Saskatchew­an asks judge to or­der re­moval of pro­test­ers out­side leg­is­la­ture

The Western Star - - CANADA -

REGINA — The Saskatchew­an gov­ern­ment is ask­ing a judge to or­der that pro­test­ers camped out­side the leg­is­la­ture be re­moved. Gov­ern­ment lawyer Michael Mor­ris has told a Regina court that the pro­test­ers are mak­ing it hard for the prov­ince to main­tain the land across from the build­ing.

Teepees have been set up for six months as campers protest what they say is racial in­jus­tice and the dis­pro­por­tion­ate num­ber of In­dige­nous chil­dren ap­pre­hended by child-wel­fare work­ers.

Pro­test­ers have filed a court ap­pli­ca­tion of their own seek­ing to have six ar­rests made dur­ing an evic­tion in June de­clared il­le­gal.
