Saskatchewan RCMP Working to Keep Roads Opened to Traffic During Weekend Demonstrations

Saskatchewan RCMP is aware of demonstrations expected to occur this weekend at the North Portal and Northgate points of entry at the Canadian border with the United States.

“We commit to working with any involved parties to minimize the impact on the traveling public to these ports of entry. Members of the public are encouraged to check for road closure information and monitor local media for information and alternate routes.

Demonstrations may interrupt the normal flow of traffic. Our objective in policing any demonstrations this weekend is to work to restore the orderly flow of traffic in the safest manner possible.

To do so, we always prefer using communication and a measured response. We are making extensive efforts to engage with all stakeholders before and during the demonstrations to ensure everyone involved is aware of the current legal boundaries of a peaceful and lawful protest.

Demonstrators without access to a staging area on private land will be turned away. Saskatchewan RCMP officers have been and will continue to distribute these details to the gathered demonstrators.

Local residents will notice an increased police presence as we review and assess any ongoing situations to ensure order and public safety.

To ensure the safety of our police officers and the public, we do not disclose operational details.

Updates will be provided as they become available,” Saskatchewan RCMP
