Bob Zimmer MP comments on the United We Roll Convoy

OTTAWA, ONT – The United We Roll Convoy has arrived at their final destination at Parliament Hill and Bob Zimmer was in attendance.

The Convoy made up of workers and supporters of the oil and gas industry left from Red Deer, Alberta heading to Ottawa to express their concern for the industry.

Bob Zimmer posted a video to his FB Page titled; ‘ Awesome show of support for our energy workers and industry with the truck convoy today! #UnitedWeRoll #UnitedWeRollConvoy

Zimmer says,” A whole bunch of people from Western Canada that want to get our resources to market”

“My comments were that we should be thanking all the oil and gas folks for keeping us warm in the winter, the fuel that flies our planes back and forth from Ottawa comes from the Kinder Morgan Pipeline,” said Zimmer

“Wanted to say, show your support to all these folks out here, great to see so many. They have the road completely blocked off with all the trucks. It is good to see. Great show of support, we need to keep the pressure for the Trudeau government that we will actually get our resources to market.” continued Zimmer

“It’s pretty sad that we are a world leader in energy, at least we were until the policies over-regulation are doing their very best, Trudeau is doing his best to shut it down, thanks for coming out and all that came from FSJ, I recognized a few when I was speaking,” said Zimmer, “Keep up the good work”
