Drawn from a one-man show James Gordon produced about the so-called 'Freedom Convoy' that landed in Ottawa and other cities early in 2022. With humour, 12 original songs, and commentary, James outlines why he believes that the Convoy was misguided, misinformed, and a dangerous threat guided by extreme right-wing agitators. The title song was a viral hit with 300,000 views on social media and YouTube. It produced widespread approval, hate mail and even death threats.
