The leader of the Saskatchewan NDP says it's "concerning" that two government cabinet ministers have appeared at protests staged by a grassroots pro-energy group that has been linked to extreme and fringe views, as well as conspiracy theories.

"What we've seen from the yellow vest movement, as it's developed in Canada, is a focus on some pretty ugly things," Ryan Meili said of the movement, which began as an anti-fuel-tax protest in France before spreading to Canada

"What I'm concerned (about) is it sends a signal that they're alongside some of the drastic anti-immigration messages, some of the more violent or hateful messages that have been coming out of the yellow vest protests," he added.
