With the 'Freedom Convoy 2022' occupation still fresh on the minds of Ottawa residents, another convoy is coming to the capital. 

While details are scarce, it's clear the 'Rolling Thunder Ottawa' motorcycle group plans to make plenty of noise when it rolls into town on Friday, April 29.

In a viral TikTok video, member Neil Sheard says the group will be in Ottawa for two days and claims thousands of bikes are involved, but doesn't specify what they are protesting.
