Estevan Yellow Vests support the convoy from home

With the big convoy rolling through Prairies heading to Ottawa and another pro-pipeline rally happening in Moossomin at the moment, Estevan Yellow Vests managed to gather enough people to hit the streets for already-traditional Saturday protest. 

While about 12 Estevan activists including Estevan Yellow Vests leader Jay Riedel left to Ottawa on Feb. 14., over a dozen protesters gathered in front of City Hall in Estevan to demonstrate their discontent with some federal policies.

Some of the protest participants had banners promoting their opinion about the carbon tax and the contemporary federal government. Others brought Canadian flags to hold or to display on a vehicle, and one SUV had a picture of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dressed in a yellow vest on the front bumper. 

First Estevan Yellow Vests protest took place on Dec. 15, 2018. A week later it was followed by a major truck convoy with over 400 vehicles participating to show support for the oil and gas industry and to protest some of the decisions made by the federal government.
