MyPillow CEO and pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell‘s plan to send a truck full of pillows to the Canadian “Freedom Convoy” protest movement has hit a snag after his crew was stopped at the Canadian border for being unvaccinated, The Independent reports.
“All of our employees are busy making pillows right now for the truckers in Canada. We’re going to try and get them through. I’m not going to say what day or you know there will be obstructionists,” Lindell told the Right Side Broadcasting Network during an interview. “We’re gonna get these brave truckers, and it’s going on around the world now. It’s amazing. We’re winning.”
Nevertheless, his unvaccinated media crew was stopped from entering Canada this Tuesday. Lindell says he’s going to try again Wednesday.
“They’ll be getting across tomorrow morning, I don’t see any problem that they’re gonna have. They’ve got all the right credentials and everything. They’re definitely not vaccinated,” he was quoted as saying on Tuesday. “We’ll see what happens. They do require another permit that we’ve had to get. So, they expedited that on the Canadian side, they expedited that permit so I believe we’ll have that tonight and we’ll see what happens in the morning.”
According to the Right Side Broadcasting Network’s Brian Glenn, “Upon entry to Canada, we were asked several questions. What’s our purpose for business, show proof of citizenship, things like that. The last question they ask you is, ‘Are you vaccinated?’ or ‘Do you have a negative PCR molecular test?’ And, of course, I’m not vaccinated, nor do I have a test.”
