OTTAWA (Monday, Jan. 23 2023) — The Ottawa People’s Commission on the Convoy Occupation (OPC) will release Part I of its final report on Monday, Jan. 30, documenting the experiences of Ottawa residents during the convoy occupation in February 2022.

Through fourteen hearings, eight community consultations, and over 75 written submissions, OPC has heard from over 200 Ottawa-Gatineau residents who have bravely shared the impact of huge trucks blocking streets, noxious fumes, unrelenting honking, and harassment and intimidation during the three-and-a-half week convoy occupation of February 2022.

OPC will hold a news conference on Monday, Jan. 30 at 10:00am at the Centretown Community Health Centre located at 420 Cooper St to mark the official release of this first part of their report and speak to its findings.
