Can’t Have a Tipi At Canada Day in Wascana Park

The Provincial Government had peaceful protesters arrested on Monday for having a tipi in Wascana Park. The government’s position was that the grass would be harmed, and the tipi would be a distraction from the Canada Day festivities, and probably for the National Aboriginal Day festivities in three days too.

As you can see, it’s quite distracting when a tipi is at a Canada Day party.

Perhaps they didn’t want its smoke causing a distraction since the diesel or gas powered lights used in that same park space are already pretty toxic and loud:

Or perhaps they didn’t want it to upstage the tipi set up even closer to the Legislature last Canada Day?
