The large Feb. 6 convoy of Alaskan truckers and their supporters made national news when Fox News picked up the story.
On Feb. 7, Fox published an article detailing the Anchorage to Eagle River convoy which also included participants from the Kenai Peninsula and Mat-Su areas who joined the rolling rally down the Glen Highway to show support for Canadian truckers and others suffering under oppressive Covid mandates.
The Fox article included video clips from the protest including a post from U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka who took part in the convoy. Fox also mentioned the Fairbanks rally that took place on the same day, as well as the Jan. 29 rally in Juneau.
“A truckers’ convoy traveled across Alaska on Sunday to show support for the Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’ that’s been protesting in the country’s capital of Ottawa for nearly two weeks straight,” Fox reported. “The event in Alaska came the same day Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson declared a state of emergency Sunday afternoon as approximately 500 trucks and vehicles with the ‘Freedom Convoy’ continued to linger outside Canadian Parliament.”
