As millions of Canadians celebrate the Freedom Convoy from coast-to-coast, one Globe and Mail reporter says she feels "triggered" by the sight of Canadian flags. Marsha Lederman is the Western Arts Correspondent for The Globe and Mail.

"On the highway today I drove by a bunch of those protestors and their offensive signs," said Lederman. "And something happened: I had the weird sensation of being triggered by the sight of Canadian flags. It was just awful."

Lederman's comments are made as Canadian truckers made their way to Ottawa on Saturday for a planned protest in which they have stated their intention to "gridlock" the city until the Trudeau government lifts vaccine mandate requirements for the trucking industry.

Footage shot by The Post Millennial's Beth Baisch in Ottawa on Saturday shows blocks and blocks of trucks lining the streets. Protestors are marching through sub zero temperatures to express their anger at the Trudeau government.

Trucks stretched for several blocks as protestors continued to gather at Parliament Hill. Protestors brought signs, music, and an incredible cacophony of honking horns as they stood bundled in the snow against the cold.

The Post Millennial secured an exclusive interview with Indigenous activists who are participating in the convoy. "I'm a 60 year-old grandmother. I have two beautiful grandchildren and this is not the Canada I want to leave with them," said Linda Audette, an Indigenous woman from Sudbury, Ontario.

"We all let them do this to us. Do not leave this for your children, your grandchildren and your great grandchildren. We have to stand up, take off those diapers off everybody's face. We have to stop vaccinating our children. We have to end all these mandates," Audette continued to express during the interview.
