Donate bright yellow vests, dozens of calgaries gathered across the street from town hall on Saturday when they expressed concern about the direction they feel Canada is going to go.
The hundreds of protesters chanted "Trudeau must go" as they attracted drivers along MacLeod Tr. to base their horns
When the traffic ended on Stephen Ave. crossroads, protesters would go back and forth across the road that waved their homemade signs that require an end to Justin Trudeau's time as prime minister.
A protester, Orion Fike, said that one of the reasons why he was there was to show solidarity with others who stood against the UN.
Fike said it was very important for people to have the opportunity to come and protest in the way they were.
"Whenever the government is out of control or has passed, I think it's our civil duty to try to correct them – it's part of the process, because if we do not express us, they do not know," he said.
Confused by losing his job in the oil plate, Ricky Strap said he also donated his yellow west in protest against Trudeau.
"I worked in the patch and I lost my job because of (Trudeau)," he said.
"I've lost my house, my marriage is suffering … I've been looking for dividends, can not get a job."
A handful of members of the anti-immigrant White Nationalist Organization Soldiers of Odin were seen at the protest, as police watched them and others in the audience.
While things were quite calm in Calgary, a similar movement in Edmonton saw at least one yellow west prostitute away from the crowd of the police.
A group marched from Alberts legislature to Churchill Square, where counter-protesters had gathered in support of immigration, which gave rise to a heated exchange of rallying screams.
The organizer of Edmonton's March refused to speak with reporters and said he was telling the media. He told Postmedia that he was a former member of Odin's soldiers.
The yellow West projects originate in France with anti-government demonstrations that begin in mid-November on fuel taxes that have since been expanded
So far, eight people have died in conflicts with the French police, who have used tear gas and water cannons to deter the crowds.
The police put the number in Paris at about 3000, compared to 10,000 a week ago, when protests turned into violence and robbery in the second week in a row.
The French press quoted the authorities as saying that 33,500 demonstrators turned out to be nationwide Saturday, less than half of the previous week.
