Trucker protests: RCMP say they’ve reached peaceful end to blockade in Emerson, Man.

Global News in Canada shows that after nearly a week of blockades at the Emerson, Man. border prevented travellers and trade from passing through, the RCMP said Tuesday that an agreement has been reached with protesters and they’re expected to head home. 

The RCMP say they’ve had two negotiators on site at the blockade for up to 16 hours a day. 

Trucks, trailers and farm equipment have been sitting in the middle of Highway 75 for six days. But RCMP say they’ve reached a peaceful resolution with protesters. No charges or arrests were made.

The RCMP say they’re confident the area will be cleared by Wednesday.
