Cochrane RCMP has advised the public of travel delays on Highway 1.

This is in response to a Carbon Tax rally set up West of Cochrane at the Highway 1 and Highway 22 intersection.

The rally was organized by the Nationwide Protest Against Carbon Tax, and according to their website, this is one of 18 rallies across Canada.

This rally began at 8 a.m. and there is no word of how long the rally will continue for.

On their website, they have asked all participants to leave at least one center lane of traffic open to the public.

The Carbon Tax is increasing, as of April 1st, rising from $65 per tonne of Carbon Dioxide equivalent to $80 per tonne, with it increasing by $15 per year until eventually reaching $130 per tonne in 2030.

Cochrane RCMP has asked the public to find alternative routes, and they will be onsite to help minimize the impact on travelers and to ensure that the traffic disruption won't affect the public's safety.
