In This Story: Freedom Convoy

A series of ongoing protests and blockades in Canada against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions, called the Freedom Convoy by organizers, broke out in early 2022. The convoy was created to protest vaccine mandates for crossing the United States border, but became a protest about COVID-19 mandates in general.

There has been a lot of interest in these protests, in particular from American and broadly right-wing or centre-right media outlets. The numbers of participants has been widely exaggerated by these outlets, while the original spike of protesters present was certainly numbered in thousands at the end of January, this number quickly dwindled to a hard core or participants numbered in hundreds, who have remained in place until the middle of February 2022.
