The inquiry into Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergency Measures Act continues in Ottawa. So far, it has shown that Trudeau lied about police requesting that he invoke it. Now comes news that further demonstrates Trudeau’s totalitarian tendencies. The Trudeau government, from the onset of the Freedom Convoy, tried to raise fear across the country that the Convoy was a danger to national security. Recall the drastic step the Canadian government took in freezing the bank accounts of those who were linked to the protests. There was also consideration by the RCMP top cop of the possibility of using troops disguised as Mounties at the Freedom Convoy.
The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) also warned the Trudeau government that the threshold was not met to invoke the Emergency Measures Act, but Trudeau went ahead and invoked it anyway.
The inquiry increasingly shows the level of control the Trudeau government is prepared to exercise over its citizens. And to make sure he stayed in power after the Freedom Convoy grew and support for it expanded into other countries, Trudeau formed a pact with the NDP to prop him up until 2025. This pact guaranteed that Trudeau would survive any no-confidence motion or major bill that could cause his government to fall (such as a budget bill). That means that Canadians are stuck with Trudeau for over two more years, thanks to his lackey Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the NDP.
“‘Freedom Convoy’ did not pose threat to the security of Canada: CSIS director,” by Laura Osman and Jim Bronskill, CTV News, November 14, 2022:
Liberal cabinet ministers deemed last winter’s “Freedom Convoy” protests a threat to national security, despite warnings from the federal intelligence agency that threshold was not met, an inquiry into the use of the Emergencies Act learned Monday.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the act on Feb. 14, arguing its temporary and extraordinary powers were needed to end blockades in Ottawa and at border crossings.
The legislation says a public order emergency is one that comes from a “serious threat to the security of Canada, as defined by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act.”
The definition includes espionage or sabotage of Canada’s interests, foreign-influenced activities, or the violent overthrow of the government.
The Public Order Emergency Commission, which is holding hearings in Ottawa until Nov. 25, is tasked with determining whether the government was justified in triggering the legislation.
A document summarizing the evidence from David Vigneault, director of CSIS, shows he believed the protest “at no time” posed a threat to Canada’s security and that there were no signs of foreign interference….
