REGINA, Saskatchewan (LifeSiteNews) — The premier of Saskatchewan turned to social media to hammer home his message that COVID-19 restrictions will end in the prairie province this month.
Premier Scott Moe took to Twitter last night to explain his plan to have lift Saskatchewan’s restrictions by February 28. In the series of short videos, Moe stated that it is time to treat COVID like the flu. He acknowledged that the people of his province would rather live with the risks of the coronavirus than with the “ongoing” infringements on their “rights and freedoms” he has authorized for the past two years.

“Hi, everyone. There’s been a lot of discussion lately about whether it’s time for us in Saskatchewan to look at ending all remaining COVID measures and restrictions that we have in place,” Moe began.
“Well, I think it is time.”
Moe said that both he and the MLAs (Members of the Legislative Assembly) representing the people of Saskatchewan have been hearing consistently that the public wants an end to all the measures implemented in the name of public health.
This statement is backed by a recent poll by reputable pollster Angus Reid that found that 54 percent of Canadians, and 62 percent of Saskatchewanians, desire an immediate end to all the COVID-19 measures authorized by Moe and the other various Canadian governments.
Admitting that the policies he thrusted upon his population have been an “intrusion” into the “daily” lives of his citizens, Moe said that he now believes people know the risks COVID poses and can make their own decisions about their behavior.
“We may continue to see COVID morph into different variants and forms in the coming months and years, but we need to end the perpetual state of crisis,” Moe stated, acknowledging that other jurisdictions around the world are dropping restrictions.
“What does this all mean for us? It means COVID is not ending, but government restrictions on your rights and freedoms will be ending, and ending very soon,” the premier added.
Moe first announced the decision to drop the restrictions on Monday evening.
In the past, there has been criticism of Moe’s constant flip-flopping on the issue of vaccine passports. Now some see his move towards restoring freedom as a result of the immense pressure put on governments by the “Freedom Convoy” trucker protest still underway in Ottawa.
Since launching our petition in support of the Freedom Convoy truckers less than one week ago, we've managed to obtain more than 65,000 signatures from freedom-loving people in every corner of the world!
This is an excellent show of support for the international cause of freedom from intrusive medical mandates, but Canada's truckers still find themselves a foremost target of their government, at both the federal and, now, local levels.
In fact, Mayor Jim Watson has even instituted an entirely unnecessary and politically-motivated "state of emergency" in Ottawa simply due to the truckers' presence there.
So if you haven't already, please SIGN this important petition, which calls on Prime Minister Trudeau and his pro-mandate allies to acknowledge the medical autonomy of working people by reversing course in the federal strategy to combat Covid.

Thank you for being a voice for freedom and medical autonomy!
Canadian truckers are fighting back against Justin Trudeau's Covid overreach and medical tyranny, and are giving people across the country -- and the world -- a new voice for freedom!
These truckers, like millions of other Canadians, have been subjected to unprecedented medical coercion, manipulation, and intimidation on behalf of Trudeau's liberal government, and, with their livelihoods on the line, they have risen to meet the moment by bringing their cause directly to Ottawa in the form of a massive Freedom Convoy!
But, unsurprisingly, they are still being met with resistance by extreme politicians who wish to exercise complete control over these truckers' -- and all Canadians' -- medical autonomy, which is why we're asking you to show your support for these brave, hardworking men and women by adding your name and your voice to their cause.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to back off these truckers, change course in his approach to Covid, and support the medical autonomy of the truckers and all working Canadians going forward.
Like millions of Canadian workers across the country, truckers are being required by Justin Trudeau's Liberal government to get the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, or face a 14-day quarantine period if and when they cross the border into the United States to make their deliveries.
These truckers were categorized as "essential workers" (which they most certainly are) during the worst days of the Covid crisis, when lockdowns were the universal norm and millions of people were forced out of their jobs and offices. Even so, they remained on the job through it all, ensuring that essentials were available to people in every corner of the country, even when some businesses were shut down and strict rules were in place that made something as simple as grocery shopping a challenge for millions.
In fact, Prime Minister Trudeau went out of his way to compliment these men and women back in March of 2020, tweeting the following:
While many of us are working from home, there are others who aren’t able to do that - like the truck drivers who are working day and night to make sure our shelves are stocked. So when you can, please #ThankATrucker for everything they’re doing and help them however you can.
In fact, But just yesterday, Trudeau went on the record at a press conference labeling these truckers everything from "racists" to "Nazis" in a simply stunning reversal from his earlier comments.
So why the sudden change in attitude from the Prime Minister?
Because, as it turns out, these truckers are refusing to sit idly by while their rights -- and the rights of millions of working Canadians -- remain under attack like never before, and they are standing up to Trudeau and challenging his government's radical medical tyranny head-on.
With their livelihoods on the line, these truckers decided it was time to take action.
This past weekend, the #FreedomConvoy led a 50-mile-long caravan of what's estimated to be thousands of truckers from across Canada to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where they staged a monumental demonstration to protest Trudeau's vaccination mandate.
In addition, truckers from across the United States (who are similarly fighting to preserve their own medical freedoms against a power-hungry federal government) also joined the Freedom Convoy to stand in solidarity with their neighbors to the north.
This massive, now-international movement to restore the individual rights of these truckers and all working people after nearly two years' worth of lockdowns, mandates, and vast government overreach and infringement is taking Ottawa -- and all of Canada -- by storm.
Look no further than the trucker's GoFundMe, which has raised $10 million in support of their cause -- more than what was raised by either of Canada's two major political parties during the last financial quarter of 2021.
The grassroots are clearly on their side (and the side of freedom), but even so, Trudeau remains unmoved...
He has dismissed the truckers and their supporters as a "small fringe," and has even accused the organizers of the Freedom Convoy and its participants of holding "unacceptable views."
But Justin Trudeau is wrong: These hardworking men and women are not racists or Nazis, and they are certainly not a fringe group -- they are patriotic, freedom-loving Canadians who refuse to stand down when being faced with egregious medical tyranny on the federal government's part, and who are using their constitutional right(s) to freedom of speech and expression to be a unified voice for millions of others faced with similar medical mandates.
And they need our support.
So please, take a few minutes now to SIGN and SHARE this important petition asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reverse course by supporting these truckers (and all working Canadians) by abandoning intrusive, unconstitutional vaccination mandates for working people going forward.
This petition will be delivered, in person, to both Prime Minister Trudeau and the leaders of the Freedom Convoy.
Let's show Justin Trudeau, once and for all, that the desire to live and work freely is not just limited to a "small fringe," but rather the inherent right of ALL Canadians and their millions of backers from across the globe -- including YOU!

As thousands of Canadians have remained in the capital city to demand that their constitutional rights be respected, media and government have attempted to smear the protestors as a “fringe minority” with racist and “Nazi” ideals.
However, this narrative has been met with exceptional backlash by alternative media outlets, private citizens, elected representatives, and the rally organizers themselves, who have recorded innumerable videos of the protesters from a variety of backgrounds expressing their views in a reasonable and peaceful way.
Conservative Member of Parliament Pierre Poilievre called out this mainstream bias outside Parliament last Thursday.
“When there is a left-wing protest on Parliament Hill, we don’t see the liberal media going through every single name of the people who attend to try and find one person they can disparage the whole group with,” he remarked.
“Whenever you have five or ten thousand people who are part of any group, you’re bound to have a number who … say unacceptable things, and they should be individually responsible … but that doesn’t mean we disparage the thousands of law-abiding and peaceful truckers, who, quite frankly, have kept all of you alive these last two years.”
