to pass through
Times Editor

Burning business idea The Yellow Vest Convoy is heading to Ottawa, and
will be passing through Strathmore on Thursday, Feb.
Page 13 According to convoy manager Glen Carritt, it is
hoped the convoy will create awareness for the oil
and gas industry.
“The convoy is meant to create attention, to get
people onboard and unite Canada,” said Glen Carritt.
“But it’s not just oil and gas. It’s everybody that’s af-
fected by today’s current governments.”
Carritt said the group wants a repeal of bill C48 (Oil
Tanker Moratorium Act: An Act respecting the regu-
lation of vessels that transport crude oil or persistent
Rings fly oil to or from ports or marine installations located
along British Columbia’s north coast); and a repeal of
bill C69 (An Act to enact the Impact Assessment Act
and the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, to amend the
Navigation Protection Act and to make consequential

On Feb. 14, the convoy will gather in Red Deer at
8 a.m., and after a few ceremonies will proceed on
Highway 2 southbound. At Calgary, they will turn east
onto Highway 1, and expect to be passing through
Strathmore between 11 a.m. and noon.
“We’re hoping for 400 or 500 trucks leaving Red
Deer,” said Carritt. “And we’re hoping some join in
from Strathmore and Medicine Hat and other points
along the way.”
