Premier Scott Moe is saying he respects the right of the protesters out on the Legislative lawn, but warns they are breaking the law.
The ‘Justice for our Stolen Children’ protest group has been on the lawn in front of the Legislature for months now, raising concerns over several topics including the provincial foster care system and the lack of investigation in deaths of First Nations children.
Moe said he understands their frustrations.
“There are parents across the street that are raising their voices with respect to the fact that they have lost loved ones for (various) reasons a here in the province of Saskatchewan and it isn’t lost on me either, the claim that we are in the southern portion of the province, here on treaty four territory.”
Premier Moe said government officials will be meeting with the group on Monday.
“…to listen and interact tentatively to the concerns that are raised, and I think it’s fair to say that the access for these individuals, and the concerns they have, have been and will be heard by the government of Saskatchewan.”
Moe says he will not be a part of those conversations due to previous commitments made in Saskatoon for that day.
