Convoy 2019
We are an organized group that are organizing a rally from Red Deer Alberta. We have a convoy of trucks making the trip to create awareness for the oil and gas industry.
I am Glen Carritt from Innisfail Alberta, Canada. I own and operate a fire and medical safety service company in Alberta, BC, Saskatechwan and Manitoba. I am raising funds for the Yellow vest (official) Convoy to Ottawa. This is a convoy traveling from all across Canada and uniting in Ottawa. The purpose is to show our concern to the current government that we oppose bill C48 and C69. We are in favour of pipelines to move our products in the oil and gas sector to the rest of Canada as well as the rest of the world. We are apposed to the current format of the carbon tax as well as the UN impact on Canadian boarders. 
The funds raised will be used for fuel and incidentals, for vehicles traveling to Ottawa as well as meeting places at various stops on the route. . These funds will be distributed  to fuel trucks and mechanics that will be traveling with the convoy via e transfers or via fuel cards. Funds for meeting places will be paid directly to the managers of the meeting places via e transfers. 
Thank you for your support,
Glen Carritt

Justin Trudeau and his liberal's won't understand the needs of Western Canada until there are 3700+ 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 15th, 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 15th. 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.
