Protesters have been at the Pacific Highway Border Crossing for the past several days. It comes after two weeks of convoys from Langley driving to downtown Vancouver. RCMP are on scene and working to disperse the crowd. Click here to read the entire story at Surrey Now-Leader.


Looking at traffic cameras on the US side of the border, there were no visible impacts as of 2pm inasmuch as there was very little traffic.

    yes – amazing how a police state can creep on you. If you let it…

    Sure, it’s a peaceful protest unless they unlawfully blockade an international border, then they are no longer protesters and should be treated as criminals. As soon as they start breaking laws, law enforcement needs to come down on them like bricks to help remind people of the difference between peaceful activity and unlawful activity.

    Why do they call them the freedom convoy? They are only interested in what they want, not people in general. Not very freedom-minded at all.

    The privileged son of a Prime Minister Prime Minister simply needed to get off his high horse and talk to the peaceful protesters (aka his constituents) and their protest would have ended weeks ago. Ego and emotion ahead of thoughtfulness, unfortunately a common issue these days.
