Saskatchewan asks judge to order removal of protesters outside legislature
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.
