The Regina Police Service was present at the demonstration on Albert Street in front of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building over the weekend of February 5th and 6th, in the capacity of ensuring public safety and keeping the peace for both the protestors and members of the public. Although the Canadian Constitution upholds the rights of individuals to lawfully protest, police members observed unlawful violations, and demonstrators were informed and ticketed. Over the course of the weekend, thirty (30) City of Regina Parking Bylaw tickets were issued, and two (2) Traffic Safety Act Offence tickets (SOTI’s) were issued. One vehicle was also towed.
Police efforts and discussion with members of the protest group led to the successful departure of the vehicles. By midnight on Sunday, all vehicles had left, and despite complaints of noise, the demonstration was peaceful in nature.
We would like to thank the public for their continued support.
