All traffic now blocked at Alberta’s Coutts border crossing, says RCMP tweet

Anti-vaccine mandate protesters are once again preventing site visitors from passing during the Coutts border crossing in southern Alberta.

Alberta RCMP tweeted late Monday night time that both north and southbound lanes at the crossing on Freeway 4 had been blocked via the demonstration and asked motorists to bypass the realm.

Vehicles and different automobiles began parking on the freeway near Coutts closing month in cohesion with identical protests in Ottawa and around the country over COVID-19 vaccine mandates for pass-border truck drivers and broader public well being measures.

One blockade, which stranded guests and truckers for days, turned into two when a 2nd one appeared further up the freeway.

The deadlock stranded guests and cross-border truckers for days, compromised millions of greenbacks in trade and impeded get entry to to basic goods and clinical services for area citizens.

Ultimate week, protesters agreed to open a single lane in each path for site visitors and so truckers may haul cargo across the border.
