Thousands of Calgarians marched through downtown on Saturday to protest against cuts in the United Conservative government's second budget that impact health care, public education and the post-secondary sector.

People of all ages — including young kids, union and non-union groups, doctors, teachers and many others — turned out in droves, bringing their message through Calgary's core by chanting and holding signs critical of Premier Jason Kenney and his government.

A large crowd eventually filled the plaza outside city hall after making its way from Western Canada High School to highlight education concerns, then moving on to the Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre to shine a spotlight on health care.
