The Regina Police Service is currently overseeing the process of clearing structures and debris from City of Regina property adjacent to the Co-op Refinery Complex on 9th Avenue North, between McDonald and Winnipeg Streets.
This is part of a plan to restore a safe physical environment which will support peaceful, lawful and safe picketing by members of Unifor Canada, Local 594 and their supporters, in accordance with the December 24, 2019, Queen’s Bench Court Order by Justice J. McMurtry.
There will be a temporary restriction of vehicle and pedestrian traffic in order to make the site safe and remove materials which could potentially be used to create an illegal barrier. At this time, police have the required permits from the City of Regina to close 9th Avenue North between McDonald Street and Winnipeg Street.
When the area is cleared of structures and debris, and made safe, picketers will be permitted to walk freely in the area with signage and other informational materials. Vehicles not related to the operation of the businesses in the area will not be permitted.
The Regina Police Service will advise the public once the area is re-opened to pedestrian traffic.
