CANADA HAS FALLEN? Justin Trudeau Invokes Never-Used Emergencies Act in Desperate Attempt to End Anti-Mandate Demonstrations


10,998 views

The Canadian federal government is getting desperate, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues to back himself into a corner.

On Monday, Trudeau invoked the never-used Emergencies Act to give his government enhanced authority to respond to the peaceful anti-mandate protests and blockades.

The controversial law gives Trudeau dictatorial powers for 30 days, which includes the power to prohibit public assembly, travel, and the use of specific property.

Although the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor reopened after its week-long blockade, demonstrators in Ottawa have started their third week of protests outside of Parliament Hill.

Canadian officials unable to discover violence at the demonstrations have decided to declare war on their own citizens protesting immoral, idiotic medical mandates.

The BBC explained the powers Trudeau invoked with the Emergencies Act:

The Emergencies Act, passed in 1988, bestows the government with added powers in times of national crisis.

The situation must meet a high bar, specifically an “urgent and critical situation” that “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians”.

And Cabinet may only invoke the legislation if the emergency cannot be addressed by any existing federal law and if it exceeds the capacity of the provinces to handle it effectively.

The Emergencies Act outlines four different types of emergencies: public welfare emergencies, public order emergencies, international emergencies and war emergencies. If the legislation is invoked this week, it will likely be under the ‘public order’ category. Again, the criteria here is strict – lawful protests do not qualify.

Instead, the situation must be considered a threat to the security of Canada, as defined by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act. This law outlines four possible scenarios:

  • Espionage or sabotage
  • Foreign-influenced activities
  • Threats or use of acts of serious violence for political, religious or ideological objectives
  • Covert, unlawful acts intended to undermine or overthrow the constitutionally established government

It is so far unclear which scenario Mr. Trudeau would rely on to justify the use of the Emergency Act – none of these four scenarios have been clearly present in Ontario.

Does this qualify as a national emergency?

Trudeau continues to shred any credibility he has left, and the world is watching him morph into a tyrannical dictator.

With the never-used Emergencies Act, could this be Trudeau’s last stand before an unfettered collapse of his regime?

Politico writes:

The prime minister emphasized that the government would not use the act to call in the military. “We’re not suspending fundamental rights or overriding the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We are not limiting people’s freedom of speech. We are not limiting freedom of peaceful assembly, we are not preventing people from exercising their right to protest legally.”

Penalties under the Emergencies Act can be up to C$5,000 or a maximum of five years in prison or both. Under the Act, authorities can also obtain control over, for example, tow trucks for the removal of vehicles.

However, Jordan Schachtel notes in The Dossier the dangerous territory for Canadians to protect their civil liberties:

As the past few weeks have made clear, Canadians across the nation have had enough. The incredibly inspiring Truckers Protest has shown no signs of letting up. The working class wants to preserve their unalienable rights, and they do not seem to be intimidated by threats from the government.

Now, the overwhelmingly peaceful protesters in Canada are facing their greatest test yet. The Canadian regime continues to escalate to the point where Trudeau is now deploying the “Emergencies Act” to crush the protests.

The Emergencies Act has never been used, not even when the government decided to steal the rights of Canadians in enacting COVID-related draconian policies. The Emergencies Act is a modified version of the War Measures Act, which, during World War II, was used to detain and intern Japanese Canadian citizens. It was also utilized by Trudeau’s father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, to waive the civil rights of opposition groups and crack down on separatist and terrorist movements.

The elder Trudeau is famous for his “watch me” reply, when asked how far he was willing to take his fight against violent separatists and opponents of the government. Now, the younger Trudeau wants his “watch me” moment, and he is on the verge of suspending civil liberties to crush an almost unanimously peaceful truckers protest.

The world is watching Canada for what actions the Trudeau regime and peaceful protestors take next in this fight for bodily autonomy and medical freedom of choice.
