On Saturday, May 25th, a protest against the current Alberta UCP party was held at Centennial Park in Sylvan Lake. This was in conjunction with a province-wide protest called #Enough is Enough UCP that was also held in Red Deer, Edmonton, Calgary, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Vermillion and Grand Prairie.

Rochelle Meikle, one of the speakers at the Sylvan Lake event talked about why they are protesting.

"Our goal today is to get as many people as we can out that are unhappy with the current government. Whether it's Bill 18 to 20, public healthcare, the climate action, there's a large group of Albertans that are not happy with the current governments, bills and laws.  So what we're doing today is we're standing together to raise our voices. They're not listening to us, and we just want to raise our voice for better Alberta for all."

Other protesters at the event carried signs with messages telling the UCP to stay away from CPP, health care, The RCMP and public education.

Meikle said the ultimate goal isn't to get rid of the present government but to get them to change.

"We realize that the election is not for three more years. So, you know, we're not demanding she step down and that's not going to work. But we want our voices heard. With eight protests across Alberta today, I think it's a good first step of getting our voices heard."
