Comment on the convoy to Ottawa

Op Ed by Helge Nome

I was involved with the Yellow Vest movement before the pandemic and a convoy to Ottawa was organized where a number of people with "yellow vest" sentiments were engaged.
The general thrust of that convoy was against perceived federal government overreach into provincial matters and the stifling of our energy industry based on political ideology from Ottawa.
I believe this new convoy is based on similar sentiments with anti-compulsory-vaxxing sitting in the front seat, as the energy sector is rebounding at present.
This time a lot of anti government sentiments have been stirred up by the pandemic which is now in its end stages.
So, I am expecting a lot of public support to be expressed for the convoy providing extreme elements are prevented from taking over the show.
