Former justice minister restores social media account following Emergencies Act coverup allegations

David Lametti resigned as an MP last week and shuttered his X (formerly Twitter) account shortly after a Federal Court justice deemed invoking the Emergencies Act in response to the Freedom Convoy was unconstitutional.

In case you missed the developments in this story over the weekend, Rebel News filed a lawsuit against David Lametti, who served as justice minister during the Freedom Convoy protest in 2022.

That protest, which began as a protest against a vaccine requirement for cross-border truckers before becoming an all-encompassing demonstration against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and ongoing public health restrictions, led to the invocation of the Emergencies Act by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government.

While the Public Order Emergency Commission found the Trudeau government acted appropriately by invoking Canada's strongest national security law, a Federal Court justice found it was a violation of Canadians' rights.

After this decision was made public, Lametti — who was removed from Trudeau's cabinet in July 2023 during a reshuffle — announced he was stepping down from his role as a member of Parliament.

Lametti then deleted his official government X account, effectively deleting comments from the records. That's why Rebel News launched StopTheCoverup.com, to obtain a court order demanding Lametti, or anyone else, not touch the records relating to the use of the Emergencies Act.

The former justice minister has since restored his account, perhaps already anticipating defeat at the hands of another court.

Rebel News boss Ezra Levant, who gave his instant analysis on the development in a livestream earlier today, will be in court for a preliminary procedural hearing later today.
