Saskatchewan looking to shut down teepee camp demonstrations

REGINA — The Saskatchewan government is asking a judge to order an Indigenous protest camp to leave the legislature grounds.

Government lawyer Michael Morris told a Regina court that indigenous demonstrators are making it hard for the province to maintain the land across from the building.

Teepees have been set up for six months as campers protest racial injustice and the disproportionate number of Indigenous children apprehended by child-welfare workers.

Protesters have filed a court application of their own seeking to have six arrests made during an eviction in June declared illegal.
