In acknowledgement of Remembrance Day, the Public Order Emergency Commission is taking a one day pause this Friday.

Our Rebel News team will be reflecting on what we've learned so far through more than 20 days of the public inquiry into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's use of the Emergencies Act, and what's left to come, including testimony from Trudeau himself.

We'll also, of course, be reflecting on the sacrifices made by Canadians in protecting and upholding the values of freedom and democracy across the world.

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inquiry, deemed the Public Order Emergency Commission, was announced by Trudeau on April 25 after the Emergencies Act was revoked on February 23.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.
