Tipi re-erected after National Indigenous Peoples Day event

Three days after police and government officials ordered the removal of the Justice for Our Stolen Children camp, the tipi is back up.

The camp was set up in February in front of the Saskatchewan Legislature after the acquittals of Gerald Stanley in the fatal shooting of Colten Boushie and Raymond Cormier in the death of Tina Fontaine.

Protesters camped in front of the legislature for 111 days.

The government said the removal of the protesters came down to safety concerns in Wascana Park.

The tipi was re-erected on Thursday evening following an event marking National Indigenous Peoples Day.

Police had heard about the tipi going back up and came by to observe what was happening but did not take any enforcement action.
