A crowd of people holding signs and chanting formed in front of the legislative building Wednesday.

Around 800 unionized workers were present for a rally to protest a number of issues surrounding the provincial government, including wage cuts and privatization.

“(To) protest against the government-proposed cuts to public health worker salaries and basically how they've mismanaged the economy,” said Sean Polreis, who came down from the University of Saskatchewan to take part in the rally.

People held cardboard cut outs of Sask. Party ministers and umbrellas to shield themselves from what they said was Wall's government raining down on them.

More to come.
