People’s Convoy co-organizer: ‘We cannot have what’s happening in Canada happen here’

The People’s Convoy is working with attorneys and sweeping its donation account “a couple of times a day” to put the money in a private bank, said Maureen Steele.

People’s Convoy co-organizer Maureen Steele says truckers have been hit hard by COVID-19 mandates and the protesters “want accountability” for the government’s actions during the pandemic.

The People’s Convoy, inspired by the Canadian Freedom Convoy, plans to be in Washington, D.C., by March 5.

The truckers in the protest are looking to restore freedom and liberty, Steele told “Just the News, Not Noise” cohosts John Solomon and Amanda Head.

“We want accountability for what happened over the last two years,” said Steele, calling the pandemic’s fallout “devastating.”

Some truckers have lost their jobs due to COVID vaccine mandates, Steele reported.

“They’re still willing to go out on the road, and cross the country, for our freedom,” Steele said. “And it’s so typical of all of America, the blue-collar boys stepping up first.

Steele called the People’s Convoy a “slice of Americana,” explaining that “people from every walk of life” have joined the protest.

More than $200,000 has been raised in support of the People’s Convoy, according to its website. Steele said the group learned from the Canadian convoy and is taking precautions to ensure it can use the donations.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used the Emergencies Act to direct “banks to freeze the accounts of those involved in the convoy and cease providing financial services where the institution suspects that an account, either personal or corporate, is being used to further the protest,” as Just the News reported. Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe also froze the Canadian protest’s fundraiser.

“We’ve taken every precaution that we can to ensure that that doesn’t happen here,” Steele said.

The People’s Convoy is working with attorneys and sweeping the donation account “a couple of times a day” to put the money in a private bank, Steele said.

“We cannot have what’s happening in Canada happen here, and it absolutely could,” she said. “We need to dial [mandates] back.”

In order to fight false messaging that the media may create around the People’s Convoy, Steele said “just having cameras there” helps. 

Steele called it “amazing” that Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) plans to introduce legislation granting temporary asylum to Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers.

Steele mentioned the support she has received from the Democratic-controlled state of New Mexico. 

“Anyone that says this is a Republican movement, or it’s a political movement, this absolutely is not — this is a freedom movement,” she said. “It doesn’t matter what side of the aisle you’re on, every American can gather under the banner of freedom.” 


Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
