Alberta Towing Companies Refuse to Help Police at Montana Border Blockade

As the Candian ‘Freedom Convoy’ continues doing the Lord’s Work by occupying the capital city in Ottawa, dragging a protest into its second week that has been unprecedented in the nation’s history, our neighbor province to the North has been doing their own part from afar.

They’ve been having their own protest for a week now, with local towing companies refusing requests from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to supply them with tow-trucks to the Canada/ USA port of entry, where a blockade has been set up in the city of Coutts, directly across the border from the community of Sweet Grass.

The RCMP have been contacting towing companies from as far as 200 miles away to come down to the border and remove some of these trucks, which has been protesting the province’s vaccine mandates, loss of freedom, and debilitating government pandemic policies in solidarity with the Ottawa protesters, but no companies are willing to lend aid.

The Western Standard spoke to several companies who indicated they’re not willing to help the government at the expense of ruing their reputation in their community.

“According to local towing companies, requests have come in since Sunday for trucks to assist RCMP should they look to haul away trucks and other vehicles participating in the border blockade.

The Western Standard spoke with a number of tow truck companies in southern Alberta including in Calgary and Lethbridge.

City Wide towing in Calgary said they had tow trucks at the blockade yesterday to help support anyone in need, but confirmed no trucks stayed on scene.

“Our trucks won’t be heading outside of Calgary today,” said a call centre employee at City Wide who did not want to give her name.

“We will be remaining in Calgary to service the surrounding area.”

TnT Towing in Lethbridge is one of the largest towing companies in the area. When contacted, the person who answered the phone said they had no comment but did indicate they had been contacted.

“We don’t know who it was that called, but we don’t want to get involved so we won’t be commenting.”


The Alberta truckers who have been occupying their big rigs indicated yesterday that they were perhaps intending on shifting their location, wanting to continue to do their part without hurting the community, but vowed to stick to it after infamous pastor Artur Pawlowski came and met with them, convincing them their current blockade was positioned to be the most effective. They have agreed to remain for now but would be making a brief slow-roll excursion up to Edmonton for the weekend in order to continue to apply pressure to the provincial government.
