What issue would motivate you to roll the tractor to Parliament Hill?

by

Have you ever attended a protest? Would you?

If you’ve ever had a chance to tour downtown Ottawa, you’ll know that peaceful protests on Parliament Hill are a daily expectation. At any one time, there could be two or three or more groups on the Hill holding signs and trying to bring awareness to a particular issue.

In recent years, we’ve also seen a much larger-scale protest — when the anti-lockdown convoy rolled on to Wellington Ave in front of Parliament and stayed for weeks in early 2022.

More recently, there have been several protests happening in Europe and England led by a surprising demographic: farmers. The reasons for the protest range from grain being dumped onto local markets, the EU’s Farm to Fork legislation, and so-called unfair trade.

At the heart, many of the farmers feel they’ve been ignored or are being put at a far enough disadvantage that they’re willing to take manure and tractors to the street in protest — which begs the question, what issue do you feel strongly enough about to participate in a tractor roll-out to Parliament Hill?
