Central Alberta RCMP are advising motorists of potential traffic disruptions over the weekend due to an ongoing protest occurring on the QE II at the Juniper Lake Rest stop near Lacombe.

“Disruptions to traffic flow from the protest on the QE II has been minimal at this point,” says Cpl. Troy Savinkoff, “With fairly good weekend weather we can expect an increase in protestors. This combined with traffic congestion could present a safety issue.”

RCMP advise that often times these protests have included vehicles conducting a “slow roll” consisting of a small convoy of vehicles driving below the speed limit on the highways.

Motorist are advised to expect delays or take alternates routes.
