We’ve ALL had ENOUGH! | Interview with Brigette Belton, Convoy Trucker
Brigette Belton is a seasoned truck driver who has been crossing the border, hauling goods to stock our shelves for over 5 years. She speaks to Will about her role in the nationwide convoy by truckers in response to Trudeau’s cross-border truck driver vax mandate.
On how Brigette came to be a part of convoy…
"Basically, it started with me just being upset; one little girl in a little red truck. Then because I was in Facebook jail for 33 days, I learned how to start using TikTok. I started going to truck drivers on there and I found this great guy named Chris and he was upset too. I just kept asking him “Convoy 2022”? And I'd go to all the other truckers and I just kept doing that in the hopes that somebody would listen so that I could treat the government the same way the government [has] treated truck drivers…held us hostage, left us sitting on bridges and highways with no bathroom, no food, no water. They didn't care about us. t's definitely not about everybody's safety, just certain people's safety."
On the convoy planned for next week (January 29th, 2022)…
Now, this is not [a] demonstration, this slow roll. It's not just open to truckers. Any member of the public can come out and support. It's about everybody. It's about Canada and here's the thing I'd like to thank Doug Ford for, yeah, we're finally all in this together because…This stuff needs to end now. [This convoy] is gonna slow down everything for sure…we are following our rules given to us by OPP and we are doing this peacefully as number one. We're not there to cause trouble. We're there to get a voice and a message out. And that's what we are doing. And we will do that safely as truck drivers always do. We save lives every day on the road to those that don't know how to drive around us.
