Police are asking drivers in Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon to be patient as a protest convoy could cause traffic delays on Thursday.

The convoy is part of a protest against mandatory vaccinations in Canada on its way from British Columbia to Parliament Hill.

Peel Regional Police said Thursday that motorists should be patient “despite any traffic delays or potential inconveniences related to the protest” and reminded protesters “to obey all traffic laws to ensure the safety of all road users.”

“To ensure supporters’ safety, do not gather in crowds and congregate on highway overpasses or near roadways,” polcie said in a statement on Twitter.

The OPP Highway Safety Division also said the protest might affect traffic flow across the GTA and Golden Horseshoe, and that emergency responders have experienced difficulty responding to emergencies.

“If you are motorists in the area, plan ahead, expect delays starting on Thursday,” OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said.

Nearly two of every three Mississauga residents who responded to an informal poll yesterday say they support the Canadian truckers’ convoy.

The poll conducted by on Instagram found that 64 per cent of those who responded support the truckers’ convoy.

In total, 2,632 people responded to the poll, with 1,673 indicating support for the truckers’ protest and 959 saying they do not support the convoy.
