Alberta truckers are planning a convoy through the streets of Nisku, Alta. on Wednesday to show support for the oil and gas industry.
The convoy will coincide with a mini town hall meeting hosted by federal Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer.
Scheer, leader of the Official Opposition, will speak at Ensign Drilling in Nisku at 12:30 p.m. at an event hosted by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors.
Truckers for Pipelines is organizing a convoy that will take vehicles to that meeting and is encouraging trucks of all shapes and sizes to “come out to show support for the Canadian oil and gas industry and Canadian families from coast to coast.”
Organizers are expecting hundreds of vehicles from central Alberta and the Edmonton area to be part of the event.
A similar rally in Grande Prairie on Sunday attracted about 1,500 people and a convoy of more than 600 vehicles.
A second town hall session with Scheer is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Edmonton Inn.
