#756 “How I Ended Up Supporting The Convoy”
There's a lot of chaos and division in Canada right now. In this episode, it's back to the basics: having conversations.
There’s a lot of chaos and division in Canada right now. Beyond the people who got arrested in Ottawa over the past few days, there are thousands more Canadians who have financially supported the Freedom Convoy or been rooting for them from afar.
In this episode, the CANADALAND team reaches out to regular everyday people who support the Convoy to ask about who they are, how they ended up supporting the Convoy and what they think about the racist and dangerous aspects of the movement.
This is not a scientific survey, we did not do a poll. These three people are not necessarily representative of everybody else who supports this movement, but we’ve got to start somewhere.
