Protestors rally for oil and gas industry

The industry wants pipelines to get its products to market but most pipeline projects are at a standstill

More than 100 protesters march down the north service road running along Highway 7 in Kindersley to show their support for the oil and gas industry, and to show their displeasure for the decisions being made by the federal government in relation to the industry. The protesters want pipelines to be built to take Western Canadian crude to tidewater.

The oil and gas industry is not pleased with the Canadian government. Members of the industry and their supporters have rallied to send a message to Ottawa.

More than 100 people gathered in the parking lot at the Kindersley Mall on Dec. 15 for their version of a yellow vest protest. Several people made signs and flew Canadian flags in the show of support for Canada’s oil and gas industry.

The peaceful protest included a march. A large group of the protesters marched along a service road from the Kindersley Mall to the Shell gas station before returning to the mall. The marchers held up traffic on the service road, but no one seemed to mind and several motorists and truckers honked as a show of support.
