Tesla customers in Alberta hoping to receive their new car soon might have to wait a little longer. The ongoing trucker protests have blocked some car carriers from entering Canada.

Two Model 3 reservation holders in Edmonton have reached out to this week letting us know that Tesla advised them their cars have been held up at the Coutts border crossing in southern Alberta.

Deliveries that were scheduled to take place have been pushed back to later in the week or next week, with the hopes they could take place sooner if the blockade is cleared.

The border has been subject to a number of blockades over the past two weeks.

Alberta RCMP said last night that both the northbound and southbound lanes were blocked by demonstrators, and asked people to avoid the area.

According to a report this morning from CBC, the blockade had been removed and traffic was flowing across the border, although there was still congestion that needed to be cleared.
