Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Valentines day is going to be a bit sweeter for those opposing Canada's Liberal party.
The "United We Roll Convoy for Canada" will commence in Red Deer, Alberta at 6 a.m. MST on February 14th, 2019.
1500 participants are expected to start the trek eastward toward Ottawa.
The event is in protest of the Liberal Party's decisions and issues which they feel adversely affect all Canadians.
The convoy will grow in size along the way as more trucks are added.

4 - Stop Bill C-69 (Future Pipelines)
5 - Protection of our Canadian Sovereignty (NO "UN" Global Compact for migration
