Truck convoy demonstrators in Ottawa headed to the city's airport on Thursday, as an expansion of the occupation near Parliament Hill that has being going on for two weeks now.
It was estimated that more than 30 vehicles were initially circling the area, with no flight delays reported.

We are aware of a concerted effort to flood our 911 and non-emergency policing reporting line. This endangers lives and is completely unacceptable. (1/2)

Additionally, Ottawa police alerted the public that they are aware of a "concerted effort" to "flood" 911 and the non-emergency reporting line.
"This endangers lives and is completely unacceptable," a tweet from Ottawa police reads.
"It is a crime to unnecessarily call 911 or our non-emergency number (613-236-1222). We track calls and will charge anyone deliberately interfering with emergencies."
