Prime Minister Trudeau (Canadian government) has invoked the Emergencies Act (formerly called the War Measures Act), doing so in response to peaceful Freedom Convoy in Ottawa. Trudeau required a majority of his own Cabinet to vote in favor of this Action.
The Emergency Act has never been used, even during Events of ‘9-11’. In the history of our nation, there has never been so great a threat against our freedoms and democracy than what we face today.
This is an urgent call to action for all Canadians, to take back our freedoms and democracy.
Canada turns authoritarian to shut down the ‘Freedom Convoy’
Canadian Parliament votes 181 to 151 to approve continued emergency powers, “doing all this using an emergency law that is only supposed to be invoked to deal with threats to “sovereignty, security and territorial integrity” of Canada.” As noted: “What is under threat are the basic freedoms of the Canadian people.” Real reason might be to intimidate non-Canadians from repeating the success of the trucker convoy in their country.
It is required that Trudeau bring before Parliament within seven days (measured as days parliament is in session) a report explaining his reasons for invoking the Act, and the measures it is taking or proposes to take and so.
Parliament must then vote either to confirm or reject the government’s decision. It requires a majority vote to approve in both the House (Members of Parliament) and also in the Canadian Senate. The PM can if he has the votes, move today for approval in the House, as it is currently in session.
