Travel Blocked On Both Sides Of Border.

UPDATE: Farmers Blockade Coutts Border Crossing, Plan To Stay Until Vax Mandates Lifted

Travel has been completely blocked on both sides of the border. Semi-trucks have been parked in both lanes approaching the border on either side.

More than a thousand Albertans in hundreds of trucks and vehicles have descended on Alberta’s Coutts border and have stopped all cross-border travel.

Travel has been completely blocked on both sides of the border. Semi-trucks have been parked in both lanes approaching the border on either side.

The Western Standard‘s James Finkbeiner is at the Coutts border and said a line-up of trucks stretches “at least 18-km from the border” on the Alberta side.

“Nothing is moving on either side of the border. They have blocked the shoulders now in both directions, too. You can’t get by at all now,” said Finkbeiner. 

RCMP officials say the blockade has cut off the border town of Coutts and they have pleaded with truckers to open access.

“The RCMP’s goal is that traffic flow remain open in at least one lane in each direction to allow for emergency response, flow of traffic for area residents, employment travel and to permit movement of lawful traffic across the border,” said the RCMP.

“Emergency response agencies will assist the AB RCMP with movement of vehicles or traffic flow in this event to support a peaceful and lawful assembly to prevent full blockage or situations where participants or the public being placed in an unsafe situation.”

“Right now, the RCMP have said they arent’ doing anything as long as everything stays peaceful,” said Finkbeiner
