Truckers and Farmers Shut Down Another U.S.-Canada Border Crossing

Emerson, MB — A group of truckers and farmers have shut down another border crossing as protests throughout Canada continue.

On Wednesday night, a blockade involving approximately 50 vehicles including big rigs, tractors, and other heavy machinery resulted in the closure of the Emerson, MB-Pembina, ND, border crossing on Highway 75.




 

“A demonstration involving a large number of vehicles & farm equipment is blocking the Emerson Port of Entry,” the RCMP said on Thursday. “No traffic is getting through either northbound or southbound. The Port of Entry is shut down.”

An RCMP spokesperson told Transportation Nation Network (TNN) negotiations with protesters remain ongoing.

Here’s a look at the scene from last night.





Slow roll protests at the Emerson-Pembina border crossing have been ongoing since last month, but never resulted in a complete shut down.




 

Similar blockades are also ongoing at the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, MI-Windsor, ON, and the border crossing between Sweetgrass, MT, and Coutts, AB.
