Extreme cold doesn't stop Yellow Vest protesters

Even though the southeast region has been gripped by extremely cold temperatures for the past few days, that didn't deter members of the local Yellow Vest Movement from staging another protest in front of City Hall in Estevan on Saturday.

The Yellow Vests have been out in front of City Hall each week since Dec. 15, 2018. More than a dozen were there on Saturday.

Once again they were toting signs that criticized some of the federal government's policies. They received plenty of encouragement from passing motorists. 

The protest was the last before the United we Roll! Convoy to Ottawa truck convoy, which will start Feb. 14 in Red Deer, Alta., and make its way through Saskatchewan on Feb. 14 and 15. (For more on the convoy, please visit www.pipelinenews.ca or see next week's edition of the Mercury will have more on the convoy).
