A rally was held in front of Health Minister Paul Merriman’s office Wednesday in Saskatoon, with those in attendance calling for stricter COVID-19 measures, vaccine initiatives, and more support for healthcare professionals.
The rally was in an effort to call on the province to implement what the group calls “common sense, evidence-based policy.”
The organizers of the rally say similar events will be held every Wednesday until new measures are announced.
It may not be that much longer. In a statement from the provincial government, Premier Scott Moe and Health Minister Paul Merriman are engaging further with the Saskatchewan Health Authority regarding the recent COVID-19 situation, including the increase in hospitalization numbers.
An announcement will be made in the coming days.
Another protest in favour of more COVID-restrictive measures is scheduled to take place in Regina Thursday afternoon.
There were 405 new cases reported in Saskatchewan on Wednesday.
