide network of right wing Christian Evangelical pastors have been participating in the convoy occupation of Ottawa and border blockades in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.

The pastors, many of whom were previously fined for holding church services in contravention of public health orders, are part of a group called Liberty Coalition Canada.

The LCC was founded in January 2021 to oppose COVID-19 restrictions on churches but has since launched campaigns to oppose vaccine mandates and capacity limits in workplaces, schools and universities.

On February 16, the LCC wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemning his use of the Emergency Powers Act in response to the far right convoy's three week occupation of Ottawa, telling Trudeau they are "concerned" he does "not appreciate the significance of God's wrath upon a rebellious and lawless nation."
