News of the protest convoy in Canada has captured national and international headlines over the past few weeks. The demonstration began as a protest against the federal government’s obligation for truck drivers to vaccinate the COVID-19 vaccine across the Canadian-US border. However, the movement grew as it attracted supporters who opposed the various COVID-19 obligations and restrictions imposed by the government.
The first convoy left the west coast on January 23, joined by other convoys from different parts of the country, and rallyed in Ottawa on January 29. ..

The Innovative Research Group conducted an online survey using a randomized sample of 635 Canadians who are members of the National Survey Panel and additional respondents from Dynata, a leading provider of online samples. Margins cannot be calculated because the sample is one of the more representative types rather than a random probability base.
