On Monday, February 14, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canadian history.
The decision was made in response to the ongoing blockades and protests against the government's COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.
This Act empowers law enforcement with the means to manage the Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa by whatever means possible and allows the federal government to override the provinces by authorizing special measures to ensure safety during "national emergencies".
Canada is not currently facing a national emergency. In fact, the Freedom Convoy has been nothing but peaceful since its inception.
Parliament still has the power to revoke this Act, so let's ensure they use their authority to rescind Trudeau's unprecedented abuse of power.
