Alberta RCMP say the truckers near the village of Coutts decided to open a lane for both north and southbound traffic on Highway 4 near Highway 501 by the Coutts border crossing. Officials say this will allow emergency services to provide full services, border access and the flow of goods to resume. Law enforcement remain on scene to ensure that the border remains open. As Micah Quinn explains, community leaders have called for the blockade to come to an end.
