An ongoing feud between a group of Indigenous rights protesters and the province appears not over just yet.
Last month, the Justice for our Stolen Children camp vacated Regina’s Wascana Park after a judge ruled they should do so.
The protesters had been there since early spring.
In an appeal filed with the Saskatchewan Court of Appel last week, their lawyer Daniel LeBlanc says Justice Ysanne Wilkinson erred in a number of areas in her decision.
This includes refusing to declare the arrest of six protesters on June 18 illegal.
The appeal also says the judge placed too much emphasis on the park permitting process and not enough on the Charter rights of the protesters.
The group fully vacated the park on Sept. 12.
They had been there for almost 200 days.
