Support Seen in Ontario for Truck Drivers Protesting Vaccine Mandate

A convoy of truck drivers crossing Canada to protest a vaccine mandate for cross-border travel was in Ontario on Thursday, January 27, as it continued towards Ottawa.

As of January 15, Canada has required truck drivers to be fully vaccinated or face a two-week quarantine period when crossing back into Canada from the US.

From January 22, the US Department of Homeland Security has required “non-US individuals” to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination when entering the country through land ports and ferry terminals at both the US-Mexico and US-Canada borders.

This footage, filmed between London and Sarnia, shows supporters of the truckers along a highway.

The convoy was expected to reach Ottawa on January 29, local media reported. Credit: Rob Sheppard via Storyful
