Despite strong winds and chilly weather, for the eighth time, the Estevan participants of the Yellow West Movement gathered in front of City Hall Saturday afternoon.
The regular members hit the streets to protest against the carbon tax and other federal government policies.
A number of yellow vest protester are planning to soon join the pro-pipeline rally that will be heading to Ottawa. It will be going by Estevan on February 15, so now people can notice more and more “pro-pipeline” vehicles. Estevan protest movement leader Jay Riedel will join his brother-in-law for a ride in “oil and gas” “build pipelines” white truck equipped with the semi-truck horn. They want to make sure that the federal government will hear their voices.
Not all supporters physically participate in every demonstration. Some people stopped by to drop hot coffee and donuts. Others just honked their horns while passing by.
Protesters say that every Saturday when they come in front of the City Hall, there are different local people who bring them snacks and hot beverages this way expressing their support.
