The Alberta RCMP continue to respond to the Coutts border crossing.
This afternoon, in response to concerned citizens in the area of Coutts, the participants in the blockade made the decision to open a lane going northbound and southbound on Highway 4 near the Coutts border. This allows for area residents to have freedom of movement, school bussing that was impacted to be reinstated, emergency services to provide full services, border access and the flow of goods and services to resume.
The Alberta RCMP acknowledges the work that is being done.
Since the onset of the blockade, the Alberta RCMP has been actively engaging with participants of the blockade to re-open lanes of traffic.
The Alberta RCMP remain on scene and our efforts continue to be focussed on fully reopening services.
