Participants on a Canadian boat taking part in a flotilla expected to set sail for Gaza in the coming days said on Monday that they intend to try to leave the Greek port where they are docked on Monday, according to the Canadian Toronto Star.

“The remaining boats are going to try to move — the remaining boats that can move,” David Heap, a participant on the Tahrir, the Canadian boat, was quoted as saying Sunday.

Despite setbacks and delays, Heap announced "We will move (Monday)."

According to the Toronto Star, 22 Canadians plan to sail on the Tahrir, as well as delegates from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, and Turkey.
