Ottawa trucker protestors are being trolled with a pro-LGBTQ+ song

For years, I’ve been receiving CDs from the mysterious Grant MacDonald, a Toronto artist who specializes in material with hardcore gay themes. At one point at 102.1 The Edge/Toronto, we had Grant shrine, which displayed all the CDs and tchotchkes that he’d send us. When I was program director, I once got a box with at least 40 discs in it.

The guy was nothing if not persistent.

Grant’s in the news this week with his song “Ram Ranch,” a song originally written to protest the homophobia found in Nashville. Someone has broken into a channel on the Zello push-to-talk walkie-talkie app used by the protesters clogging up downtown Ottawa with their totally hijacked Freedom Convoy. It’s trolling at its finest.
