Protesters on Horseback Wave Trump Flag in Downtown Ottawa

Protesters opposing vaccine mandates rode on horseback while waving both Canadian and pro-Trump flags in downtown Ottawa on Saturday, February 5, as protests led by convoys of truckers continued for the second weekend in the Canadian capital.

This footage from Henry Inskip shows two protesters riding by at around 11 am Saturday. The first was carrying a Canadian flag and the second was waving a flag reading “Trump 2024: Save America.”

Inskip described the scene as “chaotic”, with cars, trucks, and tractors “blasting their horns”. Credit: Henry Inskip via Storyful
