YORKTON - A number of vehicles rolled down Broadway Street in Yorkton Saturday morning.
The cavalcade of semis, half tons and other vehicles were taking part in a local effort that was part of a Farmers Worldwide Slow Roll.
The local ‘slow-roll’ was one of a number scheduled for cities across Canada today, in solidarity with farmers protesting new government environmental regulations in the Netherlands. Dutch farmers have been protesting government plans which could require farmers to use less fertilizer and reduce their livestock numbers.
Many of the Yorkton protestors were decked out in flags from Canada and the Netherlands, and honked their horns and waved to people as they made their way down Broadway Street.
