Premier Scott Moe is not mincing words after learning of a Saturday protest outside the home of the province’s chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab.
Moe, who refers to the protesters, as a group of idiots says the harassment of Dr. Shahab and his family at their home is simply unacceptable, sickening and wrong.
Earlier today, a group of idiots took their misguided protest to Dr. Shahab’s family home in Regina. This harassment of Dr. Shahab and his family at their home is simply unacceptable, sickening and wrong. (1/6)

The statement ends by saying Regina Police and RCMP have been called in to protect Dr. Shahab and his family and that the government is evaluatiing long-term security options to ensure Shahab can continue focusing on providing the valuable advice he has throughout the pandemic without needing to worry about his personal safety or that of his family.
