Tesla CEO Elon Musk, podcast host Joe Rogan, and psychology professor Jordan Peterson were among those who recently endorsed the “Freedom Convoy” — a group of Canadian truckers organizing against the nation’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates. 

For the Canadian trucking industry, the policy forces unvaccinated drivers to observe a two-week quarantine and COVID-19 test before crossing into Canada from the United States.

As news of the protest made international headlines, Musk expressed approval in a three-word tweet: “Canadian truckers rule.”

Meanwhile, Rogan highlighted the convoy and noted that Canada is “in revolt.”

Peterson — a Canadian — has repeatedly discussed the protest on his Twitter page. In one post, he categorized The Toronto Star’s assertion that the truckers are “flirting with extremists” as laughable.

“flirting with extremists”. Extremists. In Canada. “Extremist Canadians.” It is to laugh. https://t.co/gG8zw8pZLp https://t.co/IMOhSBaKzw

In another post, he tagged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to refute his remarks that only a few “extremist” Canadians with “unacceptable” views were participating in the convoy.

During an interview with Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham, former NHL player and two-time Olympic gold medalist Theo Fleury also addressed Trudeau’s response. “Right now in Canada, we have one of the biggest revolutions happening,” he commented. “There’s 50,000 truckers and about 1.4 million people headed to the parliament in Ottawa. And they’re going to stay there until Trudeau resigns.”
