Polls Show Popular Support for Trucker Convoy in Canada Despite Trudeau’s Claim it Represents ‘Fringe Minority’

Multiple polls show that the massive convoy of Canadian truckers that is heading toward Ottawa, the nation’s Capital, enjoys popular support among Canadians, despite the prime minister’s claim that the protesters represent a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views.”

Up to 50,000 “freedom truckers” are descending on Ottawa this weekend to protest vaccine passports.


“In Canada we have one of the biggest revolutions happening. Right now there’s 50,000 truckers and 1.4M people headed to the parliament in Ottawa. And they’re going to stay there until Trudeau resigns, or they give us back all of our freedoms and rights,” said Canadian hockey legend Theo Fleury on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle on Tuesday.


After ignoring the massive protest for days, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finally commented on the convoy on Wednesday, calling the truckers a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views” who do not represent the way most Canadians feel.

“The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other, who know of that following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values, as a country,” Trudeau said.

However, multiple polls throughout Canada completely refute the prime minister’s claim that the truckers represent a “fringe minority.”

In his remarks, Wednesday, Trudeau also vowed that the government will continue to impose federal vaccine mandates on truckers, and Canadian travelers, insisting that mass vaccination is “the way through” the pandemic.

“We’ve been unequivocal and we were very clear in the last election, that vaccination is the way through this, whether it’s for travelers, whether it’s for federal public servants, or areas of federal jurisdiction,” Trudeau said.

Unfortunately, data from around the world, including Quebec, Canada, now clearly show that mass vaccination only exacerbates the problem.  

Law enforcement officials in Ottawa said Wednesday that they are preparing for a range of scenarios including the potential for violence.

Police said they expect “between 1,000 and 2,000 demonstrators” on Saturday, according to The Canadian Press.

There are reportedly up to 50,000 truckers in the convoy.
