Americans show support for Canadians from other side of border

U.S. citizens gathered over the weekend in Sweetgrass, Montana, many of which drove five or six hours from different parts of the state, to show their support for the Freedom Convoy taking place in Ottawa, and to rally around Canadian protesters in Alberta.
Standing on the opposite side of a plastic fence, which acts as the international boundary between Montana and Alberta, one woman who served in the U.S. military for four years says, “I know what it’s like to fight for your freedom, and I believe everybody deserves freedom.”
