Re: Road rage rolls out of the West; Truck con­voy head­ing to na­tion’s cap­i­tal to send a pro-en­ergy mes­sage, Opin­ion, Feb. 16

This mass truck car­a­van ar­riv­ing in Ot­tawa was a waste of time and money. I know the truck­ers are protest­ing the car­bon tax but at the same time they are con­tribut­ing to it by hav­ing to gas up on the way to Ot­tawa. They man­aged to spew pol­lu­tion into the air all across the coun­try, not to men­tion wear and tear on our high­ways, pos­si­ble ac­ci­dents with the heavy snow on roads and the waste of diesel.I would like to have seen them do­nate their diesel and gas money to the home­less or women’s shel­ter, some who are pro­tect­ing their chil­dren from this re­cent deep freeze.Now they have to turn around and do it all over again. In­sane.Sally Roenisch, Cal­gary
