The convoy at the Saskatchewan legislature broke up, one car remained
Most pickups and personal cars have left to escort goods parked outside Saskatchewan Legislative Buildingprotest COVID-19 limitations.
A vehicle remains in line in the northbound lane of Albert Street. There was a dense police presence in the area, with officers surrounding the vehicle at one point.
There were about 30 police officers and cruisers in the area as of Sunday night.
About 50 people remained in the area, around one remaining vehicle.
Organizer Tamara Lavoie declined to speak to a Global News photographer.
“I’m a bit shocked right now,” Lavoie told another reporter during his live session.
“I do not accept what the police did here today. I don’t accept what they called the rickshaw here did today. I don’t accept what the people who left did,” Lavoie added
Global News has reached out to two local trucking companies, who did not provide statements or respond to questions on file.
In the midst of life, Lavoie was assigned a parking ticket, which she said she would hand over to the mayor’s office.
The convoy began Saturday afternoon with cars lined up along Albert Street.
Regina Police did not respond to comment to Global News prior to publication.
More will come.
