Freedom convoy 2022 protests against Covid -19 in Canada, in this protest the truck convoys covered on Ottawa on January 29, 2022, and is still continued i.e. in February. This demonstration was against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mandates for vaccines.

Fact Check:

Canadian armed forces are the largest of the three elements. Canada is ranked 23 of 140 out of the countries considered for the annual GFP review.

Through research, we landed on a piece of information from the National Post where they proved it through the maths to simplify this news and make their readers understand the ongoing situation of the protest.

They say “ a look at math shows that 50,000 trucks would be so unprecedentedly, massive that it would be currently be lined up bumper to bumper across swaths of Ontario and Quebec.”

On the other hand a tweet by David Akin, a chief political correspondent. Twitted on Twitter about the number of vehicles. which are 113 commercial vehicles and 276 personal vehicles (SUV  pickups, and cars).

Conclusion:-

The news of 50,000 convoy trucks is misleading as there are a lot of trucks in freedom convoy 2022 but not as many as 50,000.

Claim Review: “Freedom Convoy 2022” claiming to have 50,000 trucks.

Claimed by:  social media users.

Fact check: Misleading.
