EPISODE 6: UNLUCKI
In the sixth episode of our documentary series, Trudeau On Trial, we scrutinize the role the Royal Canadian Mounted Police played in bringing an end to the Freedom Convoy.
The invocation of the Emergencies Act by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau granted the federal government unprecedented powers to deploy against Canadian citizens peacefully protesting his government, including the ability to freeze bank accounts.
“Unlucki” explores RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki's testimony at the Public Order Emergency Commission and how Canada's federal police force was used against the Freedom Convoy.
Lawyers Eva Chipiuk, Keith Wilson and Brendan Miller, who represented the truckers at the public inquiry investigating the Trudeau government's use of these war-time measures, take viewers through the concerning actions taken by the government along with the stunning revelation that Mounties were using mainstream media reporting to target convoy protesters and the ramifications of a potentially politicized police force.
Tune in tomorrow night at 7 p.m. ET (5 p.m. MT) for Trudeau On Trial's conclusion, episode seven, “The Redacted Truth”.

ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY:
One year after the Freedom Convoy arrived in Ottawa, Rebel News presents a new documentary examining the six-week-long public inquiry that investigated Prime Minister Trudeau's use of the Emergencies Act.
In January 2022, truckers and their supporters from across Canada converged in Ottawa to protest COVID-19 mandates in what became known as the Freedom Convoy.
On February 14, 2022, the world watched as Canada, often considered one of the most free and democratic countries in the world, was plunged into a state of chaos when its Liberal government, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, invoked war-time powers to crush this protest.
The Emergencies Act, the law which grants the government extraordinary powers in times of crisis, requires a public commission be formed to review the process behind this dramatic decision.
Now, you can see Trudeau stand trial for invoking this never-before-used piece of legislation. In Trucker Rebellion: Trudeau on Trial, we take you through the six-week-long Public Order Emergency Commission, which included on-the-record testimony from members of the public, protesters, police, city officials and Trudeau's cabinet, including the prime minister himself.
See exclusive footage of Freedom Convoy organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber, along with prominent participants like former Canadian Armed Forces officer Tom Marazzo.
Lawyers representing the convoy at the public inquiry, Keith Wilson, Eva Chipiuk and Brendan Miller will guide viewers through the events that transpired from the end of January and into the middle of February when the chaotic response to the Freedom Convoy culminated in Trudeau's federal officials assuming control from local authorities and overseeing the largest police operation in a generation.
