Planned in support of the Ottawa trucker protest, over 100 truckers blocked the Alberta-Montana border for a third day. They’ve been threatened with police action but voted to stay.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney tweeted a statement with a comment: The blockade of the Coutts border crossing violates the Alberta Traffic Safety Act. It is causing significant inconvenience for lawful motorists and could dangerously impede movement of emergency service vehicles. This blockade must end.

Police and tow trucks descended on the scene today.

Blockaders opened up one lane of traffic to allow locals, school buses and emergency vehicles access to the border.

They said the only way they’re leaving is in a cruiser. They faced fines $10,000 for a first offense or $25,000, as well as jail time.

However, police have since said that they could stay if they opened up one lane.

A video on a site called Redstate Nation shows people putting nails on the road to Ottawa to stop the truckers. They could kill people.
