Meili called the Regina Rally Against the Carbon Tax, set to roll into the Queensbury Convention Centre on Thursday, "a yellow vest rally without the yellow vests."

"It's not really about what people are wearing, it's about what they're saying and who is organizing," he said, pointing to a Tweet threaded through with climate change denial and an organizer who warned the carbon tax was a step toward "one-world government."

"Far out there conspiracy theories," said Meili. "Climate change denial, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic sentiment. This is what the yellow vest movement has become, Mr. Speaker and I do not understand, but I'd like the Premier to explain why he wants to be associated with that group."
