    Government issued an advisory about the delay in delivering the budget speech yesterday saying “the conditions are unsafe for employees and visitors to the complex, and there is a threat of violence.”

    Government and fish harvesters will be back in court today after the decision was made yesterday to delay the 2024 budget speech due to protesters on the steps of Confederation building. The Supreme Court granted an injunction to stop fish harvesters from blocking access to Confederation Building and not allowing employees inside to do their jobs. Government issued an advisory about the delay saying “the conditions are unsafe for employees and visitors to the complex, and there is a threat of violence.” Government lawyers were quick to file a motion to prevent the protesters from intimidating or threatening public employees. The budget speech was due to be read at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon but has been postponed.
