Every weeknight, Rebel News brings you analysis from the day's proceedings of the Public Order Emergency Commission investigating Justin Trudeau's use of the Emergencies Act.

Today marked the final day of the public inquiry, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau himself taking the stand. As the first prime minister to ever use the act, Trudeau attempted to justify his extraordinary decision. After 31 days of testimony from nearly every facet of the protest itself, the commission will finally come to an end.

On tonight's show, Sheila Gunn Reid joins William Diaz-Berthiaume and Selene Galas will reflect on Trudeau's testimony along with the entirety of the hearing itself. Join us as we put a wrap one this fascinating chapter of Canadian political history.

The public inquiry investigating Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's decision to invoke the Emergencies Act began on Oct. 13. As part of the government's obligations following the invocation of the Act, a commission must be convened within 60 days and its subsequent report must be tabled in Parliament within 360 days after the Act is revoked.

This inquiry, deemed the Public Order Emergency Commission, was announced by Trudeau on April 25 after the Emergencies Act was revoked on February 23. The mandate delivered from the prime minister tasks the commission with handling the examination and assessment of the basis for the Trudeau government's decision to use the Emergencies Act, the circumstances leading up to the invocation and whether this was an appropriate and effective measure chosen by the government to address the Freedom Convoy.

A review of the legislative policy and regulatory framework will also be part of the commission's duties, which could feature potential amendments to the Emergencies Act. The full order in council relating to the Public Order Emergency Commission can be read here.
