Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe is condemning what he calls a “misguided protest” outside the Regina home of the province’s chief medical officer of health.
Moe says Dr. Saqib Shahab has worked tirelessly to protect the province’s residents throughout the pandemic and should not be subjected to harassment from a “group of idiots.”
In a written statement released late Saturday, he says those who disagree with his government’s decisions should take their issues up with him or a local legislator rather than going after a “dedicated public servant and his family.”
Moe says the Regina Police Service and the RCMP are both involved to make sure Shahab and his family are safe.
He says the government is looking into long-term security options to protect Shahab and his relatives, and that he’s encouraged the police forces to investigate any potential criminality in the protest.
