Ryan thought as many as a thousand trucks could join the convoy. It was impossible to count the exact number of trucks due to the sheer size of the convoy, however organizers said the turnout was much bigger than expected.

Organizers worked with Leduc County and RCMP to ensure the convoy went smoothly.

“We’re working class and we just want to go to work. We’re here to do everything as ethical and as environmentally friendly as possible,” he said.
