The showdown between the Freedom Convoy and the Canadian government reached its end game.
But no one saw this ending coming.
And Justin Trudeau just shut down the Freedom Convoy by issuing this insane order.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared martial law in Canada invoking the 1988 Emergencies Act to seize emergency power to end the protest.
The Canadian government will also declare the truckers and their supporters as domestic terrorists and seize their bank accounts without trial or due process.
This is the first time in Canada’s history that a Prime Minister invoked the Emergencies Act.
Trudeau’s decision ignited a political firestorm.
Governments across the world – even many provinces in Canada – rolled back vaccine requirements and other COVID mandates.
Instead of meeting with the truckers and acknowledging their demands to end COVID mandates at the federal level, Prime Minister Trudeau initiated a plan to crush the truckers and their supporters.
It is not going over well.
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association blasted Trudeau for imposing martial law via the Emergencies Act.
“The federal government has not met the threshold necessary to invoke the Emergencies Act. This law creates a high and clear standard for good reason: the Act allows the government to bypass ordinary democratic processes. This standard has not been met,” the Canadian Civil Liberties Association wrote.
The Prime Minister cannot invoke the Emergencies Act to shut down a lawful protest, and there is no evidence that the Freedom Convoy is a violent protest.
“The Emergencies Act can only be invoked when a situation ‘seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve the sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity of Canada,’ & when the situation ‘cannot be effectively dealt with under any other law of Canada,’ the Canadian Civil Liberties Association added.
“Governments regularly deal with difficult situations, and do so using powers granted to them by democratically elected representatives. Emergency legislation should not be normalized. It threatens our democracy and our civil liberties,” the Canadian Civil Liberties Association concluded.
Many were frightened by the manner in which governments and private corporations – including social media companies and banks – colluded to isolate and cripple the Freedom Convoy.
Governments and crowdfunding platforms never even hinted at cutting off support for BLM or invoking emergency powers to shut down the riots in 2020.
That’s because Black Lives Matter’s politics aligned with the leftist elite.
The manner in which companies and the government dealt with the Freedom Convoy made it clear that the right to protest and peacefully assemble is only reserved for the Left.
