It’s my livelihood, says picker owner and operator

Estevan – Tyler Waisman’s big blue picker was near the front of the parade, both for the late December convoy through Estevan, and for the April 4 Regina Rally Against the Carbon Tax.

The owners of the two-picker Chaos Transport, Tyler Waisman, and his wife, Kayla Simon, were riding high after a long day.

At the end of the day, after getting back to Estevan from the convoy and rally, Waisman said he took part because, “It’s my livelihood. It’s a lot of my friends and family’s livelihood. I think it’s very important.”

Do they think they are making a difference? Waisman said, “I think so.

“If you sit on your butt and do nothing, you’re going to get nothing, for sure. We have to do something. It was a once in a lifetime experience. 

“I was blown away. When we came into Weyburn, they were lined up past the auction mart and past the terminal. My mind was blown away for sure,” he said.
