Police did not allow protesters onto the highway or permitted any disruptions to traffic during the second day of anti-carbon tax rallies west of Calgary.

“The intention is to stay until they end the carbon tax,” protester Judy Martens said Tuesday. “I packed for three weeks.”

Up to 150 people returned to Highway 1 south of Cochrane for the second straight day, but they were met with nearly the same amount of RCMP officers.

Campers could be seen scattered throughout the area, and many told CityNews they intend to stat as long as they can, describing the gathering as “a family reunion.”
