Estevan Yellow Vests marked Vimy Ridge Day

On the 102nd anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge Estevan participants of the Yellow Vest Movement hit the streets with banners demonstrating their support to Canadian veterans and soldiers.

Estevan protesters didn’t break the pattern of Saturday demonstrations and despite rainy and windy day traditionally showed up in front of the City Hall at 12 p.m. However, their ranks thinned out a bit this time.

By 1 p.m. some of them were asked to move vehicles to allow the Vimy Ridge ceremony at the cenotaph, which didn’t cause any problems. 

Besides the veteran banners, Yellow Vests also held their regular board demonstrating discontent with the Carbon tax that was imposed on Saskatchewan and some other provinces on April 1.
