Created December 19, 2018
Justin Trudeau and his liberal's won't understand the needs of Western Canada until there are 700+ trucks on his doorstep. This go-fund-me is to raise money for fuel and Expenses to send a convoy of oil rig trucks and other vehicles from 3 provinces to be launched from Red Deer, Alberta to Ottawa for a rally on the doorsteps of Parliament.

The Rally/Convoy date has now been set for launch on FEB 14th, 2019. Each truck owner will receive assistance, where requested, towards the cost of fuel and expenses to drive from BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan to Ottawa. It is expected that hundreds of trucks and personal vehicles will join the convoy along the way . Applications for funding for fuel costs have been posted on our FB page or are available from one of our FB organizers and coordinators. Application and Registration forms posted via various Convoy-to-Ottawa groups and pages on Facebook. The convoy is expected to reach Ottawa on either Feb 19th to Feb 23rd depending on weather and road conditions.

A 12 person Admin panel with certified accountants has been set up oversee organizing, strategy and disbursement of fuel cards. For more updates by the minute go to our Facebook group: Convoy-to-Ottawa event.

Our goal is to put Western Canada's oil field workers back to work, End the dependency on foreign oil and stop shipments from Saudi Arabia, End the carbon tax, See pipelines approved and built and a host of other issues voiced by Canadians. The ultimate goal is to have Justin Trudeau resign and let someone Lead Canada that can make Canada a country to be proud of. 

There are also plans in the works to have a convoy from Eastern Canada meet up with the one leaving Western Canada on Feb 14th. This is being organized by a team in Eastern Canada.

A second convoy is now in the planning phases for April 15th and another one in June. These are being organized outside of our group of organizers but have been collaborating and we fully support each other.   Check back often for posted updates or join our FB group by going to Facebook groups/2099160247040841/ and request membership. We also try to post several updates via this Go Fund Me [see updates tab] page several times a day so please check back often.

We are also in FULL SUPPORT OF ALL CANADIANS AFFECTED BY TRUDEAU'S POLICIES.

We have tried for 3 weeks to set up some form of collaboration and have been met with rude comments and phone calls from their organizer Nicole . We have had a few people donate to this campaign then ask for refunds thinking we were affiliated WE ARE NOT. In the end, we are all fighting for the same results and the truck drivers from both convoys decide who they have their morning coffee with. There has also been some confusion over why we run TWO go fund me campaigns.

There seems to be some confusion in the media. Rally4resources (Who we are not connected to) has just posted the following announcement of the cancellation of their convoy (PLEASE NOTE: YVC CONVOY TO OTTAWA IS GROWING AND SCHEDULED TO LEAVE RED DEER ON FEB 14th at NOON:

January 14, 2019

Resource Coalition Convoy Cancellation

We would like to recognize the overwhelming support and courage that so many Canadians from coast to coast have expressed in their desire to participate in the Resource Coalition Convoy to Ottawa.
This event was planned in response to the overwhelming momentum that’s been building from our resource rallies. Unfortunately, we have come to the decision that it is no longer viable to proceed with our planned convoy. We cannot confidently mitigate the unexpected challenges associated with this event. As such, we will be issuing full refunds to all of our donors. We greatly appreciate your support.
GoFundMe has advised us that donors will receive a full refund in 3-7 business days. Those who donated through the website will be contacted and fully refunded. While we are disappointed that we cannot proceed, we would like to assure our supporters that we are committed to advocating for our natural resource sector, and our national economy.
Please continue to Take Action to get our economy back on track. We need your help and support in order to make continued progress. The Resource Coalition has a number of exciting events planned for 2019. We look forward to promoting Canada’s valuable natural resources side-by-side with our supporters. Thank you for all you do in support of Canada’s Resource sector.
All questions may be directed to James by email at convoy@canadaaction.ca or by phone at *** *** ****

YELLOW VEST CONVOY TO OTTAWA is still active and growing and the convoy for Feb 14th from Red Deer to Ottawa is now stronger than ever and in closing we wish R4r and Canada Action the best of luck.

We have tried for 4 weeks to coordinate our efforts with R4R with no success. Executive duties for Convoy to Ottawa have been transferred to Glen Carritt who now leads the team. Funding has been transferred to Glen as well as all admin and executive duties. The convoy date has changed to Feb 14th at the request of the city of Red Deer so it doesn't conflict with another event. There are now over 300 trucks slated to attend the convoy with additional vehicles joining the convoy along the way. RCMP and Parliament Security have agreed to coordinate their efforts to stop any violence as its estimated as many 100,000 people could be attending the arrival of the convoy in Ottawa. Details of the route and event coordination when the convoy reaches Ottawa are being worked out by Glen's team and members who reside in Ottawa. My name is only on this go fund me campaign as the creator and no longer have any control over the development of the convoy. Glen has worked tirelessly on this campaign and has done well over 20 interviews with various media outlets including CTV, Calgary and Edmonton newspaper publications. Please keep donating to this campaign as we are far from the goal to fuel over 300 trucks. Peggy-Lee Glenn is in charge of truck registrations and general inquiries can be sent to the appropriate email addresses listed on the Convoy to Ottawa Facebook Group.
