Carbon Tax Protest Convoy in Regina Today


The Regina Rally Against the Carbon Tax aims to raise support in the fight against the federal government’s imposed carbon tax in Saskatchewan by means of a truck convoy and rally is set to take place in Regina.  The stated aim is to bring awareness to the need for the construction of additional pipelines, and the abolishment of Bills C-69 and C-48.

Organizers say all are welcome to participate in the event, with the exception of Yellow Vest members, which are prohibited from the convoy and rally.

Those participating in the convoy will meet at one of several collection points – including from Estevan, Weyburn, and Carnduff – the morning of April 4, and depart for Regina.

The convoy will travel along Hwy 33, Arcola Ave., Saskatchewan Dr., Lewvan Dr., and 11th Ave., ending at Queensbury Convention Centre. Speeches are expected to commence at 2 p.m.
