Truck Convoy Discussion Event 2022: Where did it come from, where is it going?

March 25th, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST via Zoom Trucker Protest in Canada

In February 2022, the normally quiet streets of Ottawa filled with trucks and non-stop honking. In this discussion, we ask: where did this convoy come from? Why did it play out the way it did? Why did it take such a long time to resolve? And where more politically than physically, is the convoy going next? Join us for a conversation with investigative reporter Justin Ling and Professor Amarnath Amarasingam for a discussion of the truck convoy, including questions about extremist social movements, police responses to the protest, and what the convoy means for the future of Canadian politics.
