Right now, public health orders state outdoor and private gatherings of more than 30 people are prohibited.
On Thursday, Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said it was time for people to start listening to the professionals.
“The time for education is over,” Wyant said.
“We need to be very aggressive in terms of ensuring that there is compliance with public health orders.”
Police say they will determine appropriate action as they see fit.
The anti-mask rally is expected to have several vehicles entering the city, who will convene near the Legislative grounds upon arrival.
Organizers have been contacted by police and told officers will be present in order to keep the peace and ensure public safety.
“I hope those attending would consider how insignificant the inconveniences they are being asked to follow really are compared to the pain of losing a loved one,” Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said in a Facebook post on Saturday.
An operational traffic plan has been set to ensure safety for pedestrians and motorists.
Police say any anybody looking to avoid the event should choose routes other than Albert Street and other roadways immediately around the Legislature.
More to come.
