Thousands of people throughout the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland came out in support of truckers protesting cross-border vaccine mandates on Saturday.

Crowds of people gathered on overpasses and roadways as a truck convoy made its way from Langley west to downtown Vancouver and then east again into Chilliwack on Jan. 29.

In Chilliwack, hundreds of supporters cheered and waved Canadian flags as a long line of semi-truck drivers and other vehicles got off Highway 1 at Lickman Road, marking the end of the convoy route.

Trucks along the highway that were not part of the convoy also honked as they passed by the supporters.

The convoy was organized by Chilliwack trucker Stacey Midgely.
