Truckers in the Canadian Freedom Convoy are lauding the efforts of their fellow citizens and protesters on the ground in Ottawa, who are helping with food, gas, and rides.
Fox News’s John Michael Raasch has been in Ottawa covering the protest and caught up with a few truckers who detailed the tremendous support they are receiving from their fellow citizens.

“The support has been incredible,” he added. “I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve never been more proud to be Canadian.”
