Yesterday, the Federal Court ruled that the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acted unconstitutionally by invoking the Emergencies Act in response to the Freedom Convoy in 2022.

Ezra Levant held a breaking news livestream, commenting on this particular event.

Despite the court's ruling, Public Safety Minister Dominic LeBlanc backed the Liberal government's choice to invoke the Emergencies Act

"Context is important, I think it's also important to note that the House of Commons ratified the decision to invoke," said LeBlanc.

"But as my colleague said, the judicial system also includes appeal mechanisms and the government made that decision."

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland also weighed in on the court's decision, stating, "We respect very much Canada's independent judiciary. However, we do not agree with this decision and respectfully, we will be appealing it."

LeBlanc also pointed out in his speech that the Ontario Premier was okay with the invocation of the Emergencies Act.

"I think it's also important to consider the government was given information with respect to the disruption at the border crossing in Coots, Alberta," LeBlanc added.

"So the Context is important, I think it's also important to note that the House of Commons ratified the decision to invoke."
