RCMP say a second blockade on a highway leading to the main United States border crossing in Alberta has choked off traffic.
The new blockade is about 18 kilometres north of Coutts and, although numbers have decreased since Wednesday night, there was still a large presence Thursday morning with semi-trailers, heavy equipment and trucks blocking access.
Vehicles flying Canadian flags and signs saying “we want freedom” moved up and down the highway north of the blockade with horns blaring.
Protesters agreed Wednesday to open a lane on each side of the highway at the crossing in Coutts, Alta., where there has been a blockade since Saturday. But since then, there has been no stream of vehicles crossing the border.
