Conservative leadership candidate Peter MacKay is facing some online backlash and general confusion after deleting a tweet supporting fed-up Albertans who tore down a blockade set up by anti-pipeline protestors on an Edmonton railway.

“Glad to see a couple Albertans with a pickup truck can do more for our economy in an afternoon than Justin Trudeau could do in four years,” the tweet read.

The now-deleted tweet referenced a viral confrontation between protestors and counter-protestors which stopped a train in its tracks earlier that day.

Global TV’s Nicole Stillger tweeted “Counter-protestors hauling away the blockade and loading it into this truck.”

There are more and more instances of everyday Canadians confronting blockades throughout Canada.

Earlier today, a Quebec man confronted a group of protestors at a scene which was described as “carnival-like.”

“You are blocking billions of dollars from our economy. A thousand people have just lost their jobs. I don’t care about Legault and Trudeau, what I want is that you leave here safely, that’s all,” said David Skitt to protestors, translated from French.

CN confirmed that it has obtained an injunction to clear blockades on their Saint-Lambert railways.
