EDMONTON -- A group of oil and gas supporters is planning a counter-rally in Edmonton on Friday, when Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg brings her fight for a greener future to the centre of Canada's oil and gas industry.
Glen Carritt, who organized the United We Roll convoy that travelled to Ottawa in February, said a similar convoy will start in Red Deer, about 150 kilometres south of the Alberta capital, in the morning.
He said trucks are expected to arrive at the legislature at noon, when a climate rally is to begin with Thunberg.
"We don't need anymore celebrities coming here to tell us how to run our business," Carritt said, referring to actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Jane Fonda, who have criticized the oilsands development in the region.
"We're very frustrated and we're frustrated at the fact that we still don't have pipelines in the ground and we continue to buy foreign oil."

Ask Greta how she got there. Hang gliding, perhaps?
Ride to North America from Europe on a $400,000 yacht made with materials derived from petroleum.
Then flying here and there to rant against fossil fuels while travelling on aircraft built with materials derived from petroleum and powered with petroleum fuel.
While dining on food products raised on farms using petroleum powered farm machinery built in factories powered by electricity produced by petroleum fuels and delivered by truck, train and ships powered by petroleum fuels.
She's not only stupid and a hypocrite - she's a terribly;y bad actress.
That's why Hollywood will be after her any day now - she will fit right in.
Being Swedish, this may be first time in her life she gets to see REAL MEN alive and in person.
A tool is a brainless object which is used and then discarded.
Idiot socialist child is worse than a tool -— as a tool does something useful.
Greta Thunberg, please throw away/discard everything that was created via the energy technology you speak against, and stop using the power from the same source.
You will THUS be dead in a few weeks (or less) in your cold mud hut, and that might demonstrate the brain-dead aspect of your demented socialist natterings.
Go away stupid child.
But she will make someone one hell of an ex-wife someday.
give Leo 4 or 5 years he’ll be tapping it without the ring.
Probably not even that long.
Greta Thuneberg is a third rate celebrity.
Third rate? You’re being too kind.
Yes, I am!
Hasn’t she gone home yet? Doesn’t she have piano lessons or a tap-dance class to get to?
All I have to say to these earth-despising truck drivers is: HOW DAAAAAAAAAARE YOU!!!
