Activist in action: Tatianna Landsman, a Ponoka student, read her school essay and a new speech at Yellow Vest movement rally in Saskatoon on May 4. The convoy left Alberta on May 3 with about 60 cars and trucks. The convoy was escorted by the Saskatoon police department, closing off every intersection in a wide circle around the convoy. The rally started with a dinner before speeches were given. Landsman answered questions on a live feed that evening, getting some guidance from her mentors and some practice for her to start her own liv feed on her United Yellow Vest youth Facebook group. The event also served as a reunion for all the people that journeyed on the Ottawa united we roll convoy. On May 5, the convoy headed back to Alberta, breaking off at the boarder as people made their way back to their hometowns. Photo submitted.
