A protest is planned for North Bay this weekend.

A group calling itself Yellow Vest North Bay is planning a protest this Saturday, 11 a.m. in front of City Hall.

Local organizer Alex Barbu Caron says the event is planned to "protest against the carbon tax and the treason of our country's politicians who have the audacity to sell out our country's sovereignty over to the globalist UN pact and their tyrannical policies."

It's in reference to the UN Global Compact For Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

Protests are taking place across Canada.

The movement has come to Canada from France where yellow vest protests have broken out in after the French government tried to increase gasoline taxes, but have been marred by violence.

Caron tells BayToday that the local protest will be peaceful.

Last weekend in Edmonton a few hundred people took to the streets wearing yellow vests to protest the Canadian carbon tax and the UN Global Compact on Migration. 

Caron says he expects more than 1,000 people to attend the local protest, adding there are now more than 30,000 on the Facebook page Yellow Vest Canada.
