Some Montrealers also came out in support of Quebec truckers joining the protest on Friday.

With truckers from the Atlantic provinces, Quebec and southeastern Ontario joining the group of 113 trucks that rolled in from B.C. and the Prairies, the trucker convoy arrived in Ottawa on Friday afternoon. What began as a protest movement against vaccine mandates for truckers that cross the American border has grown to include truckers and other protesters espousing anti-mask, anti-vaccine-passport and anti-lockdown views.

The official protest is due to take place in front of Parliament on Saturday.
