THUNDER BAY – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is warning motorists to be aware of potential traffic delays in the coming days. A convoy of transport trucks calling their event the “United We Roll Truck Convoy” is expected to travel through the province beginning Feb. 16 with a destination of Ottawa on February, 18, 2019.
The trucks are a part of a protest against the Liberal government over the pipelines and lack of support claimed by the organizers to make Alberta’s economy boom again.
Protest activities may periodically delay or interrupt the normal flow of traffic on area highways and arterial roads. The OPP is working with those involved to minimize the impact on the travelling public and to ensure order and public safety.
The OPP’s objective is to maintain the safe flow of traffic and, when delays occur, restore traffic flow in the safest manner possible.
