Estevan is the eighth largest city in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Souris River runs by the city. The city is surrounded by the Rural Municipality of Estevan. Estevan was the site of the notorious Estevan Riot. Although most of the strikers were from nearby Bienfait, the strike is associated with Estevan because it was in this city that the demonstrators were met by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
