For the third straight weekend, a group of Moose Jaw residents will be holding a Yellow Vest protest in front of City Hall.

Originating in France, the cross-Canada protests began as a way for individuals to speak out against the government's plan to levy a fuel tax. Armed with signs and the movements staple, construction vests, a group of Moose Jaw residents gather on Main Street Saturday to protest.

"We had 20 last week," explained organizer, Al Church, "it started with one... Which was me. Then it went to 14 or 15 and now we're over 20, so we're growing."

Moose Javians in attendance plan to demonstrate their displeasure on a number of items such as delayed pipelines, Bill C69, the federal government, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the UN Migration Pact.

"We just have decided enough is enough. We talk and we complain but it's time we do something about it and that's what we're attempting to do."  Church continued.

Although previous gatherings saw groups of counter-protesters attend to express their thoughts on the matter, that hasn't discouraged the local demonstrators. 

As Church reflected on the past two weekends, he feels like they're getting people's attention, "it's just amazing how much support we had. There were hundreds of cars honking and waving at us, it was almost emotional."

Organizers and protesters have also stressed that they are not racist, homophobic or against immigration and that is not the message they want to convey. 

The Yellow Vest Movement has made a plan to meet every Saturday across the country.
