Five days later, they're driving their message into the nation's capital that the federal government needs to get oil pipelines in the ground and eliminate the carbon tax.
Made up mostly of Albertans and Westerners, the convoy was created as a form of protest to federal and environmental policies. The United We Roll website lists the Holiday Inn Kanata on its convoy hotel guide.
Today, United We Roll convoyed to Ottawa, comprised of many professionals affected by the Natural Resource industry.
"Everybody's involved", said Carritt.
The United we Roll Convoy to Ottawa arrived in Arnprior, just outside of Ottawa, last night. "It doesn't matter - you can wear a yellow vest, or blue coveralls or black hardhat or suit and tie".
Organizer Jason Corbeil said demonstrations would be held on the lawn of Parliament between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, and 11 a.m. and mid-afternoon Wednesday. The blog of one of those organizers includes calls for specific politicians to be executed, refers to immigrants as "sub-human" and argues women don't belong in politics.
Corbeil said they will be parked along Wellington Street, elsewhere nearby, if parking is available, and further afield, with protesters busing in.
Evan Balgord, the executive director the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, however, is warning that the convoy is giving a platform for hate.
Counter-protests were also planned by other groups in Ottawa on Tuesday.
"A lot of people ask me, 'what's your plan as a government to get pipelines built again?' and I say there was a time when the government didn't have to build pipelines because the private sector did it with investors money".
"Conservatives support our energy sector, we want to get pipelines built again", he said.
The City of Ottawa tweeted to motorists to expect delays if heading into the downtown area because of the rally.
Demonstrators from eastern Canada are also expected to link up with the convoy.
