People who had a good view of the North Service Road in Kindersley might have seen something a little different yesterday afternoon.

A large turnout was present for a Canadian oil and gas rally consisting of Kindersley residents and people from the surrounding rural area.

The rally, which garnered support through social media posts and word of mouth, was a peaceful movement that started in the parking lot of the Kindersley Mall. Almost 200 people made it to the rally dressed in their oil field attire and/or carrying bristol boards with messages of support.

The group started from the mall parking lot and began their walking journey West on the North Service Road.

This rally was a part of a nationwide drive to demonstrate support for Canadian oil and gas and garner attention from the federal government after plans to establish a carbon tax in Saskatchewan and the latest bill C-69 talks in Ottawa.
